Skyward: A Group Exhibit on the Realms Above

We can all agree it has been a very challenging year on Planet Earth! So for our last exhibit of 2020, we thought it would be comforting and wise to look skyward to our celestial neighbors for inspiration. The sun, moon, planets and cosmos have stirred our imaginations and dreams since humans first looked up. We invite you to join us on this remarkable journey of looking skyward and to marvel at the world above us.

As we round the corner towards the winter solstice, our days will grow longer and–we hope–brighter. Step outside your normal routine, look up into the heavens and find that perspective and peace that will carry you into the New Year. Natural law tells us that the sun will rise tomorrow; be that light to those around you!

We hope in these pieces you will find a beautiful ending to a difficult year.

Welcome to Stonington Gallery

HomeStonington Gallery exhibits an exciting collection of contemporary masterworks from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Serving Seattle since 1979, the gallery is respected for the depth and quality of its collection, exceptional service and knowledgeable staff. For visitors wishing to understand the character of Seattle and the wider Northwest Coast, our gallery is a rich cultural introduction, and proof of the vibrant, living Indigenous cultures and artists of our region. Our mission is to provide the ideal environment for the presentation, enjoyment and understanding of premier contemporary art of the Pacific Northwest Coast and Alaska, and to foster greater appreciation for these artforms and the artists who make them. Our commitment to educating the public and advancing the appreciation of Northwest Coast art has led us to exhibit at museums, convention centers, government buildings, SeaTac airport, the Seattle Aquarium, art fairs, and Nantes, France.

The gallery staff acknowledges that the gallery and larger city of Seattle occupies unceded Duwamish lands.
