J. Rinehart Gallery is delighted to announce Home and Away, our first exhibition of long-time Seattle artist, Kate Protage, and her first solo exhibition in over 6 years.

Best known for her details of individual shape and expressive brush stroke, Home and Away lives in the realm of a series of value changes and textural rhythms. The farther back you step away from the work, the clearer it becomes.

Home and Away, is meant to exist in the grey area between representation and abstraction, where light and solid forms are given equal consideration and are almost interchangeable. The streets, the buildings, the sky, the cars – they’re almost incidental as recognizable. The moments may pass, but the feelings remain.

Kate Protage received her BFA from Smith College, studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco before receiving her MFA in Painting with Academic Distinction from Pratt Institute in 2005. She has been creating and showing her work regularly with nearly sold-out exhibitions since 2001 from Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Princeton, New York and in between.

J. Rinehart Gallery is founded on the principle that bringing art into your home enhances your quality of living, connects you to your community, and fosters a greater understanding of humanity. Our diverse group of artists allows us to exhibit a variety of artwork suitable for any budget and will complement your personal sense of style.

We moved into our current location in the heart of the Seattle Arts District in Pioneer Square in 2019 and went to work creating an environment where anyone can feel comfortable visiting the gallery to explore marvelous works of art and discuss your wants and needs. Rotating exhibitions afford our clients a new and exciting experience with each visit and the opportunity to meet and socialize with artists and other collectors. We strive to make fine art accessible and attainable to all while keeping with our high standards of quality.

Whether you are looking for artwork to complete your décor, a future family heirloom, or just looking to fall in love with a piece of art to take home, we would love to discuss your needs. We deal in the art of falling in love with art.
