Peaks and Pints Proctor Presents: Proctor Art Gallery


Peaks and Pints Proctor Presents: Proctor Art Gallery

Let’s pair a Proctor District artistic holiday present with holiday dessert sours!

Trinda Love is the featured artist during the holiday season at Proctor Art Gallery.

Proctor Art Gallery

Sometimes the best galleries are not in big fancy buildings downtown but tucked away into awesome little spaces. This is exactly the case with Proctor Art Gallery in Tacoma’s Proctor District. Founded by Carolyn Burt and her husband Chuck Gourley in January 2009, purchased in 2016 by local jewelry designer and Proctor Art Gallery artist member Pamela Phelps, this gallery has an amazing variety of local art ranging from folk art to high-brow works. The gallery rotates their resident artists including oil painter and photographer Trinda Love during the holiday season. With a Bachelor of Arts in Literature from the University of Washington, and a Master of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington Tacoma campus, painter, photographer, videographer, seminar leader, spiritual healer, and Washington native Love has been exhibited in New York City, and in juried shows around the United States.  In addition, the Proctor Art Gallery has handcrafted artisan ornaments, glass snowflakes, ceramic ornaments, and charming felted ornaments.

Claim 52 Holiday Dessert Sours

In 2012, Mercy McDonald, Jeannine Parisi and Trevor Ross opened Claim 52 Brewing in West Eugene, Oregon. Named after a donation land claim number it refers to the original tract of land in Eugene settled by pioneer William Luckey in the late 1800s. Today, under the guidance of head brewer Bryce Fisher, Claim 52 specialize in European-style, super-small batch beers made in the Northwest tradition, as well as exceptional hazy IPAs, and crazy, heavily fruited dessert sours such as Stuffed Raspberry Gingerbread Cheesecake and Thicc Jolly AF Puree Gose conditioned on blackberry puree, sugar cookies, and vanilla.  Add these two delicious beers to artwork from Proctor Art Gallery for a spectacular gift.

Proctor District

Proctor is a boutique Tacoma neighborhood centered around North 26th Street and Proctor Street. It’s a small district packed with locally-owned and operated niche stores in which every detail — every window display, bushel of fresh produce or interior cheer — is carefully curated for customers. This year, the Proctor Business District dons candy cane stripes and white lights for their month-long “Meet Me At Proctor’s Peppermint Place” celebration. Peaks & Pints craft beer and cider bar, bottle shop and restaurant has called Proctor home for more than seven years. We’re proud to be a part of this wonderful, caring community.
