Changes at Davidson Galleries

(Wendy Orville’s “Kealia #3″ is currently on show at Davidson Galleries.)

From Seattle Times arts writer Michael Upchurch:

Some notable changes in the local gallery scene: Jeffery Kuiper, Davidson Galleries’ director for the painting and sculpture department for the last several years, is leaving to become director of Seattle ArtREsource, a gallery that sells works of art from private collections on consignment.

In the meantime, Davidson Galleries will focus more exclusively on works on paper, gallery owner Sam Davidson’s “first and abiding love,” as he put it in a statement released on late last week.

Davidson Galleries, in business for 40 years, has presented more than 800 exhibits in a wide range of mediums. A veritable Pioneer Square institution, it’s one of the few survivors in what used to be a crowded gallery row on Occidental Avenue South.

Davidson Galleries’ change of emphasis doesn’t mean that exhibitions will end, Davidson emphasized, or that any plan is afoot to move the gallery from its present location.

“It does signal a gradual shift away from sculpture and painting,” he said. “For those already familiar with the two print departments, the changes I am making to these will be minimal by comparison.”
