Fourth Annual Juried Local Art Exhibition
The Gallery at Tacoma Community College

An interesting and exciting presentation of art in a variety of media by selected Puget Sound artists.


The show was reviewed by the Weekly Volcano Art Critic, Alec Clayton, who had this to say about the show and our work submitted...
There's some good stuff in the fourth annual Juried Local Art Exhibition at The Gallery at Tacoma Community College. There's also some dull stuff and a few paintings that are so amateurish I can't imagine how they got in the show. Oh well, that's the nature of juried art exhibitions. They're manic-depressive.
I won't bother to write about the bad stuff or the mediocre stuff, and space limitations prevent me from mentioning all of the good stuff. But I'll try to touch on the best.


The Gallery hours are 9 A.M. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; admission is free.
  
The Gallery at TCC, in its fourth year of operation, provides space for student, faculty and outside art exhibits. It also provides students in TCC’s Museum Gallery Operations program a hands-on space in which to learn. The 2,000 square-foot gallery was designed by schacht-aslani architects of Seattle and constructed by Construction Enterprises and Contractors Inc. of Tacoma.
 
The Gallery is located on TCC’s main campus, 6501 S. 19th St., Tacoma. To access The Gallery, use the entrance just off South 12th Street between Pearl and Mildred streets. For more information, call 253.460.4306 or visit  The Gallery pages.
