Seattle Businesses That Support Artists

As an artist, businesses that focus on promoting local artists are near and dear to my heart. With this in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to create an informal list of local Seattle businesses that carry original art, prints, hand-made crafts or items featuring artists from the Pacific Northwest. If you would like me to add a business or see inaccurate information, please contact me using the form below the listing.
