Gallery B612 is located in the heart of SODO. Just two blocks south from the T-Mobile Stadium and Lumen Field, and two blocks north of Starbucks Headquarters.
About the Gallery:
Initially founded in mid 2020 under Prince and Fox, LLC, Gallery B612 aspires to be a gathering place for artists, dancers, fashion designers and creatives from all walks of life. To this date, the gallery has featured a Solo Exhibition from founder and curator, MiYoung Margolis and served as a gathering place and rehearsal space for MMDC and Dare to Dance.
Gallery B612 is a literary reference to Asteroid B612 in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s book The Little Prince. Gallery B612 is our “art planet,” our gallery and studio, in the Seattle SODO neighborhood.
We believe it’s important to provide space for artists to share their voice in a physical representation where others can view and discuss the pieces as well as mingle with each other. In our modern American world, there are less and less public spaces for people to spend their free time. Here, we will hope to provide safety and connection for the Seattle community.
Exhibition & Competition:
A portion of the the proceeds will be donated to a local charity supporting low income children. This is a Youth Art Competition with award show for each category of youth. This opportunity will help support young artists’ path toward the fine art world and prepare them for processing their work in galleries and build confidence. We will separate ages by three divisions. Each age group will have their own awards divisions as follow: 3rd grade – 5th grade, 6th – 8th grade, 9th – 12th grade.
Selected pieces are juried by the curators at Gallery B612.
