Elaine Hanowell creates new commission for the Dahlia Lounge


Seattle’s celebrated restaurant, the Dahlia Lounge, kicked off their anniversary in 2016 with a revamped interior featuring ten brand new lighted fish by ArtXchange Gallery artist Elaine Hanowell.

Elaine Hanowell’s fish have been a signature part of the popular restaurant since 1989, when restaurateur Tom Douglas commissioned Hanowell to create a series of custom fish lamps for his new space.

For the 2016 commission of new work, Elaine Hanowell created a new sculptural form in honor of the Dahlia Lounge – the iconic fish of the Pacific Northwest, the Salmon. Elaine’s new Salmon shape is swimming now at ArtXchange Gallery for all her fish fans. Contact us for information.
