New Beginnings

Kerf International said farewell to their gallery in the Wallingford Center of Seattle last week as our lease expired. At the same time, Kerf International also signed with the local arts group, Shunpike.  This has provided us with the impetus to expand our reach into other areas of Seattle and beyond, with artist education and opportunities for growth. While we no longer operate a single gallery, we will be extending our reach to other venues, finding new locales to show, and making broader and stronger relationships in the community.  We welcome all inquiries from artists, companies, and individuals that have an interest in promoting art and increasing the exposure of artists. We are more excited than ever in our mission, the projects we will bring forward, and the artists who will benefit from our efforts.

THIRTY WOMEN ARTISTS OVER THIRTY


Kerf
International Gallery’s new exhibit, opening November 7th, 2015, was
initially inspired by two major exhibitions entitled “Thirty Artists
Under Thirty”. The first in the 1960’s, and the second was in the
1990’s. Both exhibits showcased young male and female artists who were
considered the investment stars of the future. Out of the many to
achieve international recognition, David Hockney and Damian Hurst are
certainly two of the most prominent.



THIRTY
WOMEN ARTISTS OVER THIRTY is one of our most important investments in
the “source”. The dedicated, creative, woman artist with the courage to
meet the challenges of “opportunity”. 



Our
investment in all exhibiting artists is in keeping with Kerf
International Gallery’s primary philosophy:  Seeking to provide
exhibition opportunities for the emerging and experienced professional
Working Artist as they continue their evolving competitive careers in a
fast paced, mulicultural world.
