WINTER HOURS: Moss + Mineral will be open Saturdays, noon-5, and by appointment-only through mid-February 2015. I’m currently working at the jewelry bench and searching out objects and furniture for the store – but am frequently at M+M watering plants – so please don’t hesitate to call if you want to browse…

"Futurism" by Lisa Kinoshita

Our current room vignette is about mid-century cool, exemplified by a powerful, thickly-encrusted portrait painting by Ohm-Cederberg. This painting is an amazing find with a story to be recounted here soon. We’re also showing a pair of sleek leather swivel chairs updated with low-profile styling, swanky barware, and shapely ceramics by acclaimed Seattle studio, KriKri. Also on view is amazing new op-art wooden furniture by Steve Lawler.

On the wearable art side, made-to-layer, hand-cut leather necklaces by artist Susan Connole have arrived. And I’m working on new jewelry designs (experiments in wood) for spring; in the meantime, you can find my work at the Tacoma Art Museum Store, and at SAM Shop at the Seattle Art Museum.

Speaking of TAM, in November, the museum unwrapped a very special gift, a world-class collection of Western art from German philanthropists, Erivan and Helga Haub and family. This major contribution to the cultural life of the region is housed in a new wing designed for it, a $15.5 million expansion by award-winning Seattle architect, Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig.

The Western art collection, ranked among the finest in the US, includes works by George Catlin, John Mix Stanley, Thomas Moran, Frederic Remington, and Georgia O’Keeffe. Contemporary Native American artists including William Acheff and Kevin Red Star will be represented, injecting an important historical dimension to this collection.

This is a huge development for Tacoma artsĀ  – stay tuned.
