Current & Upcoming Exhibits
For the month of April, Make.Shift Gallery will be hosting two evocative exhibits from two unique Pacific Northwest Artists. Our entrance gallery will showcase "I Can’t Kill Myself Because…", a series of photographs by Bellingham artist, Kat Varela. The main gallery will house "Trash" with multimedia works from Portland-based visual artist, Shanley Narens. Join us for the opening of both exhibits on First Friday Art Walk.
Every year, Make.Shift Gallery celebrates Kid's Art Walk in May. This year, we've partnered with Cedar Tree Montessori and asked 4th to 6th grade students to create artistic renderings of their imaginary friends. Over the last two months, Make.Shift Gallery promoted an open call to artists in the community encouraging them to create original responses inspired by the kid’s artwork.
