Today I would like to share the art galleries at Tacoma Art Museum. We visited this museum last fall. Though I am not an art lover we still decided to visit this museum. It was a rainy weekend and we had to do some activity and head outdoors.
We drove to Tacoma and pulled in at the parking lot at the base of the museum. There are different galleries in the museum and we bought our tickets and started to explore. They allow photography without using flash.
As we walked towards the galleries this bison painting on the wall attracted my attention. There is a saddle next to it to sit and click pictures with the bison. I got one mine too.
There are huge glass balls at one side of the passage.
This huge dog is placed at the entrance of one of the galleries. It is made out of cardboard and some kind of nails.
Art at display
This painting is titled as ‘Spanish Couple.’ More details about the art and artist is shared.
Another art creation
Stone Lithography; cut paper sculpture by artist ‘Tyna Ontko’.
Woodcut print on paper with graphite, ink, chalk and collaged cut paper by artist ‘Bryan Putnam.’
The museum had few impressive pieces of jewellery. Seed beads and pewter by artist ‘Joyce J. Scott
The museum also holds Dale Chihuly’s exhibit as he hails from Tacoma. Chihuly is well known here for his unique art with blown glass.
Carmine and White Flower Set by artist Dale Chihuly.
His art is featured in their permanent collection.
More of Chihuly’s art.
This was perhaps the best gallery at the museum.
We moved towards the modern art gallery.
The museum has a cafe and a store. The view from the top floor is beautiful. As this is located in Tacoma downtown we could have a glance of the Union Station from the glass window.
The rain had stopped and the Museum of Glass and Mt. Rainier was visible in the distant. Overall it is a nice museum with wide array of art.
