While there is no Seattle Art Fair this year, a number of galleries from Seattle and beyond have banded together to create the Seattle Deconstructed Art Fair (SDAF) during August. Gallery owner and alum Greg Kucera sparked the idea for SDAF in a mid-July email to other galleries, and the concept developed quickly.
Below we have listed galleries showing the work of faculty, staff, and/or alums of the School of Art + Art History + Design. Please email us if we have missed including someone. Check the SDAF website for the full list of participating galleries.
