My First Solo Art Show in Seattle

My Art Show Opening Last Week

My art show opening at The Virginia Inn last Thursday was part of the Pike Place Market and Belltown Artwalks. It’s entitled The Window Series — Inspiration for the Imagination. This iconic location has a history of supporting Seattle artists by providing a beautiful venue for the works and taking a percentage that is half of what galleries take.

My First Solo Art Show in Seattle

Whereas my works have been shown in San Francisco, Miami, and New York, this was my first solo art show in Seattle. I had put together this body of work specifically to find a location to show my art and almost right away The Virginia Inn booked my work for the height of the tourist season. I couldn’t be happier than to be shown at The Virginia Inn. Patrice, one of the owners, is a delight to work with and he did a wonderful job hanging the show. If you are down near Pike Place Market in Seattle, drop in to see what’s on display. Patrice is also the curator and he has a wonderful eye.

The opening was very well attended. In fact the bartender said, “THIS is the way art show openings are supposed to be!”

I’m so very grateful to all of my friends who showed up to help me launch this endeavor. The paintings will be up for 2 months. They will be taken down after Labor Day weekend.

As a funny coincidence, I had painted Seattle Sunset (below) in the 80s. It features The Virginia Inn’s sign. Now my works are on display there. I couldn’t be more thrilled!
