Weekly Round-up 2/3-2/9

 

This has been a great couple of weeks!

I met Patricia Boyer in person, after finding her on Facebook. I stalked her artwork for a couple of days, then reached out. We did our interview at the Coffey and Thompson gallery.

It was the first time I had been there, even though i’ve passed by them for years.

When I got home from our interview, I got a text from another artist,  Carol Ann Minor’s daughter. She thought her mother would get a kick out of being interviewed. So I met with her at Coffey and Thompson,  

Carol is a very talented sculptor who has an inspiring story. She is deaf and basically a self-taught sculptor. [She wanted some figurines, so she made them herself out of soap!] Since then, she’s been coached and mentored by professionals who have helped her develop her natural talent. She uses other materials like bronze and clay. Stay tuned for the podcast…

It was great to see Sarah Ness again. She’s starting a new business, Arts in Health Institute, where she uses her skills to train other health professionals to incorporate the arts in their therapies.

Didn’t make it to any galleries this week, but I always enjoy the art at Legion Brewing, Plaza-Midwood at Tuesday night trivia. Art is curated there by Megan Lynch, who I haven’t actually met yet, but have read about & am super-impressed by.

Such Friends


Episode 78: I met Kathleen Dixon Donnelly on Facebook. She’s a writer who lives in Birmingham, UK with her Irish husband. She is originally from Pittsburgh.

Our research cross paths & her blog, Such Friends covers a lot of the same people in the Irish Literary Revival that I am writing about.  I wanted to have her on the podcast so  we could chat about the subject of my upcoming book.

MRL-Steampunk-468x60

Episode 55: Today I talk with Sonya Pfeiffer,  the new owner  of the Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art about her fabulous Art of Struggle exhibition, which features the art of MyLoan Dinh, Charles Farrar and Susan Brenner.

I was able to actually go to the gallery to see the exhibition for myself.  This emotionally charged show literally brought tears to my eyes as it shows a unique take on the nature of struggle and the beauty that can result.

30 Americans

Episode 52: Brooke talks with Rock Hushka, chief curator of the Tacoma Art Museum about the 30 Americans exhibition which runs until this Sunday, January 15, 2017.  The critically acclaimed showcase of influential African-American artists who have have emerged as leading contributors to the contemporary art scene in the United States was put together nearly a decade ago, but is making its West Coast debut at the TAM.  Eight of the thirty artists featured have strong Pacific Northwest connections, and the TAM has several programs related to the exhibition to involve the community in the discussion.
