In Support of Artists: The Evolution of Seattle Exhibition Spaces
*ONLINE RESERVATIONS HAVE ENDED. THERE WILL BE SPOTS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR. SEE YOU THERE!*
A panel discussion addressing the current state of galleries in Seattle, digging deeper into ideas that began at a Town Hall discussion in November. Hosted by Greg Kucera at Greg Kucera Gallery. Co-hosted by Sharon Arnold of Bridge Productions and Gail Gibson of G. Gibson Gallery.
Moderated by Beth Sellars, the panel will explore the different models for the art gallery, how they operate and facilitate artist careers, and what the future may bring to Seattle. Guest panelists represent a broad range of models that best illustrate the interlocking parts of the Seattle art community now:
Julia Greenway | Interstitial
James Harris | James Harris Gallery
Dawna Holloway | studio e
Brendan Kiley | Seattle Times
S. Surface | The Alice
Tariqa Waters | Martyr Sauce
Robert Yoder | SEASON
We imagine this event as part of a series we will convene on the arts community in Seattle. We are hopeful that this discussion will lead to a realization of the richness and diversity of the visual art community at this moment. There are a great many show spaces in Seattle now, at least 50 by our recent informal survey. We also recognize that the scene here is shifting a bit. Its becoming apparent that galleries dont have to be in the downtown core as they generally have been in the past.
Georgetown's development as an arts district brings a host of new ideas and models to the gallery world. Not all of these models are open during predictable daytime hours, five or six days a week. As several prominent galleries have closed or gone private in recent years, we are also reminded that our business is perhaps more fragile than ever before and we need to take steps to insure that artists have places to physically show their work. We need to preserve space where critical assessment can occur, and places where artists can convene to share ideas and experiences.
$5 suggested donation per person. Donations will go to Artist Trust. We'll be equipped to take cash and credit card donations at the door as well. Wine, beer, and other refreshments will be available by suggested donation, cash or card accepted.
