Another feather in the hat for the artsy neighborhood of Pioneer Square, just South of downtown, this gallery explores the culminating local art culture. Showcasing contemporary works in form of paintings, drawings, sculptures, light based works, wax art, chocolate art, interactive media and sound installations, this gallery has already created a name for itself locally and nationally. And the fact that this non-profit organization is owned and operated by a group of local artists (members) shows how progressive the burgeoning art is today.
A stone's throw from the Seattle Art Museum, this bright gallery displays a little bit of everything in its theatrical space, vivid paintings, sculptures, photographs, pottery and mixed-media works.
