Repeat worthy

I visited the Tacoma Art Museum again last week. Having already seen most of what’s on display, I went back to see what I’d missed and re-view shows I’ve already written about. Guess what. Mary Randlett’s Puget Sound landscape photographs are still as hauntingly beautiful as ever, and the quilts
