MUST SEE

Jini Dellaccio: Caught in the Act

(Through 7/11) Few artists made more of lucky happenstance than Dellaccio (1917–2014), who took up photography on a whim in California, followed her husband to Tacoma and ended up the preeminent portraitist of Northwest rockers (the Wailers, the Sonics). Into her 70s, she shot musicians performing in concert—locals and touring acts, from the Stones to the Beach Boys. Fantagraphics shows off a collection of her evocative black-and-white work. Times vary. Free. Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery, Georgetown, 1201 S Vale St.; 206.557.4910; fantagraphics.com
