Through Feb. 1: Paitings by Carla Paine

Carla Paine's paintings at Olyphant Art Supply in Olympia are as rich and luscious as the settings for her portraits and still-lifes. They harken back to a time when artists were considered to have been chosen and blessed by God, when they painted their pictures for kings and popes and

Author Darrell Reeck grew up close to Fort Lewis and McChord

It's hard to think of Tacoma as a frontier town. We think of it as Grit City, the City of Destiny, T-town. It's a working-class hub of industry and art, not an outpost. But in the early-to-mid part of the 20th century, Tacoma, multi-cultural and economically booming, was a frontier for

Urban Spelunker: East 72nd and Portland, Tacoma

In the heart of Tacoma's eastside, you'll find the intersection of East 72nd and Portland. With a concentration of apartments and housing developments paired with lots of big box retails (think Kmart) and fast food dining (think Wendy's), this area yields an immense level of car and pedestrian traffic. You'll

Theater Review: "Shout!" is a thing I can do without

I'm this close to giving up on jukebox musicals altogether. For one thing, the people who enjoy them - and those people are legion - do so for reasons that have nothing to do with theater criticism. I like nostalgia, too, which is why I have '80s songs on my

Wednesday, Jan. 29: Science Fair Success

When the science fair notice arrives at the Swarner household, I wish to be deported to a camp 60 miles south of Vegas. These are dangerous times, my friends, especially for those living in Tacoma's Northend neighborhood. My tweener and I don the white lab coats and flirt with the

Tuesday, Jan. 28: Comics and Pizza Club

When you think "book club," is the first image that comes to mind a bunch of middle-aged women with their chairs pulled in a circle sipping white wine and discussing the latest hoity-toity-pabulum-for-the-masses endorsed by Oprah? If you're like me, that holds absolutely zero appeal. Give me something that's fun

Monday, Jan. 27: Slavery in the Northwest

In 1619, there were only a handful of slaves in the United States — 20 Africans landing on the shores as indentured servants, with tenures up to seven years, then freedom. Four decades later, because of Eli Whitney's cotton gin, the U.S. slave population soared. By the mid-1700s, there were

Saturday, Jan. 25: DJ Donald Glaude

In the early ‘80s, Donald Glaude filled our high-school house parties with Funkadelic, Commodores and underground hip-hop. We (meaning dorky dudes) would mount the REAL quarters table while the women flocked around Glaude. His musical knowledge, good looks and outgoing personality made him king of Lakes High School. From there,
