Fascination and repulsion

Olympia is losing the only thing it has that resembles a cutting-edge art gallery. It’s not surprising. When it comes down to dollars and cents, Olympia is not much of an art town. There may be a shipload of artists in town, but there’s less than a rowboat load of

Walk through the park

Have you ever seen the art in Wright Park? I mean really seen it? Or have you, like me, passed by countless times without noticing it at all. Maybe you haven’t noticed because it is really old-fashioned and grungy — the newest pieces were erected in 1976 and 1978, and

Close as Close

Photographer and curator Chip Van Gilder has come up with a clever concept for a group show at Grand Impromptu Gallery, the artist-owned co-op two doors down from the Grand Cinema. And it’s about time. So far, every show at this gallery has been a hodgepodge of art

199 supplicants

Kader Attia, featured artist at the Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington, presents work that is equally effective in terms of idea, form and emotional impact. He expresses deep sympathy for the human condition through artworks that are inventive and classically solid in design. Massive architectural forms fill one large gallery.

Street art

The terms “cutting edge” and “street art” are tossed around a lot. The current show at Black Front Gallery is the real thing. These artists are like feral cats brought inside and trained — only everybody knows you can’t really train an alley cat. OK, I exaggerate. Only some of these

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
