SOTA grads' art on display at UW Tacoma

Main page content

Three graduates of Tacoma's School of the Arts will display their paintings, drawings and photographs at the UW Tacoma Gallery through Sept. 15.

The exhibit reflects the work of three very different artists who are pursuing careers in the field after graduating from the School of the Arts. The gallery, located at 1742 Pacific Ave., is open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 12 to 5 p.m. on Fridays.


Cassandra King explores and experiments with mixed-media portraits, layering flat spray-painted patterns in the background with the loose and lush brush strokes that are her trademark.

Alison Coffey uses photographs to examine sensitive environmental areas and faded buildings with fragmented and compartmentalized vision.

Dylan Betz turns portraits of famous authors such as Umberto Eco and Stephen King into topographical terrain.
