Announcing the Bemis Building 2012 Fall Art Show!
The Bemis Building’s Annual Fall Art Show features open artists’ studios and a juried exhibition in the hallways of guest artists from all over the state. For nearly a century, the towering letters of the Bemis Company sign have dominated the skyline just south of Pioneer Square, marking the edge of Seattle’s industrial district. With 30 artist live/work lofts, the building represents an extremely unusual industrial artifact. The Bemis Building is always a tough act to beat at 55 South Atlantic Street. See the Fall Prospectus for full details and schedule.
About the Venue:
The Bemis building’s top 2 floors are artist live/work studio lofts and create a unique venue in Seattle for producing art shows because of the expansive size of its hallways and the eclectic studios spaces of its resident artists. The footprint of 30,000 sq ft per floor allows for 10ft wide hallways and 18ft high ceilings creating a great exhibiting space. The vision for the building’s renovation in 1996 was to create spaces where artists could live and work, and create exhibiting spaces large enough to foster the development of an art community independent of the surrounding area – back then the Bemis was outside the mainstream gallery area.
