Art Call for Grand Re-Opening Seattle Gallery / Calls & Submissions
April 9, 2023
Organization Name: Gallery B612
Organization Location: Seattle, WA
Type: Calls & Submissions
Gallery: Initially founded in mid 2020 under Prince and Fox, LLC, Gallery B612 aspires to be a gathering place for artists, dancers, fashion designers and creatives from all walks of life. To this date, the gallery has featured a Solo Exhibition from founder and curator, MiYoung Margolis and served as a gathering place and rehearsal space for MMDC and Dare to Dance.
Gallery B612 is a literary reference to Asteroid B612 in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s book The Little Prince. Gallery B612 is our “art planet,” our gallery and studio, in the Seattle SODO neighborhood.
We believe it’s important to provide space for artists to share their voice in a physical representation where others can view and discuss the pieces as well as mingle with each other. In our modern American world, there are less and less public spaces for people to spend their free time. Here, we will hope to provide safety and connection for the Seattle community.
Exhibitions: During the pandemic, we were able to showcase solo works, but now we would like to branch out to more local and national art and grow our community through the Grand Re-Opening of 2023. Featured artists are invited and encouraged to personally attend receptions.
