We Are the Art!

For Immediate Release:

The Seattle Arts Coalition presents:

"We Are The Art"

A fundraiser to support artist involvement in the Seattle community

When & Where:
Krab Jab Studio
Saturday, 14 June from noon-9pm
(to coincide with the Georgetown Street Fair)

At the Event:
Art Faire featuring local vendors!
Live art!
Silent art auction!
And more!

Free and open to the public!

Our goal:
We have non-profit status in WA State, but we still need the 501(c)3 stamp of approval from the federal government. It costs money to file the paperwork, but once we have it, all donations to the Coalition will be tax deductible, and we'll have more options available to help local artists achieve their professional art goals. All fundraiser proceeds will go toward our 501(c)3 filing and sponsoring our upcoming art events!

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.

Directed by Seattle artists and curators Braden Duncan of BC Duncan Design and Rachel Setzer of Setzer Studio Arts, 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!

The Seattle Arts Coalition would like to thank Krab Jab Studio for generously donating their art space to us for the evening!
