Harris Harvey Gallery, the reincarnation of the 32-year old Lisa Harris Gallery, is a leading Seattle fine art gallery where new and experienced collectors go to find paintings, prints, photography, and sculpture of the highest quality. Conveniently located in the historic Pike Place Market district and West Edge neighborhood of Seattle, the gallery is within walking distance of the Seattle Art Museum and SAM Olympic Sculpture Park. Harris Harvey Gallery specializes in contemporary art by local, regional, and West Coast artists, many from the Seattle area. Drawing from its group of emerging, mid-career, and established artists, the gallery mounts rotating exhibitions and participates in the First Thursday Seattle Downtown Gallery Art Walk.
Known for its lively exhibition program, the gallery has established a reputation for the quality of its long-standing relationships with artists and clients, and serves as a cultural and educational resource for the Seattle community. Expert guidance in the selection of art, framing, shipping, and storage is available. In addition, Harris Harvey Gallery works with art consultants, designers, and curators to place art in private, corporate, and other institutional collections. We are proud to promote our artists through outside exhibitions, catalogs, and collaborations with museums.
