Good news here in the pandemic closures during November! Because SAM Gallery and SAM Shop are both considered retail, they are open now through December even though the museum is closed. No ticket is required, making it easy to shop local and support Seattle Artists and craftspeople. Hours are 10-5 Monday through Friday, with entry on First Avenue. 206.654.3120 for more information. You can also order and shop online. Art in the gallery is available to purchase, rent or rent to purchase, with pricing for every budget. Sixty artists are represented at the gallery, in a wide variety of media and styles, and the list includes many of the Pacific Northwest’s finest painters and image makers.

I urge you to support the Seattle Art Museum and local artists and creatives this year in any way you can. The holiday season is when many in the creative community make the majority of their income for the year. Without crafts sales or open houses due to the pandemic, many artists will struggle to stay afloat. Every sale at the Seattle Art Museum supports both the artists and the museum itself. Let’s make sure when the city re-opens after the pandemic closures that we have a vital creative infrastructure. Every bit of support you offer now will ensure the future cultural life of the city!
