Are you curious about what we do at Artist Trust? Don’t miss your chance to talk one-on-one with an Artist Trust advocate at this year’s Seattle Art Fair!

Artist Trust is a proud Cultural Partner of the Seattle Art Fair. We are honored and extremely thankful to have been named the Beneficiary Partner for the inaugural event in 2015, which funded our Grants for Artist Projects (GAP) awards that year.

The third edition of Seattle’s largest annual art event opens to the public today, August 4 at 11 AM. Be sure to visit our Cultural Partners booth, located near the lobby of the theater. Our team of dedicated staff, interns, and volunteers are happy to answer any questions that you have about our annual grants, artist support programs, volunteer opportunities, and membership program.

We are offering Artist Trust friends and supporters a 20% discount on Seattle Art Fair tickets including single-day tickets and three-day tickets. This discount is only redeemable online. Purchase tickets now.

Many exhibitions and arts events are being held during this exciting weekend. Just a few minutes away from CenturyLink is King Street Station. The recently transformed space is hosting BorderLands, an exhibition organized by the Office of Arts & Culture. BorderLands explores the ideas of belonging and resistance through 2-D and 3-D works. Artist Trust grant recipients featured in the exhibition are Ryan Feddersen, Satpreet Kahlon, and Carina A. del Rosario

Also presented by the Office of Arts & Culture is And She Persisted: Voices of Women Artists, which features 38 pieces by female-identified artists from the City’s portable works collection. Artist Trust awardees Humaira Abid, Ross Palmer Beecher, and Yuki Nakamura are among the list of talented artists selected “who challenge assumptions, take risks and break barriers to create objects of incredible beauty and depth.” View more details at www.seattle.gov/arts/borderlands
