An ONLINE exhibition
Friday, November 26th through Friday, December 24th
Tis’ the season, and our annual exhibition is just around the corner!
Just like everything else this past year, it’s going to look a bit different...
At Gage Academy of Art, we envision a world where the visual arts are valued as a vital human endeavor. This very sentiment has been challenged in ways never before experienced in history these past two years. As a beacon in Seattle, we strive to create a community where all feel safe to continue on an artistic path & creative journey. Since September, we have seen art take a backseat to our brothers and sisters from Afghanistan who have arrived in Seattle without the basic necessities to even survive. As artists, educators, and instructors, it is our duty to do whatever we can to support our hundreds of neighbors arriving in Seattle due to the crisis in Afghanistan.
This year's show will be focused on giving back to not only our community of artists, but our larger global community living locally in Seattle. Instead of the usual 70% commission that artists receive from selling work at Gage, we are offering artists a 60% commission for this show specifically. The 40% that Gage takes will be fully donated to the Afghan Refugees Cause:
-20% as a direct cash donation to World Relief and Jewish Family Service
-20% to purchase essential needs from the Amazon wish list that JFS put together. Each person that purchases a piece of art can also contribute a donation or essential need directly.
Gage calls Seattle home so this year, as the holidays are upon us and our annual small works sale once again comes alive, with your help, we are using this as an opportunity to give back through art!
ALL ARTWORK IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE! If you are interested in any of the pieces, please contact Events & Exhibitions Manager, Erica LeSuer, at email@example.com, and she will assist in all sales.

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
