Spaceworks Announces Round 10 Artscapes Installations

11 Sep
Creativity, Literacy, Love

Write@253 Installation

Spaceworks Tacoma is excited to announce a new round of Artscapes installations on display until the end of December 2013. Nine new installations will brighten otherwise vacant spaces in downtown Tacoma, featuring work presented by artists Nathan Braunfeld, Brett Carlson, Priscilla Dobler, Elizabeth Gahan, Jeremy Gregory, Kristin Giordano & Mindy Barker, Kelly June Mitchell, Scott Scoggin and Write@253. The range of projects is expansive and includes literary, film, performance and visual art.

A new venue for Spaceworks is in the lobby of the Old Post Office located at 11th and A Street. Six meticulous “Meta-tinations” by Brett Carlson fill two long display cases along with tin scraps showing his art-making process. And Scott Scoggin celebrates a year’s worth of poster design in ten display cases throughout the lobby in a show called “Whew!” Scott will also host a one-night pop-up show on Third Thursday, October 17, featuring live music and refreshments.

Downtown on the GoSpaceworks and Downtown On the Go (DOTG) partnered up for this round of Artscapes to transform three sides of a vacant building at the corner of South 11th and Market Street. Artist Jeremy Gregory has created a block-long mural on South 11th Street entitled “A to B”. The community writing center Write@253 has filled an alley with poetry by Tacoma children. And on Market, artists Kristin Giordano & Mindy Barker beckon, “Humans, Join Us!™” with a crew of animals, some one-story tall, on roller skates and skateboards!

Elizabeth Gahan

Color Wave installation

The steadfast Artscapes location of the Woolworth Windows at 11th and Broadway and Commerce offers four installations to contemplate. Nathan Braunfeld presents a cross section of the Sierra Nevada with gradual moving lighting that represents the rotation of the earth. A simple and stark white installation will be transformed with color by artist Priscilla Dobler during a five-day performance in a Woolworth Window (October 14-18). Kelly June Mitchell begs “remember that you will die” while enjoying a beautiful visual sight of huge pink flowers. A “Color Wave” of cut-up political signs adorns one window by Elizabeth Gahan. Plus, across from the windows on Broadway sits The Tollbooth Gallery, which has a rotating roster of films by Tacoma filmmakers curated by Kat Ogden, on view outdoors 24/7 (well, it’s down for repairs, but will be up and running soon).

Artscapes applications were reviewed in July by a talented and devoted selection panel of: Katy Evans, Metro Parks, Post Defiance and Spaceworks Steering Committee Member; Judi Hyman, TWOKOI Japanese Cuisine Operations Manager, Downtown Merchants Group President and DOTG Board Member; Holly Knoll, Rescue Mission Creative Director; Elise Richman, Artist and Associate Professor of Art at the University of Puget Sound; Mike Sweney, ArtsWA Program Manager and Tacoma Arts Commissioner.

Self-portrait, by Sara Montour

Congratulations to three artists selected for 2011 Spaceworks Tacoma creative residencies: photographer Sara Montour, and graphic designers Jacqui and Scott Scoggin of Slide Sideways. By chance, all three artists moved to the Tacoma area in late 2009 – Montour from Minneapolis, the Scoggins by way of Seattle – hit it off at a dinner party, and quickly established themselves on the local scene. They will share a collaborative space at 913 Pacific Avenue from May through November.

Montour's non-traditional maternity photography

Sara Montour is a portrait photographer who brings a laser-like focus to her craft, couched in a laid-back attitude. “I’m a sucker for a great moment,” the University of Minnesota grad writes on her website. “Those split seconds that make you smile from the inside out.” Her wedding albums and individual portraits capture such quicksilver, behind-the-scenes moments, creating naturalistic images that endure.

Pop poster, by Slide Sideways.

Slide Sideways is the brainchild of husband-and-wife duo, Scott & Jacqui Scoggin. The design studio’s beautifully rendered, original screen prints were a standout at the (recently closed) indie boutique, fly, and can be found with a full line of artist products at their Etsy store.

“We founded Slide Sideways in 2009 with the desire to produce compelling visuals and connect with good people & organizations,” the duo explains on their website. “Our process is rooted in the age-old principles of design and craftsmanship, which usually involves us putting pencil to paper before even touching the computer. We’re inspired by everyday life and our surroundings and find great value in putting time and thought into each project.” Organic cotton tea towels artfully printed by hand, minimalist graphic tees and silk-screened sketchbooks are a few of the offerings on their Etsy site.

A graphic shout out by Slide Sideways.

The downtown residency of Slide Sideways and Sara Montour will mark an exciting addition to the Tacoma art map. “The goal for us [is] to have a communal workspace that allows the three of us to not only collaborate together in our different mediums” but have a professional space in which to take meetings, says Montour. A “visually awesome window display” is planned, as well as Third Thursday art walk openings and other events. Slide Sideways and Sara Montour Photography, 913 Pacific Avenue, May through November 2011 (exact dates TBA).
