No Receptions Scheduled

Dear valued patrons and supporters of La Petite Galerie and Gunnar Nordstrom Fine Arts,

We hope this message finds you well. We wanted to take a moment to inform you of some upcoming changes that may affect your visits to our gallery over the next two months to view our exhibit "Interruptions".

As part of the City of Kirkland's efforts to improve pedestrian safety and accessibility, the intersection of Lake Street and Kirkland Avenue will undergo significant renovations, including the implementation of a Pedestrian Scramble. While we are excited about the long-term benefits this will bring to our downtown area, we understand that the construction process will pose challenges for both our business and our patrons.

During the two-month closure of the intersection, all traffic will be rerouted around the business district, and parking and loading areas will not be easily accessible. We recognize that this may deter some of our valued customers from visiting us, especially during our scheduled Solo Artist Exhibitions.

In light of these circumstances, we have made the decision to postpone any scheduled Solo Artist Exhibitions over the next two months. Instead, we will be showcasing gallery-owned inventory, curated to provide an engaging and enticing experience for our visitors. This collection will include familiar works as well as pieces from our past exhibitions, offering both collectors and patrons an opportunity to rediscover old favorites and perhaps find new treasures at advantageous prices.

While we understand that the construction may present challenges, we want to assure you that there will still be parking available in the Marina Park parking lot, the Library, and south of Anthony's Homeport on Lake Street. These options are just a short walk away from our gallery, and we hope that you will continue to support us during this time.

Our representation of The Art of Dr. Seuss will remain on display as usual, and we will continue to offer new works as they are released. We believe that these unique and collectible pieces will provide a delightful experience for visitors of all ages.

Our first exhibit "Interruptions - Part I"  March 29 - April 28, 2024 will be Serigraphs by Thomas McKnight, Lithographs by Michel Delecroix, Oils and Etchings by Jurgen Gorg, Etchings by Willi Kissmer, and bronzes by Kevin Pettelle with a little of this and that thrown in. Also keep in mind that we have drawers filled with lots of unframed artwork that we are happy to go through with you.

Our following exhibit "Interruptions - Part II" May 2 - June 9, 2024 (anticipating the scheduled opening of our streets again on June 1) is yet to be determined, but we will find some fun and good valued work to offer.

We want to express our gratitude for your continued support as we navigate through these next few months. Whether you come to browse our gallery, admire the works of Dr. Seuss, or simply enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of downtown Kirkland and the Marina District, we look forward to welcoming you with open arms, regardless of whether you come with a checkbook in hand.

Thank you for being a part of our community, and we hope to see you soon.
