Kids are back in school and fall is almost here, but there is still plenty going on inside or out this weekend. Lynn Jacobson, the Seattle Times features editor, visited the studio to let us know "What's going on."
1. "American Knockoff": Seattle-born painter Roger Shimomura's new exhibition at Greg Kucera gallery skewers Asian stereotypes in flashy, comic-book-style compositions and colors. Reviewers are calling this show museum-quality. It runs through Sept. 28 in Pioneer Square.
2. Night Market and Moon Festival: Lion dancing, break dancing, social dancing to Korean pop - but the Night Market and Moon Festival isn't all about dancing. There are food and shopping, too, with stores open in the Chinatown/International District until midnight on Saturday.
3. Washington State Fair: Don't call it The Puyallup! The fair has rebranded itself as the Washington State Fair, but the array of entertainment will look familiar to anyone who loves this rite of fall. In addition to rides, games, animal exhibits, food and a rodeo, there's a solid lineup of country, pop and jazz acts on the main stage, including Carrie Underwood, Kid Rock and Al Jarreau.
