The Hedreen Gallery at the Lee Center for the Arts is dedicated to the vibrancy of Seattle's artistic community. Our mission is to support the work of emerging artists and exhibit new work by established artists: local, national, international. We strive to catalyze artistic process and dialogue; to connect artists, audiences, and resources; and to engage the community in the arts. Always free and open to the public.


Seattle University's Hedreen Gallery and Vachon Gallery are temporarily closed and all public programs have been suspended until further notice.  Please follow Seattle University updates about the COVID-19 response.
