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 concurrently with our mainstage productions.

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.

A call for art will be held sometime in 2017. Information will be posted here.

Exploration and Manipulation

Apr 20 – May 14 2017


Exploration and Manipulation is a sampling of student work from Chief Sealth International & West Seattle High Schools. Working closely with art instructors Katie Elm, Michelle Sloan and Carolyn Autenrieth, we are incredibly proud to showcase this diverse collection of work from these talented young artists.

As Katie and Michelle point out in their introduction for the exhibit, several of the student artworks “deal with social issues that may be difficult to look at, but are important issues that society deals with every day.”

Meet the artists! Please join us on Friday, April 27 at 5:30pm for a free reception with the artists and instructors.
