Stonington 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 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. 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 as far away as Nantes, France.
Jason & Trevor Hunt: Bloodlines (Online Exhibition)
ONLINE EXHIBIT: In April we feature brothers Jason Hunt and Trevor Hunt, who hail from the famed artistic lineage of the Hunt family of Fort Rupert on Vancouver Island (BC). Many of the brothers’ family members–including father Stan Hunt–are renowned artists known for their incredible masks, panels, paddles, and drums, and these two continue that tradition with modern flair and tools. We look forward to seeing what kinds of spectacular Vancouver Island-style works will emerge for this joint show.
The Hope of Spring
Though the Stonington Gallery physical space will be closed until at least April 1st, we can still share the work of our fantastic artists with you! (We are also working from home, and reachable by email and phone during business hours.) We are thinking of you all and sending each of you our love and very best wishes.
As so many of our daily routines are interrupted, please find time to be outdoors and enjoy the early signs of spring. In the Northwest we are savoring our springtime rituals as nature responds to the lengthening days. The steelhead are returning to their rivers. The robins are in our parks and gardens. The Indian Plum blossoms are nourishing the Anna’s hummingbirds and native bees. The sun paints the woods a light-dappled green. Soon, the frogs will fill the night air with their beautiful chorus and herald one of Planet Earth’s most glorious events: springtime.
