We’re thrilled to offer our guests and patrons a 2019 gallery year filled with fabulous solo and group shows in our Koch Gallery and Fong-Wheeler Atrium. We also feature intimate solo pop-up shows in our Joy and Chai Mann Kiosk to showcase smaller works at accessible price points.
While the art in our galleries come from artists up and down the Pacific Northwest, our direction, curation, and display are rooted in Vashon. The 2019 shows were juried by a group of dedicated and enthusiastic Vashon artists and art lovers. Islanders have lent us their deep expertise and love of the arts to help curate individual shows. Talented gallery pros have signed on to help us hang these wonderful shows.
We encourage all our gallery visitors to bring their sketchbooks, blank books, or notepads. Come on opening night, but by all means come back when you can spend time writing a verse, doing a sketch, or just sitting quietly with the art.
Gordon R Barnett's collection of 200 unique bells will be ringing in all their glory in the VCA Gift Shop. Vashon MakerSpace a place where islanders can create, learn and share their art, will be represented by a diverse exhibition of ten (10) artists.
Solo shows featuring photography, oil paintings, recycled materials and watercolor comprise this collection of artists: Christopher Allen, Jo Robinson, Karlista Rickerson, Kate Munson and Lenard Yen. They are joined by a group of plein air artist who painted the gardens featured in the 2019 VCA Garden Tour.
The Koch Gallery at VCA offers new gallery exhibits on a regular basis (usually monthly) including paintings, sculpture, mixed media, photography, wood, glass, ceramics and fiber. The Koch Gallery (pronounced “kah-sh”) encourages proposals for solo and group shows and installations.
