Neighbor Gary is Sent from Somewhere Else

Tacoma's B&I is Somewhere Else all right...

Tacoma’s B&I is Somewhere Else all right…

Sometimes the guy who lives across the hall from your first apartment likes to take photographs. And sometimes, almost 14 years later, that same guy has an art gallery exhibiting his photographs.

At least that’s the case with me and Carrie, and our across-the-hall Neighbor Gary “Terrapin” Lappier, whose exhibit is entitled Sent from Somewhere Else. Here’s what he says about it:

I received a camera for my fifth birthday, which is around the same time I made my first visit to the B&I. It was a technicolor buzz full of goodies and amazements. A crown jewel in a city full of promise named Tacoma. Since a young age I had fantasized about documenting this unique place and the variety found within. As I grew and developed my craft, the B&I aged and declined. Sent from Somewhere Else is the photographic result of this exploration.

We’re fortunate enough to own several Gary Lappier originals that adorn the walls of our house:

He doesn’t live across the hall from us anymore. But he does live in a house only about three blocks away from ours. So we’re super excited to head to Fulcrum Gallery in Tacoma this Friday night for the Opening Reception of his exhibit. SO CAN YOU!
