The Kirkland Arts Center Gallery is a nonprofit, community-focused gallery space. Its mission is to support local artists and curators by providing a space for exhibitions that engage and inspire the greater community. These exhibitions encourage participation in the arts by making work accessible and available to residents of Kirkland. KAC supports emerging and established artists to exhibit their work and participate with the community in exploring what the work inspires in them. Our contemporary gallery features 5 to 6 shows per year in a variety of media on diverse topics. The KAC Gallery is free and open to the public, including opening receptions and artist talks. View KAC Gallery hours here.

The Gallery is closed December 04, 2023 — January 12, 2024 in observances of KAC’s annual winter closure and to perform gallery maintenance and preparations for the new exhibition year. The gallery manager is on site for office hours on Tuesdays 12-5 pm and Fridays 12-3 pm,

KAC also hosts exhibitions at the Kirkland Public Library. KAC is proud to partner with the Kirkland Library to bring local artists and exhibition to the community.
