The pictures in Unnatural Selections, animal portraits, by Erik Fremstad of Olympia on view beginning Feb. 16 at Lakewold Gardens in Lakewood, are each made up of thousands of words — and these words count. Selections are detailed, realistic depictions of iconic North American species done in pen and ink and watercolor.
The Gallery at Tacoma Community College is hosting its second annual Black Artists’ Exhibition in celebration of Black History Month with a lavish display of painting, drawing, photography, glass and digital art. Twenty-two South Sound artists are represented, and there are more than 40 pieces of art in the gallery.
“Another thing I think is different and nice about this event is that it’s not just visual artists,” Daniel Garcia continues. “In some cases, we have literary artists, we have poets, we have dancers, so we’re really trying to find that whole realm of artistry and bring it through to Arts at the Armory.”
