I go by the rule of three - once or twice might be a mistake but if I'm insulted three times by the staff, I don't come back. This was the third disappointing instance at Gage. Don't bother with them unless you enjoy paying to be insulted. Try giving your money to Pratt or any number of other fine Seattle institutions.

This is a great place for artists of any caliber. Classes might be pricey if you are used to a community college or other venue,but the instructors have a solid background in the arts and know the things that they are teaching you.

We are a retired couple who now have time to pursue our longstanding interest in art as students in drawing and painting. We have taken quarter-long classes, weekend and summer workshops and a variety of the evening lecture series at Gage. In each case the instruction has been excellent and has helped us improve in all aspects of our art. We also regularly attend the free monthly lectures. Some of these lectures introduced us to the work of established artists in this area. Other lectures we enjoyed were given by museum curators and gallery owners. The lectures have made us much more aware of what is happening in the local art scene. Other lecures have given practical advice to the emerging artist. These lectures helped one of us prepare for a show at a local gallery through guidance on pricing decisions and writing an artist statement. We both have taken advantage of the opportunity to show our work in the student art shows. One of us was chosen to have a one-man show in one of Gage's galleries and also won a prize in the annual student art show.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always professional, helpful and welcoming. The two founders have created one of the finest art academies in the country. Seattle is very lucky.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

pursue long-term planning to establish the Academy as a permanent Seattle institution. This would include finding adequate classroom and studio space that is accessible to all.
