Tonight at The Swiss, a new artist will enter the Tacoma arts scene. Paula Jacobson will have her first-ever art show. While this is her first public showing, Jacobson is hardly new to the unique works she creates - an intriguing combination of photography, paper and metal.

"The background is photography, which I've taken, and I embellish it," she says. "Everything I use to embellish are circles, parts of circles and arcs of circles because circles are eternal and infinite and beyond boundaries."

Many moons ago, she began doing her circles as color studies, but then set them aside. After being inspired by the documentary Herb & Dorothy, she returned to her circles, later decided to add in her own photography ... and then a love of metalwork led her to mount the finished pieces onto stainless steel plates.

The result? Awesomeness.

While there isn't a formal presentation tonight, Jacobson will be at The Swiss, most likely surrounded by friends and family. Grab a beer, or one of Monkey's Manhattans, an order of nachos, kick back and ponder the circles.

THE SWISS, FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 5 P.M., 1904 JEFFERSON AVE., TACOMA, 253.572.2821
