The Pop-up Art Gallery at the Municipal Office is open during City business hours, Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The Gallery is free and open to the public.

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

In 2018, the Pop-Up Gallery will move to the Burien Community Center, 14700 6th Avenue SW, Burien, WA.

Burien Arts Gallery Closed

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.

Featured Artist


We are pleased to feature the paintings of the late Janet Price in the December 2017 exhibit at the Pop-up Art Gallery in the lobby of the City of Burien Municipal Office, Burien City Hall.

Janet died this year in a bicycle accident while on vacation on Ireland this year. Our exhibit is hosted by Janet’s family as a tribute to her.

Meet family members at the opening reception, Friday, December 1  from 5:30-7:30 PM, at the City of Burien Municipal Office, 400 S.W. 152nd St., 3rd floor, Take the elevator from the 1st floor lobby by the Library to reach the 3rd floor.

The exhibit runs to December 29 and is open to the public during City business hours, 8 AM-5 PM, Monday – Friday.

Janet had homes and studios in Seattle and Taos, NM. “In my painting, I am very inspired by the southwest landscape, which extends well into Mexico: the high country colors, the light, and the cultures, While I find it interesting to paint plein air, I prefer painting in my studio,” she has stated.

“One of the things I love about art is the ability to work in many different mediums. I am an acrylic painter, print maker, and collage artist. I have also dabbled in sand cast brass and glass, stained glass, slumped glass, colored pencil, pottery, and basketry,” she continued.

She studied with various artists in Seattle and Taos and has exhibited in galleries in both locations.

Born in Detroit, MI, Janet always loved art, but got a BA in Math from the University of MI and an MA in Computer Science and Business at the University of Wisconsin. She enjoyed a long successful career at the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources and later at Weyerhauser in Seattle. Janet was noted as a pioneer for women in technology and management.

After retirement, she devoted herself to art, drawing inspiration from her extensive travels and the New Mexico landscape. She also loved to hike and ski.

Note: The works shown here on this website may not be those shown in the exhibit.
