Meet emerging artists, see their work


We bought some art from emerging Northwest artists to add to the city’s Portable Works Collection. Come check out the artworks, meet the artists and enjoy some free eats. We’re hosting an artist reception, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Seattle Municipal Tower Gallery.

On display are 25 works by 17 artists—including paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture and mixed media. The featured pieces are part of a larger recent purchase by Seattle City Light totaling 86 works by 56 artists. We’ve divided the purchase up into three shows. This show is the second installment. It closes on Dec. 31. The rest of the artworks will be on display in a third exhibition opening in January. Preview all the artworks online.
