ArtsWest Gallery

ArtsWest’s gallery is a generously-sized, C-shaped exhibition space [the open space in the “C” is ArtsWest’s theatre] that features work by contemporary artists from the Pacific Northwest region.The exhibitions, usually including two to four artists, run for approximately seven weeks each.

Informal, conversational artist talks are featured at each show’s reception. Each artist in the exhibition speaks briefly about their work and visitors have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in conversation. Both lively and informational, the talks give visitors a chance to meet the artists and consider the intersection of the work with contemporary issues.

After submitting their work during our annual call-to-artists, artists are selected to show in the gallery by a panel of three Seattle-based curators and artists along with the gallery director. The panel for the 2014-15 season included Susanna Bluhm (ArtsWest gallery director), Gail Gibson (director of G. Gibson gallery in Pioneer Square), Susie Lee (artist), and Matthew Offenbacher (artist, curator, writer).

We are not currently accepting artist submissions. Artists interested in showing their work at ArtsWest please learn more about our submissions process here.
