EXHIBITION: July 7 - August 20, 2022

ArtXchange Gallery presents "I Wish I Could," a new series of paintings by William Hernandez. These narrative, dream-like works explore the connections between past and present, and our relationships to each other, during times of transition. Hernandez uses graphic, stylized figures to create softly surreal narratives blending references from his past, the world around him, literary works, history and mythology.

William Hernandez is a Portland-based painter whose artwork creates a bridge spanning his past traditions and memories to his life today as an artist, educator, organizer, and Peruvian living in the Pacific Northwest.

ArtXchange Gallery is a contemporary art gallery that inspires exploration, encourages global perspectives and creates an exchange of ideas through art. We exhibit art that reflects the diversity of influences shaping the Seattle community and contemporary global culture.

Founded in 1995, ArtXchange Gallery has evolved from an online gallery to a pop-up showroom and now to our current 2000+ square foot gallery in Pioneer Square. The gallery features rotating exhibitions, as well as creative events including artist workshops, poetry readings and dance performances.

Join us for Pioneer Square's historic First Thursday Artwalk, on the first Thursday of every month from 5-8pm!
