MARCH 17-JUNE 10

The Tacoma Art Museum (1701 Pacific Ave., Tacoma) presents the groundbreaking exhibit, 'Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,' that debuted at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in 2010 and is the first major exhibition to address the question of how gender identity and sexual orientation have shaped the creation of modern American portraiture. 'Hide/Seek' offers an unprecedented survey of nearly 150 years of American art and includes more than 100 works by masters including Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent, Georgia O'Keefe, Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and more. The exhibit was co-curated by noted Gay historian, Jonathan Katz, and Smithsonian curator, David Ward.

The exhibit will include special events and guest lectures, including talks by the curators, and a talk by Seattle art dealer and art historian, David Martin, on March 24, at 1 p.m., on Gay Northwest Artists in the Early 20th Century. For more information on the exhibit and special events, call 253-272-4258 or visit www.tacomaartmuseum.org.

TACOMA ART MUSEUM - 'THE LAVENDER PALETTE: GAY NORTHWEST ARTISTS IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY'
On Saturday, March 24, at 1 p.m., at the Tacoma Art Museum (1701 Pacific Ave., Tacoma), David Martin, art historian and co-owner of Martin-Zambito Fine Art, presents a lecture 'The Lavender Palette: Gay Northwest Artists in the Early 20th Century,' in conjunction with Tacoma Art Museum's 'Hide/Seek' exhibition.

The reputations of many Gay artists have suffered due to the lack of extant material, which is often destroyed by embarrassed family members or friends after their deaths. Lecturer David Martin has done extensive investigation into this subject over the past 20 years and, in this lecture, he shines a lens on Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual artists who were active in Washington State before 1960. Although these artists achieved local and even national recognition during their lifetime, their personal lives have rarely, if ever, been discussed, and most of the Gay-oriented works by these artists that Martin will reveal have never before been seen by the public.

Cost of the lecture is $15 general, $10 members, $5 students and includes museum admission. For more info, call 253-272-4258 or visit www.TacomaArtMuseum.org.
