Join us for the multitude of fun and festivities during First Night Tacoma on New Year’s Eve! Spaceworks is happy to announce a new round of art installations in the Woolworth Windows. Here is a sneak peak:
11th St. between Broadway and Commerce
December 31, 2013 – April 17, 2014
Featuring Becky Frehse, Acataphasia Grey, and the RAGS Guild
Becky Frehse presents the very colorful “Music Box,” composed of mixed media paintings and constructions using repurposed musical instruments including a piano, guitar, several violins and a Chinese yue qin. Forrest Rumbaugh from Northwest Staging and Sound is collaborating with Becky to provide theatrical spot lighting with timers to animate the installation.
A black, monstrous “Spider Horse” peers out the window on to Commerce Street. Acataphasia Grey, creator of phantasmagoria, was featured earlier this year on the AMC reality show “Immortalized” about the art of taxidermy. For this exhibition she brings us an installation titled “Own the Nightmare” in which she states “Nightmares are bad, everyone knows that… but what if that was never the truth? On the other side of a belief thinner than a sheet of paper is an entirely different perspective.”
Taking over two of the largest windows will be the “20 Year Retrospective of RAGS” including a gallery of work from 30 artists. RAGS is an annual wearable art sale & show where all proceeds go to benefit domestic violence programs at the YWCA-Pierce County. Spaceworks is proud to help promote the RAGS Guild, the artists, and their important mission as they approach the 20th Annual RAGS show coming up this March 2014!
