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
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
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!
