I have been invited to be part of the pride celebration this year put on by The Mix . This Saturday July 10th. Located at the corner of 7th and Saint Helens Ave there will be a Makers Market from 12 – 7 in addition to the wild festivities throughout the day. The Market features local crafts-persons and artists in addition to performers and DJ’s durring the Block Party.
Happy Pride! I took this opportunity to create some new Items for your enjoyment! I put my personal spin on a favorite local product known as the “Float” or Sea Ball. I have modified my signature silver cutting process used in my Decal Cups to create custom crests for these decorative floats. And because of pride I produced some in a rainbow hue, kind of a Pride ball if you will, complete with the prerequisite unicorn. Available this weekend or at my studio on Hilltop located in the back of Fulcrum Gallery.
Summit Olympus Art Crawl 20/21 Summit Olympus High School Art Show Multiple Locations & Virtually June 2nd to June 11th Opening Reception at ETC June 4th 1-7pm Open House At Fulcrum Gallery June 9th from 1pm-5pm
Summit Olympus Art Crawl is a multi venue art exhibition featuring cumulative works from Summit Olympus High Schools 20/21 class. Over the past year, students at Summit Olympus High School have been learning and participating in classes virtually through Zoom. While remote schooling has been challenging for all, it has also opened a window for new ways of growth and self-expression. In this show, students use a variety of mediums found in their homes, including graphite, photography, digital animation, watercolors, and pen, to present their perspectives on what it means to exist and grow up within a global pandemic. Touching upon themes of anxiety, stress, identity and what progress looks like in the midst of an ever-changing society. These art pieces explore the individual experiences of the artists with the communal experience of our Tacoma neighborhoods. – Kristen Guerra
