ArtXchange Gallery is a contemporary art gallery that inspires exploration, encourages global perspectives and creates an exchange of ideas through art. We exhibit art that reflects the diversity of influences shaping the Seattle community and contemporary global culture.
Founded in 1995, ArtXchange Gallery has evolved from an online gallery to a pop-up showroom and now to our current 2000+ square foot gallery in Pioneer Square. The gallery features rotating exhibitions, as well as creative events including artist workshops, poetry readings and dance performances.
Gallery director Cora Edmonds’ international background, combined with her love of art, travel, and photography, influenced her to establish ArtXchange Gallery in 1995 to raise cultural awareness, exhibit artists from around the world and promote global understanding through art. Cora is the co-founder of Namaste Children’s Fund, a non-profit organization that supports education for girls in rural Nepal.
Lauren received her Master’s degree in Arts Leadership from Seattle University. In addition to 14+ years with ArtXchange Gallery, other projects include exhibitions and events with Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, Arts & Social Change Partnership, Bellevue Arts Museum and Columbia City Gallery. She is on the board of La Sala: Latino/a Artist Network and Mount Baker Neighborhood Center for the Arts.
Summer is a Northwest native and deeply connected to Seattle’s creative community having spent 10+ years working in the arts. With a passion for social issues, Summer combines her love for art with her desire to make a positive impact by supporting working artists and fostering an inclusive environment where all feel welcome.
If you would like to show us your work, the gallery asks for digital submissions to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send 5-8 digital images of recent work or a link to your website. Additionally, please send your artist bio/cv and a statement of why ArtXchange Gallery is a fit for your work. We cannot accept mailed materials or walk-in submissions.
ArtXchange Gallery’s exhibition schedule is usually set up to 2 years ahead of time. While all submissions will be viewed, only artists being considered for future opportunities will be contacted.
