Five new installations are on display in Tacoma's old Woolworth storefront and the adjacent Tollbooth Gallery as part of the Spaceworks Artscapes program.
The exhibits are sponsored by Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber and the city to activate empty spaces, and can be seen through Nov. 17.
This is the 19th round of commissioned installations from Spaceworks. The artists include Lauren Boilini, Eva Funderburgh, Nola Avienne, Isaac Olsen, and Tacoma's Wayzgoose linocut steamroller prints.
This photo shows an installation by Nola Avienne titled “Ashflow” that depicts a pyroclastic eruption using rocks, iron filings, wool, spray foam, fabric and sand.
Avienne said it conveys “the unreal stillness just before disaster hits, the moment of heightened senses when minute details are perceived. This volcano portrait includes the impact of craters, the slow advance of Pahoehoe lava, vertical thrust of volcanic strata, and the rain of ash holding its breath for a brief second.”
