Member Opening Party for “GATHER: 27 Years of Hilltop Artists”

Here are some highlights from the opening party of GATHER: 27 Years of Hilltop Artists–featuring a pop-up shop from eTc Tacoma and appearances from the exhibition’s curator Trenton Quicho, TAM executive director David Setford, Hilltop Artists executive director Dr. Kimberly Keith, and Tacoma mayor Victoria Woodards.

Representing nearly 30 years of youth development and creative cultivation, GATHER includes work from 21 Hilltop Artists alumni with artistic practices rooted in the Tacoma community. Featuring a variety of contemporary glass artworks from vessels and sculptures to neon and installations, as well as paintings and mixed media, GATHER highlights the outcomes and reach of the Hilltop Artists program while shining a light on opportunity gaps faced by these artists, many of whom have not yet been included in exhibitions on this scale.
