The Seattle Art Fair is a one-of-a-kind destination for the best in modern and contemporary art and a showcase for the vibrant arts community of the Pacific Northwest. Based in Seattle, a city as renowned for its natural beauty as its cultural landscape, the fair brings together the region’s strong collector base; local, national, and international galleries; area museums and institutions; and an array of innovative public programming. Founded in 2015 by Paul G. Allen, the Seattle Art Fair is produced by Vulcan Inc. and Art Market Productions.    

This year’s Seattle Art Fair will take place August 3 - 6, 2017​ at the CenturyLink Field Event Center​. The Seattle Art Fair continues to grow, showcasing the beauty of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, and the area’s vibrant cultural scene and collector base and bringing cutting-edge contemporary art to the region, with a total of a total of 84​ exhibitors, representing 26​ cities from 9 ​countries including 50​ galleries from the Pacific Rim.  

This year’s dealer committee is comprised of Lidia Andich (Gagosian Gallery), Robert Goff (David Zwirner Gallery), James Harris (James Harris Gallery), William Hathaway (Night Gallery), Greg Kucera (Greg Kucera Gallery), ​and Elizabeth Sullivan (Pace Gallery).  

The Seattle Art Fair is also pleased to have two beneficiary partners this year, Coyote Central ​and Arts Corps​, which both aim to address racial and economic disparities in arts education. ​A portion of the funds raised during Thursday’s beneficiary preview will be shared between the two organizations and support Coyote Central ​in providing equitable access for underserved and immigrant youth to intensive hands-on art courses with professional artists, and Arts Corps’ Creative Schools Initiative​, ​which ​boosts creativity and strengthens academic learning for students in grades K-8 by integrating the fine arts into the classroom setting.
