Canlis Glass Gallery is a great glass gallery located in the corner of Belltown, the perfect way to round out a day of art! My boyfriend and I swung by Canlis after spending the afternoon in the Olympic Sculpture Park (just down the block!) and ended up staying a long time admiring the beautiful glass pieces and conversing with the staff.
Not only did we see a large collection of art by the one artist showcased there (JP Canlis), but we also learned about the process of glass art making, and even got a peak into the studio in back! Small drawback, on a student's budget, the art was a bit out of our price range, but we were in no way forced out the door or looked down upon for it. It was a great gallery experience, and I promise everyone will find a piece there that speaks to them! His ocean and nature themes are created to look inspiring and reflective, not cheap or tourist-y.
Best part, Boat St. Cafe right next door solved our dinner problem. Next time I'm in Belltown, I'll definitely be stopping in to see new pieces!
