LENGTH OF EXHIBITS: Exhibits run concurrently with our theater production dates – ensuring that both our visual art and theater performances play to clean spaces and maximum audiences. The length of these exhibits vary between 4-5 weeks in length.
SIZE RESTRICTIONS: We do not restrict the size of the artwork as long as it can be safely displayed.
GALLERY: Located inside ArtsWest, 4711 California Ave. SW, Seattle WA, our Gallery consists of 100 linear feet in a C-shaped configuration. Hours: Thursdays and Fridays from 4-7PM and Sundays from 11AM to 4PM.
We are a theatre and gallery in West Seattle. Our goal is to marry what is on stage and what is in the gallery to allow our community to experience the themes, ideas, and cultural identities through 2 mediums: visual art & performance. This is not to say that the visual art should draw direct parallels to the theatrical productions, but inherently compliments it through the programming of the gallery.
This season we look at dreams through 5 unique lenses. “Dream big!” “Dare to dream!” “If you can dream it you can do it!” Pithy and joyous quotes inspiring us to pursue our dreams have resounded across space and time – but have you ever tried it? It can be a difficult path, especially when the world seems to have other plans for you. Dreaming big takes courage, curiosity, and imagination – but it often takes support from the outside world as well. We are asking, “What would it take to create a world in which everyone is free to pursue a dream?”
We are able to accommodate all wall-mounted visual art & small space for ceramics and sculpture. No video installations.
DELIVERY & PICK-UP: Artwork must be hand-delivered and picked up on a date and time that is coordinated with our Gallery Director. There is very limited storage on site. The date and time of installation is flexible.
ART SALES: Contact information of interested buyers will be provided directly to artists to complete purchase transactions. No sales commission is charged and ArtsWest is not a 3rd party in the sales of art.
LIABILITY: Please be advised that every reasonable precaution will be taken during the receiving, installation, exhibition and return of your artwork but ArtsWest employees, volunteers and patrons do not assume responsibility for loss or damage that might be incurred during this process. All work needs to be of substantial enough nature to withstand these procedures. We encourage each artist to carry their own insurance and to be involved in installation/de-installation.
DEADLINE: July 14th, 2023.
Artists will be notified as soon as decisions are made.
