2020 is about perspective: hindsight, foresight, insight.

Vashon Center for the Arts galleries are filled with socially and environmentally inspired exhibitions that engage the viewers in a conversations with others or within themselves. Come explore what the artists have to say and how they express and manifest it though their art. Our curation dives into stirring and thought provoking exhibitions that tie in with the awareness movements of the US and the world at large. Come and join in the conversation.

We’re offering our guests and patrons a year filled with fabulous solo and group shows in our Koch Gallery and Fong-Wheeler Atrium.  We also feature art and gifts in our Joy and Chai Mann Kiosk that showcases 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.

We encourage all our gallery visitors to bring their sketchbooks, blank books, or notepads.  Come on opening night – First Friday of every month, but by all means come back when you can spend time writing a verse, doing a sketch, or just sitting quietly with the art.
