Koch Gallery

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.
