Pop-up Art Gallery

The Burien Arts Association debuted its new Pop-up Art Gallery program in January, 2017  in the lobby of the City Municipal Office, third floor, Burien Library and City Hall Building, 400 SW 152nd Street, Burien.

In 2018, the Pop-up Gallery moved to the Burien Community Center, 14700 6th Avenue SW, Burien, WA, starting with the new exhibit on January 9, 2018.

We also exhibit sometimes in the lobby of the Burien Actors Theatre, 14501 4th Avenue S.W., Burien,  during the run of a show.

We love to feature established artists and emerging artists alike, including student artists.

The previous Burien Arts Gallery, at 826 SW 152nd St. Olde Burien, closed on December 24, 2016 after three years of operation at that location.

We look forward to seeing you at our Pop-up Art Gallery locations!

Featured Artist

BURIEN COMMUNITY CENTER: SHEILA COPPOLA 

We are pleased to feature the prints of Sheila Coppola in the December 2019 exhibit at the Burien Community Center.

Meet Sheila at the opening reception on Tuesday, December 3, from 6:00-7:30 PM at the Center. The exhibit runs through December and is open to the public during Center hours, 8:30 AM-8:00 PM, Monday– Thursday, and 8:30-5:00 Friday.

Sheila was trained as a painter and printmaker at the University of Washington, receiving a BFA in painting in 1982. After graduation, she received a scholarship to the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Madison, ME.

In 1986 she co-founded Ink on Paper, a custom print shop dedicated to the creation of original hand-drawn lithographs using power press technology. In 1996 she established Sidereal Fine Art Press, Tukwila, WA, where she continues to work today.

Her focus is a combination of printing, painting and collage. Current work reflects a fascination with the poetry of George Oppen, a member of the 1930’s Objectivist movement. William Carlos Williams defined the literary goals of this movement in part as “an objectification of significant particulars,” which struck a chord with Coppola. She is in search of her own “little forms” in visual art which would function like the “little words” of Oppen’s  poems. She classifies her current work as “Poetic Cartoons.”

Sheila’s works have been included in local, national and international group shows as well as private collections.

She lives and works in Tukwila,WA, and volunteers as a Tukwila Arts Commissioner.

All works on display at the Community Center are for sale. Please email burienarts@gmail.com  for information on purchasing.

The Burien Community Center is located at 14700 6th Avenue SW, Burien, WA.
