Women rule

Do I detect a trend, or is it mere coincidence that for two months in a row A.O.C. Gallery has featured four women artists? The last time it was a quartet of fiber artists. This time it’s printmakers. Good ones, too. The best in this show are Klara Glosova and Betsy

Get your glass down there

Glass, all glass and nothing but glass. That seems to be the new focus of the previously misnamed Museum of Glass: International Center for Contemporary Art. Yep, MOG got smart and did away with the last part of that heavily ambitious name and simplified its mission to reflect a direction it,

Bold pencil

If you happen to be in downtown Olympia when The Black Front Gallery is open, stop in to see Julia Gfrörer’s exquisite pencil drawings. They’re simple and easy on the eye, and it won’t take you long to give them the kind of thorough study they deserve. But I bet

Viaduct viable in Tacoma

Once upon a time, a few years ago, there was an all-ages club run by Brian Skiffington and Rachel Keenan called the Frameshop in a suburb of Tacoma called Midland. About a year and few neighborhood complaints later, it closed down. Across town in University Place there was an all-ages club

Gestural love

Chuck Gumpert and Christopher Mathie are painters after my own heart. They both love the act of painting ― the kind of painting that since the 1940s has been called “gestural,” a word not recognized by dictionaries but well loved by artists the world over. Gumpert and Mathie share a studio,

Mining Glass

“Mining Glass” at the Museum of Glass features installations by eight contemporary glass artists. Some are great, some are interesting but unexciting, and some are just boring. The big disappointment is Maya Lin, one of the most exciting and intelligent artists working in America today. Lin is the creator of the

The girlie show

The latest show at A.O.C. Gallery is called “Divergent Metaphors.” I’m tempted to call it “The Girlie Show.” But that would be sexist. It is a show of fiber art by four recent graduates of the University of Washington: Julia Waldeck, Robin Sterling Brewer, Liz Frey, and Deborah Gregory. Overall, this

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

Street art

Graffiti has grown up. From hip-hop tagging of the ’70s and ’80s, graffiti has blossomed into an international street art movement. Street art. That’s what the new graffiti is called. And it goes far beyond spray painting the sides of buildings. In addition to wall paintings, the new street art may
