As far as Galleries go Shoreline really doesn't have one. There is something Shoreline wants to call a Gallery, but it is actually a boutique in a Mall, under some stairs. Not so hot.

Its very low profile So bad as to say its not visible. A gallery should be present in the core of a city. Not in a mall again under stairs.

WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN. This new idea of making a City center on Aurora Between 182nd and 175th is were a Gallery should be put so we can show case our non amateur artist.

NEXT... Artist need to be paid. There is no drop in figurative drawing, no drawing or painting classes available on the civic level. Again this City center on Aurora Between 182nd and 175th is were an artist collective belongs.

Building public art installations really helps one or two artist out a couple times a year and stagnates hope to build a visible art scene from ever starting. Artist need to be paid so that's why Galleries are so important.

Public art installations may look like something in a way of community involved in arts and culture. However involvement in arts and culture means more artist must public higher profile to become established. So what is happening so far without an actual Gallery is merely "busy sounds".

Bottom line put a Gallery in where the new City Center.
Aurora Between 182nd and 175th.
