Linda James has been a visual artist for over 40 years. Over that time, she has applied her talents to graphic design, fiber art, and painting. James received her BFA in painting from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1971. After co-owning a weaving studio in the late 70s, she devoted time to raising a family and studying medical herbalism in the Northeast. A move to Seattle brought her focus back to painting in 2009. She now commits all of her time to painting and teaching watercolor as a vehicle for personal expression.

“I took three watercolor classes at Gage (with Linda James, Stephen Reddy, and Tom Hoffmann) and all have been fantastic.”

— Antonella Pavese

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs

Gage Academy of Art is committed to social justice in a diverse democracy
