The Best of Gage award ceremony not only provides Gage the opportunity to recognize the artistic achievements of our workshop and regular course students, but also to honor the dedication of our Atelier (1-4 year commitment) students, and congratulate those who have graduated while their friends, family, classmates, and instructors cheer them on.

The online art exhibition features 98 works from current Gage students. All students who submit artwork for the juried exhibition are eligible to win first, second or third place across 8 categories: Abstract, Figure, Landscape, Narrative, Portrait, Sculpture, Socially Engaged, and Still Life – for a total of 26 awards, including the Best of Gage and Gage Staff Pick awards. This year’s juror, artist Juan Alonso-Rodríguez, judged the exhibition categories and selected the winners.

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs

Gage Academy of Art is committed to social justice in a diverse democracy
