Art everywhere

Watch out when you’re walking, you might step on the art. It’s all over the place, more often than not hidden in plain sight. Sometimes hidden by virtue of being overly familiar; your eyes just take it in and spit it out without ever processing it through the brain. Like

Pure form

If you’re bored by the art of Donald Judd and Richard Serra — and Carl Andre and Agnes Martin and Robert Ryman, and even Hans Hoffman — and especially if you don’t even know or care who these artists are, then don’t bother to visit the Cory Ryman show at

It’s about time

The art in Black Front Gallery’s latest show is more conceptual than visual. Erica Lord, a visual arts teacher at The Evergreen State College, is a photographer, sculptor and installation artist who brings a mixed-race heritage to her identity-based art. And when I say mixed race, I mean really mixed. Try

Cool neon

“My new artist is a local guy who does some pretty avant-garde neon work. He is that guy who drives that Volvo station wagon with the rocket on top. … This guy is pretty cool.”  That’s what Oliver Doriss from Fulcrum Gallery has to say about his latest featured artist. The

Treetopia

This week I dropped by Childhood’s End in Olympia where the featured artist is Jiji Saunders. She does colorful landscapes in encaustic on wood. She makes good use of the encaustic media with rough textures and murky depths. Her landscapes are kind of Wolf Kahn-esque. Each painting features a single

Kicking glass

Recent visual arts coverage in the Weekly Volcano has been all about glass. I was very generous in my praise of Lino Tagliapietra, Willim Morris, and Paul and Dante Marioni. But I might have rankled some glass lovers when I wrote: “I might as well confess right now that I

The magnificent way

Chuck Close is something of a one-trick pony, but he does that one trick magnificently. He does portraits of his friends in an almost endless variety of media and techniques, usually close-ups with sharp focus on the center of the face and fading along the edges. This internationally famous artist

Rocking glass

Father and son glass artists Paul (father) and Dante (son) Marioni are showing together for only the second time anywhere at William Traver Gallery in Tacoma. Going against all reasonable expectations, it is the father whose work displays a more youthful, impish and edgy attitude while the younger Marioni is

Strange combinations

Interesting show: Jason Greene, Molly Wolfe and Jeremy Bert at Black Front Gallery in Olympia. Wolfe and Bert complement one another nicely. Wolfe works with glass and found objects, Bert with recycled neon signs. Both are showing objects that are iconic and that seem to combine an early industrial look
