Founded in March of 2022 by Parisa Sadeghi and Don Wesley, GalleryW represents artists from the greater Puget Sound region and beyond. GalleryW includes education with all its exhibits, including details about the artist's purpose and process for their work.
Connect people through art
Powered by a deep passion for connecting people through art, and having psychologically survived the pandemic by connecting with artists throughout the world, we have learned the value of maintaining healthy and creative community, no matter what form it needs to take to connect with each other.
Provide education through art
We have plans for making the world a better place by supporting local education for youth and adults in need as well as providing support to international organizations with the same objectives. We are current stakeholders in WomenRise, an internationally-focused NFT project aimed at bringing education to children in need via a school in the meta-verse and contributions to the Malala Fund. We will discover what local organizations we can help along the way.
1 - Local and international professional artists practicing in all mediums, including digital work and NFTs.
2 - Local and international programming aimed at connecting people with the original artist's stories and purpose.
3 - Local contributions to education initiatives and volunteering in the arts and education community.
Year 1 - Connect and Learn
Year 2 - Build and Do
Year 3 - Expand and Teach

Artists interested in showing at GalleryW in the future can request an artist application at any time. Please connect with us if you wish to apply. We do encourage artists to learn about the gallery and physically visit us before inquiring about showing. Mutual interest is critical to our collected success.
GalleryW exists on land belonging to the the traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Swinomish Indian Tribe. We are graciously thankful to be guests on these lands and cherish our relationship and connections with the Swinomish people.
