Tacoma Has a New Muse and Winterfest

Along the ever growing and always changing street we call 6th Ave, there is a new Café. The Muse Café opened in October serving up food, coffee and good music. They host an open mic Tuesdays and Thursdays and have live music Fridays and Saturdays. Through the month of December they will also be hosting an
exhibition of Sarah McTernen photography. Thirteen photographic art pieces hang on their walls for your viewing and purchasing pleasure.
So if you’re in the neighborhood or can be, please stop by, have a cup of coffee and a sandwich or a piece of cake, enjoy some music and take in the scenery.
The Muse Café is open from 10am to 10pm Monday thru Wednesday and until midnight Thursday through Friday.

Project Photography Explained
I love taking the almost mundane objects in life and showing their spectacular side. One of the first pictures I took that showcases this idea is The Violin. It is not the most beautiful violin. It is not old or filled with character, but it was mine, and at the time of this picture, I had been playing it for seven years. It was meaningful to me, and in turn has become an important picture to other people.
Project Photography is taking the things in your life that you love, and through my eye and camera, turning them into photographic art for you. It is your chance to make the art on your walls personal and full of meaning.
Project photography blends the idea of art and portraiture, moving beyond just human subjects.
