2020-21 Exhibitions


Through the 2020-21 exhibition season, Seattle University Department of Art, Art History, and Design and the Seattle University Art Galleries worked remotely to pursue the Hedreen Gallery mission. During this time the physical gallery was closed, but the small Seattle University Galleries team has worked directly with artists, students, and organizations to create flexible and responsive opportunities to share art and ideas.
