Maxx here with several big updates. At the end of August we closed our Shilshole location and moved to 2000 NW Market St, just a few blocks away. The Market St location was formerly home to Dakota Art. When they announced the closing of their Seattle store (their Mount Vernon and Bellingham are still open), we swooped in and made a deal not just to move into their location but also to take over the business of selling art supplies. We've been open at the new location since September 7th. Come by and visit us any day. We're open all of them now!
Sunday 10am - 6pm
Monday - Wednesday 11am - 7pm
Thursday - Saturday 11am - 9pm
And YES, we will continue to sell art supplies. We have added to the selection of items and are excited to continue curating the best in professional grad artist materials we can find.
Yes, we're now open 5 days a week. Stop in on Wednesdays 1pm - 6pm to meet the newest addition to the Push/Pull family, Megan M.
Megan comes to us from Florida and we're so excited and lucky to have her on our team.
See you on Wednesdays! Please wear masks and get vaccinated if you can so we can get back to our full schedule and welcome events back.
It's that time of year again, Give Big is here. Give Big is an annual fundraising time for Washington state nonprofits to focus our campaign efforts, leaving us to spend the rest of the year to concentrate on our mission of providing free arts programming.
This year our campaign goal grew as we added Greater Ballard Arts and Ballard Night Out (currently Ballard Night In) to our programming. These community programs support free promotional tools, events, and marketing for the arts community in Ballard.
With the addition of GBA and BNO, Push/Pull has taken the role of a leader in the arts community. But we can't do it without your help!
You can help us reach our fundraising goals at https://www.givebigwa.org/pushpull.
Wondering where your money goes?
$15 = one Summer Camp teen art kit
$60 = one online teen art session (2 hours)
$25 = artist stipend for Ballard Night In
$125 = print monthly maps for Ballard Night Out
$200 = print art books for Teen Art Program
$500 = a week of summer camp online for teens
$650 = a week of in-person summer camp
Every donation goes to supporting artists - from professional creators to teenage cartoonists. Focusing our fundraising once a year helps us to support artists, students, and neighbors for the rest of the year.

"Thank you so much for the support. It's wild that a gallery that I literally dreamed up has grown to be such a big part of the arts community in Seattle. And that we now support not just local artists, but hundreds of artists from all over the world. That being said, 2020 has been a rough year. And I'm definitely missing our annual anniversary party where I get to celebrate with all of you. We've been lucky to negotiate our rent down to a point where we can exist, but there are other expenses we are struggling to cover. You can help keep us around in a variety of ways below.
Wear your masks, stay at home, and we'll hope for an 8 year celebration with all of you."
We are so excited to be celebrating our seven year anniversary, and we have YOU to thank! Want to help keep the magic alive? Check out the exciting options listed here.

Review by Maxx
It's been a while of looking at the ATGR books on the shelves and the guilt of not having actually read them finally got to me. When they were brought it I flipped through them and loved the covers. I'm glad we have 4 issues now. The story starts off a bit rocky for those of us that didn't follow the webcomic. I like a story that doesn't feel the need to explain everything to the reader, but I felt like I was left guessing for the first two issues. ATGR follows Scout as she crash lands back on Earth after having only known life in a colony on Titan. Miles Greb notes in the back of the issues that all attempts have been made to make the stories scientifically accurate and invites questions or corrections. I enjoyed #4 the most, the story finally is taking on more of a plot than just chance encounters and characters beyond Scout develop depth. I also enjoyed the cleaner lines of Elli Puukangas work and hope that we get to see more in following issues.
Definitely recommended for the scientists in your life - young and old. This book is appropriate for all ages.
