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 moves to the Burien Community Center, 14700 6th Avenue SW, Burien, WA, starting with the new exhibit on January 9, 2018.

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 EXHIBIT

We are pleased to feature the collages of Linda McClamrock on the theme “A Gift of Music” in the February 2018 exhibit at the Pop-up Art Gallery at the Burien Community Center, 14700 6th Avenue SW, Burien, WA.

Meet Linda at the opening reception, Wednesday, February 7, 2018, from 6:00-7:30 PM at the Community Center.

The exhibit runs to February 23 and is open to the public during Center hours, 8:30 AM-8:00 PM, Monday–Thursday, and 8:30-5:00 Friday.

Linda is a self-taught collage artist who uses primarily recycled paper (magazines and other found paper) together with acrylic paint and glue to create her beautiful and whimsical collages.

She loves creating something beautiful out of materials that would otherwise be thrown away and gives 10% of sales to charity.

She started working in collage about six years ago. “ I always considered myself a musician and not an artist, she said. “What joy to be surprised in middle age by a new thing I not only could do, but do well!” Linda does not draw any of her designs, but merely picks up her scissors and a stack of magazines and starts cutting shapes.

Linda has shown her work in many art festivals and art walks, as well as at the Alki Art Gallery. One of her collages is in the City of Seattle’s collection. She also has a shop on etsy .

A business graduate of the University of WA, Linda worked for Nordstrom for 15 years as a Software Engineer, Web Software Engineer, Applied Solutions Architect, and Enterprise Applied Business Architect.
