Northwest Art Alliance was founded by a group of artists in 1989 to produce a holiday art show. Through the years the organization, now a 501 (c)(3), has become the heart of an expanding network of artists, art supporters, art organizations and art collectors. Like that first 'Best of the Northwest' Show, our current spring and fall shows feature the area’s best makers of both fine art and American craft.
Here at NWAA, our strategy is simple. Do whatever it takes to support and nurture artists in their development as they grow their small businesses. We do all of this with a tireless two-person professional staff, a few hourly contractors, and lots of volunteers dedicated to keeping artists and the arts alive in our community. We invite you to join them as a supporting member, sponsor, donor, volunteer, buyer, and attendee at our exciting art events.
Take a few minutes to look at our evolving website and visit the gallery page. It won’t be difficult to see why we are passionate about Northwest artists and artisans. Feel free to contact them directly through their gallery listings. And, be sure to sign up for all the latest news about NWAAs upcoming events and exhibitions.
