Art Galleries, Seattle, Washington

Seattle , Washington
Concierge.com's insider take:

Many of the city's art galleries are clustered around historic Pioneer Square; to get a thorough overview of the neighborhood's offerings, go on one of the monthly First Thursday art walks (www.pioneersquare.org/first_thursday.html). One of the most respected galleries in the city is Greg Kucera. The two-story space gives you a lot to explore; it's an egalitarian mix of big-name artists (you might see a Chuck Close or even a Matisse) and local up-and-comers (212 Third Ave. S.; 206-624-0770; www.gregkucera.com). William Traver Gallery focuses on the Northwest's (and the world's) best glass artists, though it also shows some ceramics and mixed-media sculpture (110 Union St.; 206-587-6501; www.travergallery.com). Seattle's coolest galleries are the sisters Roq La Rue (2312 Second Ave.; 206-374-8977; www.roqlarue.com) and BLVD (2316 Second Ave.; www.blvdart.com). Both are owned by Kirsten Anderson, a champion of the Northwest's more experimental and countercultural artists; Roq La Rue specializes in contemporary pop-culture-influenced pieces, while BLVD focuses on urban street art. Photography buffs should head to Benham Gallery. There's no strict focus to the works shown here, but it leans toward the provocative or the political rather than landscapes or portraiture (1216 First Ave.; 206-622-2480; www.benhamgallery.com).
