To say that our customers have been missing Alki artist Patri O'connor since she moved away would be an understatement. Please join us as we welcome Patri & Oscar back to Seattle for an all too short visit from Chile!
Patri will be bringing several of her masterpieces from both Chile and paintings of the Pacific Northwest with her, and we can't wait to see them!
Please join us for this party all about Patri!
For the Month of July, the gallery will offer a colorful group show of 8 of our local artists and will be specially featuring Chilean artist Patri O'Connor!
Patri will be showcasing some of her trademark depictions of Alki Beach reminiscent of her time here in Seattle from 2008-2015. She will also be bringing works with her depicting her new life in her homeland of Chile...it will be a fascinating artistic juxtaposition!
Artist Michael Birawer will also be in town with a new original! (can't wait to see it) and will be available to sign prints!
Please join us for a night of viewing new art & mingling with the artists!
Please join us for a beautiful night of music. Jared Mitchell’s music is an infectious blend of smooth pop and vibe-y Americana.
It's an informal 2 hour event - Show up around 6pm and enjoy a glass of wine with us, meet the musician, and then sit back and enjoy a long set of beautiful music, followed by a bit more socializing with the artists, until 8pm.
Such a nice way to hear live local music!
Enjoy an informal meet & greet with local artist Uyen Tran-Gjerde and view her incredible abstracted figurative paintings. Uyen creates a world where dream and reality converge. Her art expresses a sense of joy, tranquility, and mystery. This is an exhibit that you don't want to miss!

This will be a great opportunity to visit with one of our favorite artists; local plein air painter Robin Weiss & to see his new featured exhibit.
Robin will be starting & finishing a small painting in the gallery during the day, so you can watch him paint on site...whenever we do this in store, the piece usually gets purchased right off the easel!
If you are a prior collector, do stop in - it is always a thrill for the artist to meet their collectors!
Join us for a little 'Happy Hour' at the gallery and say hello to artist Michael Birawer while he is in town!
Michael will be here to welcome his art fans & collectors, and sign prints for those who buy new ones or bring in past purchases!
Remember that you can park with the Alexis Hotel valet for a reduced fee when visiting the gallery - so parking Downtown just got a whole lot easier!
Reggie Garrett & the Snake Oil Peddlers travel and perform regularly as an acoustic trio. The result is a musical blend that has excited and touched audiences throughout the Northwest.
Please join us for a glass of wine & an informal 'Living Room Concert' style show with this great trio and meet the musicians.
This Month's featured artist is plein air oil painter Robin Weiss! Robin captures the city with just the right mixture of precision mixed with magic!

We love our intimate concerts in the gallery! This month we are proud to host the 'alternative soul' of locally acclaimed singer songwriter Whitney Mongé!
Whitney learned to capture the power of authenticity while honing her skills as a street performer. Raised with rhythm and blues in her blood, but while growing up in the Pacific Northwest, her music was heavily influenced by the rock scene of the 90’s coining her own genre, Alternative Soul.
Please join us for an informal evening of socializing & great music with this amazing local talent!
Light refreshments served.
Join us for the 'First Thursday Artwalk' on March 1st from 5-8 PM.
