I went on a road trip to Seattle last Thursday with two friends who are also artists. The whole thing came about because the previous week I’d mentioned to said friends a show I wanted to see in Seattle, Morgan Brig at Patricia Rovzar Gallery. The next thing I knew we were going on an road trip to see art, including the Gauguin show at the SAM, and any other shows that took our fancy.

It was a fun day with Robi and Val. Besides the galleries we visited there were also stops at two local art supply shops, and one of my favorite book shops in the world, Elliot Bay Book Company. They’ve relocated to Capital Hill since the last time I visited and it seemed like the whole neighbourhood was blocks of interesting shops and restaurants.

Below are photos of some of the things I came across in Seattle that inspired me.

I love it when a plan spontaneously erupts out of nowhere – especially when it involves art.

looks like you hit some good spots! I haven’t been to Seattle in ages.

I’m hoping it’s the first of many art themed road trips. If you go, hit some of the art supplies shops as well.
