Enriching Burien Through the Arts

Pop-up Art Gallery

NOTE: The Highline Heritage Museum is closed until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Burien Arts Association is  pleased to announce that we will host bi-monthly art exhibits at the Highline Heritage Museum, 819 SW 152nd St, Burien, starting in January 2020.

The opening receptions will take place on the first Friday of the month in conjunction with the First Friday Music and Art Walk.

Quarterly exhibits at the Burien Community Center, 14700 6th Avenue SW, Burien, round out our art exhibit program for 2020.

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

In 2018, the Pop-up Gallery moved to the Burien Community Center, WA, starting with an exhibit in January 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!


Much thanks to our grantors, who help make it possible to offer many events free of charge.

And thanks to YOU, the residents and businesses of Burien, who have participated in and supported our programs since 1964.

Upcoming Museum exhibits:

Aug. 2020:  “Art of Love” by Latinx Artists

The beautiful art in this exhibition comes from The Home Visitor Family Calendar/ Calendario familiar de los visitadores del hogar for home visitor support programs to use with Spanish speaking families across the state.

All people should be able to live and love freely without fear. The idea to create a Spanish language calendar to promote healthy relationships came from home visitors who are multi/lingual and multi/cultural Spanish speakers working and living in Latinx communities. Each month of the calendar has an original illustration created by eight different Latinx women artists in Washington State. The illustrations were inspired by the accompanying affirmations.  We believe in the power of art to tell stories and show the impact of love in our communities.

This projected is supported by the Washington Department of Health and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Featured Artist


We are pleased to feature the collage and mixed media works of Rebecca Sayre for our April-May 2020 exhibit.

Our exhibit is virtual at this time as our usual venue, the Highline Heritage Museum, is closed until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic. Please see our video below:

“I am moved by the natural world and feel drawn to exploring different perspectives through paper and paint,” Rebecca said. “I enjoy how these elements work together in surprising ways to create such interesting depth and texture.”

“My favorite part is when the piece begins to lead me instead of my pre-conceived notion about what it is to become,” she added.

Rebecca is a real estate broker at Infiniti Real Estate and Development, Seattle. Prior to her work in real estate, Rebecca  worked locally and nationally as a communications professional for non-profits and political candidates with a commitment to caring for our communities and natural resources.

She is the past president of Washington Women for Climate Action Now and served for several years on the board of the Northwest Outward Bound School.

Rebecca holds an MA in Public Policy and Administration from the University of Washington.

The opening reception will take place once the Governor’s quarantine orders are lifted.  Our receptions take place during the First Friday Art Walk from 6:00-7:00 PM.  Please visit the exhibit 6:00-7:00 PM as the room hosts a speaker at 7:00 PM.

The Highline Heritage Museum is located at 819 SW 152nd St, Burien, WA, and is usually open Tuesday-Sunday 12:00-5:00.

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