‘Invisible Ink’ at Feast

At Feast Arts Center, Olympia interdisciplinary artist Anne de Marcken explores ideas of invisibility and privilege in “Invisible Ink.” Writing in lemon juice on butcher paper that gallery viewers have to iron out, de Marcken transcribes both support and attacks on fellow artist Natasha Marin during her “Reparations” project, an account of how whiteness protects from awareness and accountability.

Noon-5 p.m. Saturdays and by appointment. Free. Feast Arts Center, 1402 S. 11th St., Tacoma. feastarts.com.

Trumpet sounds at Second City Chamber

You’ve probably never heard a trumpet sound quite like this. Trumpeter Zachary Lyman and pianist Oksana Ezhokina, faculty at Pacific Lutheran University, use the Second City Chamber Series’ spotlight concert to put the trumpet through some very contemporary paces, including electronics and a “Frankenstein” concerto assembled from old-chestnut works by Hummel, Haydn and Neruda.

4 p.m. Sunday. $25 adults; $23 seniors, military; $10 students; free for 18 and younger. First Lutheran Church, 524 N. I St., Tacoma. 253-572-TUNE, scchamberseries.org.
