About the Artist

Ari Glass (Seattle) is a painter and designer born and raised in Seattle. His paintings reveal personal narratives inpsired by historical and fictional concepts of kings, queens and kingdoms, and deal with concepts such as sovereignty and independence.  His intention is to showcase the deep, personal and positive effect that art and art history had on him while growing up in the Rainier Valley district of Seattle. 

Ari received 2015 GAP funding to help with the production of his debut solo exhibition: "The Sun is Made of Gold," an immersive gallery environment involving painting, video projection, vitrine installation and custom framing that places the viewer in "a new world." The exhibition is set to take place in December or early 2016 at the 2312 Gallery.
