Gage Academy of Art, one of Seattle’s most beloved art institutions, is starting the new decade with 2020 Visions: Gage Academy of Art at 30, an art exhibition on view at the Washington State Convention Center, Seattle from January 9 through April 13, 2020.
Celebrating Gage’s 30th anniversary, 2020 Visions embodies the spirit of the school’s past, present and future through a selection of 70 artworks by 40 of its instructor-artists who, with their passion and dedication to teaching, partake every day in crafting the school’s ethos and vision. Working in a broad range of mediums ranging from oil on canvas and watercolor, to drawing, printmaking and sculpture, the Gage instructors share daily with their students not only techniques painstakingly honed but the eye-opening skill of learning to see.
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
