The Jack Straw New Media Gallery is a unique venue in Seattle where artists from various disciplines can present works in which sound is an integral or exclusive element. This program enables artists to experiment with audio and to develop new skills and ideas in a supportive setting. Up to four artists/teams are selected to receive up to 20 hours of free studio time with an engineer, which they may use to realize the sound component of their project, with training as needed. Artists’ new work is presented in our gallery in the following year. Gallery exhibitions include an opening reception, artist talk/workshop, podcast/interview posted on our web site, and other events. Additional family engagement programs may be developed with select installations.
