Coffee with Guppy

Val Kiossovski co-owns the Solo Bar on Lower Queen Anne and Saint John’s Bar and Eatery on Capitol Hill. Since 2000, he has played lead guitar in the “gypsy punk” band Kultur Shock, which mixes rock, metal and punk with traditional music of the Balkans. 

Initially specializing in 20th century photography, Gail Gibson has since expanded her gallery to include contemporary artists working in a variety of media. After 25 years in Pioneer Square, she relocated to a new space in Lower Queen Anne (104 W Roy St.) last fall.
