If you're from Tacoma you may be familiar with Artco. But have you heard of Artco Framing + Gallery?
Artco Framing + Gallery
Artco craft store closed recently which opened up an opportunity. Jennifer Moore jumped at the opportunity to acquire the name.
Artco Framing and Gallery opened just across the parking lot from the old Artco craft store.
The frame store + gallery combines fine art framing with highlighting local fine art in their beautiful white walled gallery space.
Amy Lewis uses watercolor and oil paints to explore the beauty in everyday life. She uses vivid realism to showcase things (especially food) we often take for granted.
Amy is a self taught artist. She is currently a member of Women Painters of Washington. The show includes some of Amy's earliest works but is she excited to debut 5 new pieces.
Erika also explores themes of food. She works in intricate miniature colored pencil drawings and drop dead gorgeous paper cutouts.
Erika is interested in how food is viewed culturally and our relationship to food as individuals.
Erika is classically trained with her MA in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths' College (University of London/LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore). She is also a graduate of the Artist Trust Professional Development Program. Her work was selected for the 2013 Best Picks: Painting/Mixed Media gallery for the International Emerging Artist Award and in 2014, she was a finalist in the Ryan James Fine Arts juried show.
The reception (party) is tomorrow! April 20th from 4-7 pm. Snacks + drinks provided. All art will be available for purchase as well as prints.
You can check out available works and fine art prints on their sites right now.
But they hope to see you at Artco. Art is 1000% times better in person and they'd love to meet you!
