About

A Contemporary Intercultural Art Gallery

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.

About The Founder

Born in Asia and raised in America, gallery director Cora Edmonds' international background, combined with her love of art, travel, and photography, influenced her to establish ArtXchange in 1995 as a way to raise cultural awareness and promote global understanding through art.

Where We Are Today

ArtXchange has evolved from online gallery to private showroom and finally to our current location in Pioneer Square. Our expanded gallery allows us to mount exhibitions on a larger scale, as well as being a community asset for events such as art auctions, book-signings and performances.
ArtXchange Gallery has supported and partnered with organizations including:  
  • Legacies of War
  • PATH
  • Arts & Social Change Partnership
  • La Sala Latino/a Artist Network
  • National Centre for Ceramics (Wales)
  • Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS)
