Great news! DANIEL SMITH STORES has announced they are expanding. The Seattle location is adding an 1800 square foot event space next door to their store. The space will be used for lectures, demonstrations, and workshops. In addition, the room will be an available meeting space for local arts organizations. The new space adds to the already existing classroom and gallery in Seattle and the event room in the Eastside store. Construction is underway and the Lecture Hall will open in March 2016.
“We need more event space!” said Joe Bosch, Seattle store manager. “Our 2016 calendar is packed with visiting artists on top of a very busy local artist workshop and demo program. The number one thing customers ask us for is more education. We also want to make it available to local arts organizations to use as a community service.”
Visiting artists this year include Stella Canfield, Thomas Schaller, Jean Buescher Bartlett, Jean Haines, Alvaro Castagnet, Dan Smith (the founder), Leslie Redhead, Iain Stewart, Georgia Mansur, Jane Davenport, Gina Rossi Armfield, Brenda Swenson, Carol Carter, and Frank Eber. New artists are being added all the time; check the events blogs for current listings:
