About Gage Academy of Art
For nearly 30 years Gage Academy of Art, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has been serving the community with inspired programs and events for artists of all ages and abilities. Unapologetically independent and fiercely committed to excellence, Gage Academy believes that artists are made, not born, and offers instruction in the principles of drawing, painting and sculpting delivered by brilliant teaching artists. The school has two campuses in Capitol Hill and Georgetown and offers flexible class schedules with a variety of programs ranging from classes, lectures and workshops to full-time study. Featuring year-round adult programs in drawing, painting and sculpting, Gage is also home to public art events, lectures, youth programming, tours and exhibitions.
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.
