Changes at Gallery ONYX
As many of you are aware, ONYX Fine Arts Collective opened and successfully operated a retail fine arts gallery under the name of Gallery Onyx in the heart of Seattle's Belltown neighborhood for a period of 2 years.
We were required to close the gallery at the end of June 2017 due to expansion of our then landlord the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI). During that 2 year period the experience gained from operating a gallery and the value brought to our artists and the Seattle community in general, was immeasurable. Gallery visitors from the Pacific Northwest communities and from outside the Pacific Northwest (including foreigners) were continuously making comments about the unique beauty of our artwork on display. Because artists would often be in the gallery, visitors were excited to actually personally engage the artist who created the piece.
After closing in June, 2017, ONYX immediately began searching high and low for a new gallery location. After a six month search, we are excited to announce that GALLERY ONYX has reopened BIGGER and BETTER in the heart of Seattle's downtown at the Pacific Place Mall, at 600 Pine Street in Suite 325. A beautiful 3,000 sq. ft. space that will showcase the works of many of our Associate artists at once.
There's plenty being planned for the new gallery that will be shared soon. But in the interim, stand-by for upcoming announcements regarding the new 2018 phase of our journey showcasing the visual artworks of our artists of African descent.
