Seattle Art Fair Solidifies Standing in Year Three

Event adds blue-chip galleries and international flavour to attract national as well as regional collectors -- 5,000 people turned out during the collectors’ preview on Wednesday evening, up 20% from the previous year. “The old maxims of a summer slowdown no longer apply,” says fair director.

The Seattle Art Fair was so Successful, The City Literally Applauded

If it felt like a renaissance, it did mark the arrival of a Medici. Some of the wealthiest men in the world live in Seattle, but art and culture here have suffered for resources for years, failing to build collector and donor bases, or major events that reliably attract outsiders to the artists of the region. But now, while Bill Gates focuses on global health and education with the Gates Foundation and Jeff Bezos works toward global business domination with Amazon, Microsoft cofounder and Seahawks owner Paul Allen is emerging as the patron of art in Seattle.

Seattle Art Fair Receives a Boost From Tech’s Big Spenders

“I saw that there were some New York dealers participating, I thought it would be interesting to see and support the city,” said the New York collector Beth Rudin DeWoody, who came on a whim and wound up buying a half-dozen works from dealers from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and Seattle, including a piece by the local artist Jeffry Mitchell.

Hannah Patterson
Wish You Were Her
Apr 3 - May 11, 2015

Exhibiting new .gif, video and print work, Wish You Were Her is Patterson's second solo exhibition with Interstitial. Referencing clichés of the feminine aesthetic, Patterson's glitter covered body parts, candy colored palettes, and magical desert landscapes express a fascination with 90s pop and sparkle commercialism.

Artist Pete Fleming at Interstitial

Pete Fleming
Dispersal Patterns
Mar 14 - Apr 4, 2015

Working primarily in video, photography, and installation, Pete Fleming explores the interplay between concept and concrete experience. Fleming uses speculative poetics to digest a mixture of personal observations and theoretical research. Dispersal Patterns is deliberately slow and quite, often silent, focusing on the relationships between object image and text.

Using media as her drawing tool, Seattle based artist Cait Willis has developed a practice of documenting digital miscommunication. Through the process of collecting glitches, a temporary pixilated disruption, she is able to capture the haunting beauty of our technological failures.


New Job & New Art Fair In Seattle

"Its aim is to make Seattle an art destination by using the city as a backdrop for art, much the way New Orleans does when it hosts Prospect 3, a contemporary-art biennial."
