Spring is coming on at M+M!

Plants are sexy. Montage: JD Elquist

I (heart) spring! The sun is out a hair more reliably, change is in the air, and new friends are discovering the gallery. In case you’re a newby, Moss + Mineral is a design store in the heart of downtown Tacoma. We’re open Wednesday-Saturday, noon-5pm, and by appointment. Check out our first art exhibit of the spring season: “Drawings” by Michael Kaniecki. If you like the visceral power of charcoal drawing, don’t miss this show. “I find the deep richness of charcoal on paper seductive” for both artist and viewer, Kaniecki says. His gestural nudes simply knock us out. Show runs through May 31, 2014. (Read more here.)

Just arrived – fabulous hand-cut suede necklaces by Seattle artist, Susan Connole. Inspired by her research at the botanical gardens at the Ballard Locks, Connole creates modern garlands of specimens such as ginkgo and eucalyptus.

In the M+M plant studio we are busting out terrariums – especially since the News Tribune ran a big article about them in March (and the story has been syndicated from Austin to Miami, Detroit and beyond!). Cacti and succulents – and a new favorite, ferns – are arriving weekly, as well as mid-century modern art objects and furnishings, raw gem jewelry, and spring plantings. We’re a small shop with big ideas – check us out!
