The new Burien Arts Gallery has opened its doors in Olde Burien and is devoted to showcasing the works of artists of various media and notoriety.  We love to feature established artists and emerging artists alike, including student artists.  The gallery is free and open to the public.

Burien Arts Gallery will be showing our Annual Student Art Exhibition from February 7th until March 2nd.  This exhibit will showcase the works of students from several Highline Schools including paintings, sculptures and ceramics.

Featured Artists

Maureen Hoffmann – Her current “Cuneiform” series draws inspiration from her lifelong study of penmanship, calligraphy and letterforms. They present, at once, no language and all language.

Colleen Monette – Her recent work has explored the ongoing massive die-off of the honeybee, combining plaster, wax and collage elements to convey the warmth of the hive and begin a dialogue about their plight.

Lory Newsom – My intent is to create works that express and reveal what is in my heart in the moment, being equal parts sacred practice and inspired play.

Marjorie Thompson – I am inspired by the representations of animal totems and the meanings and messages these gentle creatures carry for us.  My paintings combine my love of the local animals and their stories as told through the layers of my work.
