The Seattle Art Fair is a one-of-a-kind destination for the best in modern and contemporary art and a showcase for the vibrant arts community of the Pacific Northwest. The fair brings together the region’s strong collector base; local, national, and international galleries; area museums and institutions; and an array of innovative public programming.
Now in our 16th year, Shift was recently juried into The Seattle Art Fair for the third time, demonstrating the strength of our artists’ work and the ongoing efforts of our members. The Shift model is beautifully simple; total creative freedom, and ongoing participation in working toward the gallery’s success. Our inclusion in this international fair underscores the legitimacy of the “blank slate” cooperative’s rise in the art world, as more and more artists choose to supplement their gallery representation by staging their own venues–from studio sales to pop-up installations to single-artist art fair booths.

In Maternology, Arnitz explores themes of womanhood, especially in relation to motherhood. Challenges and happy moments women face in motherhood, pregnancy, and marriage run the full gamut of complex and sometimes contradicting emotions. Arnitz takes on all from anxiety to love, often with humor, in various media using symbols of femininity.
