Wonderful weave

I love the title of Laura Sharp-Wilson’s show at The Black Front Gallery: “You Are in the Weave Whether You Like It or Not.” That title fits beautifully with the look of Sharp-Wilson’s paintings — or the look of her paintings as seen in reproduction on the gallery Web site

Art on the Ave

Sunday’s well-organized Art on the Ave festival drew sunny skies and large crowds for nine blocks of musical, artsy, community fun and games with food and drink offerings for every palate. Serving as the center point of the event, Lynn Di Nino’s “CHAOS into Order” temporary tower-creating performance art featured nuns

Picket Range, Warner Drive and more

Friday, July 6 BLUEGRASS picket range bluegrass band Wikipedia says Picket Range is a small, extremely rugged subrange of the North Cascades in the northwestern part of the American state of Washington. MySpace says it’s a bluegrass band from, of all places, Seattle. So, I get it, bluegrass is considered to be

Art on the Ave

Nine years ago, a newbie Tacoma resident ventured onto Sixth Avenue to see what “Art on the Ave” was all about. “I saw, like, four tables and a couple of people walking around,” recalls Claudia Riedener with a chuckle. This year, as she pokes her head out onto Sixth Ave, she’s likely

Jason Gutz

Jason Gutz, sporting the latest in runway-chic summer fashion for resident aliens, pauses outside the garage “set” of the movie “The Obituary Writer.” His coat, a military surplus find, would have gone well with the cavalry gaiters he almost wore (which didn’t fit over his black boots), the car-manifold chest piece

Dinosaurs walk among us

There is something about dinosaurs that makes people turn their heads and stare. It could be their massive teeth and their scale-covered skin. Or it could be their bubbly personalities and live-and-let-live lifestyle. Dinosaurs always draw a crowd. A gathering of more than a dozen of the prehistoric loafers will be

Toys are us: affirmative to battling ‘bots

“Now I have fans who say, ‘We are so sorry, Michael Bay, you still suck, but we love you.’”  That’s what the director of “Transformers” told Simon Ang during an interview in Seoul.  He could have been speaking for me.  I think Michael Bay sometimes sucks (“Pearl Harbor,” “Armageddon”), but I

Shrew for you

Theater Artists Olympia takes pride in being the quirky theater that even the liberal, artsy folks of the state capital would consider a bit out there. It can talk the talk because it certainly walks the walk, staging shows — and its own revisions of works — that carry TAO’s

Tab Benoit

You can find Tab Benoit’s CDs in the blues section of your local record shop. Not sure why. To me, blues means shuffles and slow blues, which Benoit rarely performs, and akin to country, blues has a very distinct sound.  So where would I stock his records?  I’d probably give him his

Summertime music

Festival season is upon us, and that means sunshine on your shoulder, cold drink in your hand and people around who are feeling, well, festive! There’s just something magical about the sound of music echoing down a car-less street or billowing across a grassy field. We’ve already whet our musical palates

Rock N Roll Craft Show

iRetarded. iEmbarrassing. If you take an honest look at the iPhone phenomena — you know the one, it’s been endlessly reported on, talked about, blogged about, and generally forced down our throats since the iPhone was released last week — how can you not hang your head in shame? Driving around Tacoma

Outdoor Shumba, psychics and more

THE TOUR Public art tours Back when I worked in downtown Olympia, I faced cockroaches the size of mice, mice the size of cats, and cats with nasty cases of pinkeye. And that was just in my office. Would it make you feel better if I told you that the office is

License To Wed

The best part of “License to Wed” comes fairly late in the movie, after you haven’t laughed nearly enough, after you’ve looked at your watch a half-dozen times, and long after you’ve decided you don’t care about the characters, not one bit.  It’s when John Krasinski punches Robin Williams in the

Northend trifecta

Even though I’m your official nightlife correspondent, I have to confess that I’m not perfect. I wish it was possible for me to be in all places at all times (even though it might seem like that really is the case), but I am only one, singular girl. The point of the

Mining the geoducks

His name is Cendtary Xeno, and he goes by Cen. He sings, plays guitar, and writes most of the music for Dem Zaing.  The dark sounds are, to me, a sort of cave-meets-metal thing where, if I used my kid’s visualization techniques of music, I’d visualize blacksmiths working on a subterranean level

What\'s playing

Iman.  Kirsten Dunst.  Gisele Bundchen. Tyra Banks. Cindy Crawford. Cameron Diaz.  Naomi Campbell. Heidi Klum.  Claudia Schiffer. Uma Thurman. What do all these women have in common? Each has been represented — or is represented — by Elite Model Management, who will be sending scouts to the South Hill Mall on Saturday,

Collecting art

Art, art, art! I’ve been trying to collect some art that wasn’t mass-produced, since “mass produced” and “art” seem contrary to me.  In place of the somewhat tilted sandy beach black and white photograph in our bedroom, the significant one and I will be seeing the lushness of a black and white
