Contemporary Intercultural Art
ArtXchange Gallery is a contemporary intercultural art gallery that inspires cultural exploration, the expansion of global community and the exchange of ideas through art. We exhibit art from around the world that reflects the diversity of influences shaping the Seattle community and contemporary global culture.
Celebrating 20 Years
ArtXchange has evolved from online gallery to private showroom and finally to our current 2000+ square foot gallery space in Pioneer Square. The gallery features rotating solo and group exhibitions, as well as events including artmaking workshops, poetry readings and dance performances.
