Art Scene Seattle would like to introduce:
The Seattle Arts Coalition!
I would like to thank all of you who have visited Art Scene Seattle over the past few years for the monthly Art Fix, Calls for Art, info on art spaces, and more! Don't worry, we're not going anywhere; we just wanted to take a moment to introduce an exciting new non-profit organisation to Seattle's art scene. It's the brain child of me (your humble narrator, Braden Duncan of BC Duncan Design) and Rachel Setzer of Setzer Studio Arts. Art Scene Seattle and the Seattle Arts Coalition will be doing a lot of cross-promoting in the upcoming months for art events, exhibitions, Calls for Art, and opportunities for artists and the public to be involved and lend support to our amazing art community.
Please take a moment to check out the Coalition, and feel free to let me or Rachel know if you have any questions or suggestions. We're here as a resource for YOU, so we need to hear from local artists and art spaces to know how we can best help you. Thanks!
A little bit about the SAC...
The Seattle Arts
Coalition (SAC) is a non-profit organisation committed to providing
artists with necessary tools of the professional art trade and promoting
artist engagement in the Seattle community and beyond. We sponsor
events for artists and artisans including exhibitions, art fairs, and
forums. The SAC offers curating, installation and PR services, as well
as advice and questions answered to artists interested in showing and
selling their work in the Northwest.
Founded and directed by Seattle
artists and curators Braden Duncan and Rachel Setzer, the SAC is our chance to share with fellow
artists what we've learned in our quests to turn art making into a
career. We want art and the art making process to be more accessible,
available, and profitable for artists and their communities - not just
locally, but nationally and globally as well. Art has the ability to
direct and shift cultural perspective, and Seattle artists should be at
the forefront of the contemporary art movement. It starts here in
Seattle, as we encourage artists to become more active and involved in
their communities, and it spreads as we all do our part to pay it
forward. Please join us and help support your local art scene!
