Changes in the Art Scene – June Newsletter

July 6, 2023

After 30 years in the  gallery business we closed our retail location, in the fall of 2019. Our decision was a personal one, and a new smaller space was created as our office and viewing room.  A few months later and much to everyone’s surprise the pandemic enveloped us all in early 2020. Subsequently many friends in the visual art scene have also made changes.

Our changes have developed as we are now primarily working online (also with Artsy) and by phone. Please read further for notes on the next artist exhibit and mention of our new consignments.  Please also visit the numerous galleries and non-profit art spaces in the Seattle area.  In our longer interview with the Seattle Times we noted that art galleries are critically important for our visual existence. There are two recent articles* which focus on the changing Seattle art scene (see below).

We have had previous pop up exhibits, with many thanks to the Greg Kucera Gallery and Foster White Gallery.  This August we will host a new exhibit for Michael Kenna at the Harris Harvey Gallery. With a little help from our friends we have added visibility.

Taking Care: Collection Support Studio is organized by Dr. Ann Poulson, Curator of Collections.  A  wonderfully large sampling of Seattle’s Henry Art Gallery collection is currently on display through August 20. From the Henry website – Caring for the Henry’s permanent collection is an ongoing process—one that usually takes place behind closed doors. Pieces in the collection that are not on view are housed and cared for in a secure space with carefully-monitored environmental conditions that enables us to preserve the works for generations to come.
