Your Complete Guide to Seattle Art Galleries that Are Now Open to Visit

July 16, 2020

As The Stranger's resident art critic Jasmyne Keimig recently relayed, galleries across the city are quietly reopening their doors for limited-capacity viewing, in part due to the low traffic that comes through galleries as opposed to museums and stores. "Art galleries can support social distancing far more easily as we have open floor plans, allowing plenty of space for the few visitors we may have at any moment," reads a letter to Governor Jay Inslee organized by Traver Gallery's Sarah Traver. We've listed the art spaces that are back in business during regular hours and by appointment below, along with the shows that are currently on view, from Deborah Butterfield's Sculpture at Greg Kucera Gallery to Lauren Iida's 32 Aspects of Daily Life at ArtXchange—plus a few virtual exhibitions. If you do decide to visit, don't forget to wear a mask and to keep your distance from others.
