Summer In Seattle Exhibition in SODO / Calls & Submissions

Organization Name: Gallery B612
Organization Location: Seattle, WA
Type: Calls & Submissions
Fee: $25 +
Call Type: Exhibition
Gallery B612 is located in the heart of SODO. Just two blocks south from the T-Mobile Stadium and Lumen Field, and two blocks north of Starbucks Headquarters.
About 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.
During the pandemic, we were able to showcase solo works, but now we would like to branch out to more local and national art. We recently had ‘Grand Re-Opening Artist Reception’ and had a great turn out of over 150 guests coming to see 50+ artworks and 5 live performers. Featured artists are invited and encouraged to personally attend receptions and invite friends.
