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 continue to exhibit there as well.
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!

RANDI REYNA: ANIMAL PORTRAITS
We are pleased to feature the acrylic and pastel paintings of animals by Brandi Reyna for our October exhibit.
“There are many variables to art. Each artist has his or her own unique style, statement, and purpose. I prefer beauty, happiness, vibrancy, soulfulness,” said Brandi. “I hope that each work I create speaks to the heart and makes it smile.”
Brandi grew up in the military (third generation on both sides) and moved every two or three years until she joined the service herself. She served in the Air Force for 26 years. Always artistically inclined, she had been painting pet portraits as a sideline.
During a 2016 military deployment, she attended a “Paint and Sip” morale event and was asked to replace the instructor who was nearing the end of her tour of duty. She led one class a month until her own return home.
“… being with so many people away from their families for so long, I knew that I could offer them comfort by having a small piece of home to hang in their room. I asked my airmen for photos of their pets, and during the deployment, I painted over 30 portraits to give them,” she explained.
“When I came home, I started taking my art more seriously after seeing its powerful effects. If I can brighten someone’s day even a little, that is what drives me… that little smile when someone looks into the eyes of my animals or sees the beauty in the natural landscape,” she said.
She lives in Redmond, WA.
