Enriching Burien Through the Arts

Stay in Touch


We are pleased to feature the photographs of Doug Early for our June-July exhibit.

Our exhibit is virtual at this time as our usual venue, the Highline Heritage Museum, is closed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see our video below:

“I enjoy taking pictures that can take a person on a journey, either by showcasing a foreign city’s highlights that piques the individual’s curiosity, an unusual landscape that begs the observer to want to know more, or through a nature shot of a flower in bloom that brings a wonderful calmness and serenity for the viewer,” Doug stated.

Photography started out as a hobby for Doug while growing up in Westfield, NJ. He had a small Kodak camera, which he used to take snapshots on family vacations.

As an adult living in New York City and Washington, DC, Doug enjoyed walking through the various neighborhoods and taking photos of whatever caught his eye.

Drawn by the scenic beauty of the Pacific NW, Doug moved to Seattle in 2000. Favorite places include the Olympics, the Cascades, the San Juan Islands, and Puget Sound.

Doug has traveled widely in the US and abroad, camera in hand. Destinations include England, Italy, Spain, Japan, New Zealand, Portugal, and the Czech Republic.

He works for the City of Seattle as an Administrative Specialist. Previous jobs include Travel Consultant with Victoria Clipper and Customer Service Rep with US Airways.

Doug holds a BA in Elementary Education from Central Washington University, Ellensberg, WA, and an AAS in Airport Management from Mercer County Community College, West Windsor, NJ.

Our opening receptions usually take place at the Highline Heritage Museum during the First Friday Art Walk from 6:00-7:00 PM. 

The 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.
