KAC Artist Opportunities

Kirkland Arts Center is a non-profit arts school and contemporary art gallery. Our mission is to promote artistic mastery and public participation in the visual arts through innovative classes, contemporary exhibitions, and events. We offer a number of opportunities for artists throughout the year, including group and solo exhibitions, art markets, and other events.

Gallery Exhibitions

The Kirkland Arts Center Gallery supports local artists and curators by providing a platform for engaging exhibitions which inspire art appreciation and creativity in the Kirkland arts community. View the space during our open gallery hours or contact our Exhibitions Program Manager at exhibitions@kirklandartscenter.org or (425) 822-7161 x102 to schedule an appointment.

KAC provides exhibition postcards, additional PR and online marketing, an opening reception, and support in seeking individual and corporate sponsorship for exhibitions. KAC takes a 40% commission on artwork sales during exhibitions.

Satellite Exhibitions

KAC also hosts satellite exhibitions at other locations, including the Kirkland Public Library. For questions about satellite exhibition opportunities, please contact our Exhibitions Program Manager at exhibitions@kirklandartscenter.org or (425) 822-7161 x102.
