There is no fee to submit your work for this exhibit.

The Phinney Center Gallery supports local emerging artists and is located in the historic Phinney Center in Seattle, Washington. Our gallery shows are advertised to 20,000 local community members and thousands of people visit the Phinney Center each month.
