Three new shows by local artists are up this weekend in alternative venues: a Gig Harbor café, the Puyallup City Hall and Tacoma municipal buildings.

Painter Donna Carver, recently arrived in Gig Harbor from California, is opening “A Moment in Time” at Cutters Point Uptown in Gig Harbor. Carver portrays an emotional response to the rich colors of Pacific seascapes. She will be at an artist reception 4-7 p.m. June 4, and her work will be up through July 31 during café hours. 4735 Point Fosdick Dr. NW #400, Gig Harbor. 253-509-0754, www.cutterspointuptown.com, www.donnacarver.com

Local artists Gail Janes and Nola Tresslar are showing at the Puyallup City Hall during normal business hours through August 20. Their work ranges from acrylics and mixed media through prints, sumi and Zen art. Puyallup City Hall, 333 S. Meridian, Puyallup. nola.sumi.org, www.cityofpuyallup.org

And City of Tacoma employees and their families get the chance to show art during the annual City art exhibit. Sponsored by the National Arts Program, the exhibit includes 91 artists showing 148 works in a variety of media. The free exhibit is up during normal business hours June 7-Sept. 3 at both the Tacoma Municipal Building, 747 Market St., Tacoma; and Tacoma Public Utilities, 3628 S. 35th St., Tacoma. An awards reception will be held 5:30 p.m. June 10.

“It’s wonderful to hear our employees express both the pride that they have in their own creative talents, and the amazement they feel in discovering the talents of their coworkers,” said Amy McBride, Tacoma Arts Administrator. “This program really demonstrates that everyone has that innate need to create and to participate in the arts.”
