Pop-up Art Gallery Program

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: TRACY LEMOINE

We are pleased to feature the photographs of Tracy LeMoine in the August 2019 exhibit at the Burien Community Center.

Meet Tracy at the opening reception on Tuesday, August 6,  2019, from 6:00-7:30 PM at the Center. The exhibit runs through July, 2019, and is open to the public during Center hours, 8:30 AM-8:00 PM, Monday– Thursday, and 8:30-5:00 Friday.

Hailing from Fontana, CA, Tracy paints with acrylics and photographs nature subjects such as animals, landscapes, mountains, and sunsets. She often paints from her own photographs. She enjoys doing pet portraits as well.

Versatile Tracy also paints abstracts.

Tracy’s mother noticed her talent at a young age and enrolled her in oil painting lessons. Tracy had her first solo exhibit as a teen in Malibu, CA. She received an AA in Fine Arts from Santa Monica College in 1985.  Tracy has lived and painted in California, Oregon, Ohio, and now Washington State.

“I stopped painting for over a decade to raise my son and concentrate on my massage business,” Tracy said. “I have returned to painting and photography with a new passion. I am free from the stress of the world when I am creating art. I hope my paintings and photographs bless and inspire you.”

Tracy is owner-operator of Shining Star Massage Therapy, Des Moines, WA, where she lives as well. She is a member of the Artists United Club, a local artists group.

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.
