Artisan gallery in Seattle's multicultural district offers well-crafted products alongside a modest programming space to promote artists' works. – In Short
Translated as "artist's workspace," this impressive gallery in the International District introduces fine crafts and functional design by artisans from Japan and the Northwest. The gallery focuses on traditional and contemporary works and has a thoughtful selection of merchandise inspired by Japanese aesthetic. The sizeable venue serves as a retail shop paired with exhibition and event space, featuring a noteworthy lineup year-round.
Hits: Occupying the former home of Higo Variety Store--a family-operated five-and-dime--this neighborly shop retains its spirit by utilzing unearthed vintage fixtures and showcasing historic artifacts.
Misses: Choose to walk or take the public transportation, as parking is typically challenging in the neighborhood.
