Maritime Festival Exhibit 

(image above is a t-shirt design by Travis Pranger
for Maritime Festival this weekend) 

We will be visiting the opening ceremony and salute to Tacoma's Maritime Fest, in its 22nd year, featuring four exhibits all inspired by the theme "Boats!"

1) Paintings and drawings by the Al Davies, Gonyea and Lakewood Branches of The Boys & Girls Clubs* created by kids from 6-18 yrs old.

2) Two dimensional collage artwork from the kids from The Multicultural Child and Family Hope Center.

3) KATE CENDEJAS, muralist, creates a painted boat and ship theme on a NW CONTAINER boxcar, with Tacoma kids helping her paint.

4) A sculpture show featuring the works of local professional artists: Laura Borak, Ric Hall, Victoria Johnson, Ann Meersman, Di Morgan-Graves, Eileen Newton/Juan LaTorre, Jennevieve Schlemmer, Holly A Senn, Carlos Taylor-Swanson, and Chris Wooten. Ten boats from two to three feet long: Eleven artists.


Rampant Antiques



ART BUS will also be visiting Rampant Antiques where we will learn about "Why Adam?" an educational and entertaining television show about the science behind everyday life. We will see the TV studio currently under construction and meet the host of the show, Adam C. Boyd!



Brick House Gallery




ART BUS will visit Brick House Gallery's feature artist: Robert Vogel. He started teaching drawing and figure drawing at UPS in the early 1970’s. This retrospective shows the personal work that he has done; a selection of large major works and a number of drawings and studies, taken from his studio. This exhibit is put together to give an idea of just how much work can go on behind the scenes to produce the work that is shown. This man has drawn many miles of lines. Word of warning: There are lots of body parts on view. 

SPUN Clay Arts Studio 



Owners and local artists April Sanders and Jenn English provide a patient, casual, and creative environment for the eclectic crew of Tacomans to get messy. Some offerings are; pottery classes, open studio (‘Free Spin’), and the option to sell your work in the SPUN Gallery. Think of it as the dive bar for artists, where you are comfortable going in any attire, any time of day, at any age. No judging, just a friendly and supportive atmosphere. During your tour, browse the SPUN gallery and spend a few minutes watching a live demo on the wheel! Have a drink with the girls and be sure to say hi to Mr. Belvedere (their pet fish)! 


Concrete Market

(details coming soon)

Mod Curio 





Moss + Mineral



Moss + Mineral's Opening reception for “METAL & PAINT: New work by Jeremiah Maddock, Kyle Dillehay and Quinn Honan.” This show marks the long-awaited return of painter Jeremiah Maddock, who has been logging miles on the art scene from NYC to LA and Berlin. Plus, two different modes of environmental sculpture: Quinn Honan's functional table integrates live moss; and Kyle Dillehay's intricate bronze sculptures sprout living botanicals! Show runs through October 30. Attached photo: Enigmatic steelwork by Quinn Honan.


Shoot The T Photo Contest 


We went to this last time they did it and it was so great! The photos of Tacoma art fantastic! ART BUS is happy to be returning to visit Tacoma's favorite photo competition "Shoot The T" in their 2nd installment. Selections have been narrowed down to the top 50 and in-store voting begins tonight. The public is being asked to come down and vote for their favorite photos of Tacoma.

STOP #8 on the May ART BUS Tour

Thursday May 15th 6 - 9 pm

ART BUS will also be visiting The Swiss - Tacoma, WA during our tour tomorrow night. This month The Swiss features art by Jennifer Chin. While Jennifer’s primary focus is painting and collage, printmaking and technology continue to be strong influences. In 1995 Jennifer completed a BA in Art from the University of Washington. Her paintings and prints are included in private collections in Arizona, California, Texas, and Washington. Jennifer currently lives and works in Tacoma.

She says, "My paintings are process and time driven. Deep pours of acrylic are affected by gravity, cracking textures are created through controlled chance (the thicker the paint the larger the cracks, the thinner the finer the cracks), and paints are watered down and left to pool and evaporate leaving patterns behind that are later enhanced over and over using the same processes. Each painting evolves while I work and reworked it, and the titles give a hint into the unique themes that emerge during this process that can take each layer anywhere from minutes to days to dry. There is always logic to be found in the chaos around us."

STOP #2 on the May ART BUS Tour

Thursday May 15th 6 - 9 pm


The second stop on the ART BUS tour is the Brick House Gallery. The exhibit is called "Thinking Out Loud," a group of work by Cathy Fields. These paintings are all about nature and environments; in the past, present and future, and the inhabitants of these places – mammalian and otherwise. They are not only fun to look at, they give a glimpse into the mind of a truly independent thinker.
