Current & Upcoming Exhibits
Join us in June for “Devils in the Details,” a group art exhibit featuring drawings and paintings by Logan McQuaig, Kelly Hoekema, Toby Stanger, & Sarah Schild. All four Bellingham-based artists are exceptionally skilled in capturing the exquisite minutia of their subjects.
For the month of July, Make.Shift Gallery has invited four unique local artists for an exhibition titled, “Prospective Parts.” Through a variety of mediums, each artist’s practice focuses on complex representations of the human body. In different ways, each artist’s work raises interesting questions about the body’s role as a political landscape, a spiritual vehicle, and a visual subject.

Art due to Make.Shift: Sat July 28th by 5pm
Did you know that every year in Whatcom County, 50,000 lbs of litter gets picked up from our sidewalks and roads? In an effort to combat this wasteful problem, Make.Shift wants you to bring your trash to the Commercial Street Night Market in Downtown Bellingham.
