First Seattle Art Fair to feature approximately 40 leading local, regional, and international art galleries
Seattle Art Fair will feature approximately 40 leading local, regional, and international art galleries presenting top tier modern and contemporary art.

SEATTLE, WA.- Art Market Productions and Vulcan Inc. ​announced the inaugural Seattle Art Fair to be held July 30 - August 2, 2015 at the CenturyLink Field Event Center in Seattle, Washington.

Seattle Art Fair is a platform designed to showcase the vibrant culture and diversity of the Pacific Northwest. Through inventive citywide cultural partnerships, the fair will be a destination for new and established collectors, international art patrons, and residents of one of the fastest growing cities in the US. ​

Seattle Art Fair will feature approximately 40 leading local, regional, and international art galleries presenting top tier modern and contemporary art. The fair will also highlight the Pacific Rim, with Asian galleries presenting the best of their region’s contemporary artwork. ​ ​

Seattle Art Fair is thrilled to announce its Dealer Committee of James Cohan, Catharine Clark, Paul Kasmin, and Greg Kucera. The Dealer Committee will work with Fair Director Max Fishko to cultivate gallery relationships that speak to the fair's unique and powerful message.

The Seattle Art Fair will look to its city for inspiration. In partnership with its Curatorial Committee of Greg Bell, Senior Curator for Vulcan, Inc., Scott Lawrimore, Director of the University of Washington’s Jacob Lawrence Gallery, and Eli Ridgway, an independent curator, Seattle Art Fair will feature site-specific art installations to be placed in select locations throughout the city created for the fair by artists from around the world.

“This is a unique and exciting venture for us because it’s really two projects happening simultaneously. While we are proud to be building an art fair for Seattle, we are also thrilled to steward a city-wide activation of the visual arts that will have its own life and point of view. Working with the Curatorial Committee, we’re going to break through the boundaries of the traditional art fair to really ignite the imagination of the city and the global arts community.” says Max Fishko, Director of the Seattle Art Fair and Managing Partner of Art Market Productions.

Seattle-based Artist Trust will be the beneficiary partner of the Seattle Art Fair. This partnership enlivens the Seattle Art Fair's vision to support innovative creative thinkers and makers within the region. Seattle is known for its commitment to the arts - for its long-time support of its cultural organizations and art institutions. The region’s thriving public arts program is renowned for its integration of artists and ideas into the living design of the city. The Seattle Art Fair will build on this momentum to create a truly unique, innovative art event that will further establish Seattle as an influential player in the global art landscape.

“We are proud to establish an ambitious and extraordinarily creative art fair in Seattle," said Mary Ann Prior, Director Art Collections, Vulcan, Inc. "The inaugural fair will expand the impact art has on the city, the region and the Pacific Rim. It will change the way Seattle experiences art, and the way the art community experiences Seattle.”
