Since 1980, the Art Gym has been recognized as a venue that exhibits some of the most significant and timely art of this region. The mission of the gallery is to increase public understanding of the contemporary art of the Pacific Northwest through exhibitions, artists’ projects, publications, and public engagement. The Art Gym is a non-collecting, non-commercial gallery that supports artists in creating ambitious, risk-taking projects at key stages in their careers. As an art space working within an academic venue, we are dedicated to making knowledge accessible and committed to providing artistic and intellectual freedom. The Art Gym’s catalogs continue to be among the greatest records of Pacific Northwest contemporary art, contributing to the discourse on contemporary art and representing the region.
