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.

Spotlight On: Frogs
An Online Exhibition
We’re welcoming summer with a celebration of our amphibian friends, frogs! The state of Washington has ten indigenous species of frog, including the bullfrog, Pacific chorus frog, Northern leopard frog, cascades frog, and Oregon spotted frog. (I guess you could say we’re hopping.)
Amongst the indigenous peoples of the Northwest, the Frog was often a symbol of prosperity and wealth, and its penchant for singing or chirping leads to many myths about why it’s sounding off. Frog was said to have warned humans of impending danger, and indeed, we know that frogs are indicator species of an ecosystem’s overall health.
SeaTac Airport Rotating Exhibition
Stonington Gallery is bringing the finest contemporary Northwest Coast art to visitors from around the world at SeaTac airport! This ongoing exhibition in partnership with the Port of Seattle is a rotating spotlight on the diverse art styles, media and viewpoints of contemporary artists of the Coast. We are honored to share works with locals and visitors by regional luminaries including Preston Singletary (Tlingit), Dan Friday (Lummi), Raven Skyriver (Tlingit), Robert Davidson (Haida), Thomas Stream (Sun’aq Aleut), Lillian Pitt (Wasco/Warm Springs/Yakama), Shaun Peterson-Qwalsius (Puyallup) and more.
All works in the exhibition are for sale through Stonington Gallery. Please call 206.405.4040 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries.
The exhibit is located at the Gina Marie Lindsay Arrivals Hall at the South end of the Main Terminal, on the baggage claim level. In layman’s terms, it is the large atrium with the suspended airplanes in the waiting area of the Arrivals section.
The gallery will be closed this Wednesday, July 4th, in observance of Independence Day. We will be back open with normal hours on Thursday, and will open Hib Sabin’s solo exhibition on Thursday evening from 6-8pm.
The gallery will be closed on Monday, May 28th in observance of Memorial Day. We hope you have a beautiful day, and we’ll see you Tuesday at normal opening hours. Wolf Brothers by Shaun Peterson – Qwalsius (Puyallup/Tulalip) 22.75″h x 22″w
