Burien Arts to open new Art Gallery in Olde Burien in October
Burien Arts, a local arts non-profit since the 1960’s, will open a new Art Gallery (pictured above as its being finished) at 826 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien in October.
The gallery will be devoted to showing the works of established artists, emerging artists, and student art, and will be the sole art gallery serving the Highline area. Each month they will feature a new exhibition. Artists United will also show continuously in the Burien Arts Gallery.
“We are thrilled to again have an art hub in Burien,” said Gina Bourdage, Executive Director of Discover Burien. “It will not only bring cultural enrichment to the city, but also a positive economic impact to the surrounding businesses.”
The Gala Opening for the Burien Arts Gallery (B.A.G.) will be Thursday, Oct. 3 from 4 – 8 p.m. with the show FLASHBACK! Photographs from “the Sixties” Los Angeles/San Francisco by photographers Mark Daughhetee and Ken DeRoux will be on display. Bust out or borrow the bellbottoms, tie-dye and love beads and wear a flower in your hair!
Operating hours for the Burien Arts Gallery will be Wed. – Sat. from 12 – 7 p.m., and Sunday from 12 – 5 p.m. On Monday and Tuesday the gallery will be closed.
