Gage Perspectives is a series of lectures and artist talks that represent Gage's commitment to offer our community the opportunity to engage with contemporary artists, art historians, and scholars on the subject of art, life, and the artistic practice. Gage Perspectives is comprised of three different series:
New Sensibilities, In Partnership with Town Hall Seattle: Curated by Founding Co-Director Gary Faigin, this series is dedicated to exploring the work of contemporary artists who are responding through their artistic practice to cultural, political, and aesthetic transformations in the fabric of our society.
Art History Lecture Series: Gage’s Atelier Directors offer an in-depth reflection on artistic trends, shifts, and narratives through the lens of art history.
Technique Lecture Series: Led by Atelier Directors Mike Magrath and Geoff Flack, this series covers a wide range of principles and techniques ranging from the construction of believable space in a drawing or painting, to the basic architecture of the human body. These types of talks are usually available only to Atelier students, but in this series, the Directors' technical expertise is available to all.
New Sensibilities @ Town Hall: $5 for non-members, free to Gage members.
Art History Lecture Series: Free to everyone.
Instructional Lecture series: Sliding Scale.

Gage Academy of Art acknowledges the Coast Salish Peoples as the original inhabitants of this area and connecting waterways. We understand the land that Gage occupies is unceded territory and that today many Indigenous peoples live here and without their stewardship, we would not have access to this space. We honor the Coast Salish Peoples’ sovereignty, rights to self-determination, culture and ways of life. Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have called this territory their sacred land. We commit to learning, educating others and repairing the legacy of historically harmful relationships between non-Native and Native peoples in King County. In doing so, we will be honest, and recognize the experiences of Native peoples to include genocide, forced relocation, forced assimilation, and land theft. We also acknowledge Native peoples are survivors, present in today’s world, thriving. We encourage everyone here today to ask themselves: what can I do to support Indigenous communities?
In an effort to be transparent, Gage is contemplating this call to action and re-working how to best support Indigenous communities.
