About Us

Founded in July of 2011 Caravan Gallery • Parlor & Roadside Attractions started as an experiment in art presentation and building community. We participated in various Seattle Art walks, several Georgetown Carnivals, the Tashiro Kaplan Artist Lofts 10th Anniversary Celebration, and the Best of the NW Art and Fine Craft Show. We got invited to SXSW and were featured in the New York Times.

With each “Artpark “- parking the Caravan and hosting art openings and performances in unexpected places – we learned more about creating a mobile Gallery experience.  Our amazing Roadside Attractions and a host of brilliant artists loved interacting with a curious and enthusiastic public. It was exciting and a good time was had by all.

After five years of bringing the Arts to the streets, Caravan Gallery • Parlor & Roadside Attractions took some time off to focus on a new brick-and-mortar space: The ProletariYacht Club, a studio, performance space, and arts incubator. We hosted art openings, classes, and musical, dance and literary performances . A night at the PYT could include anything from a celebration of life, to audience participation multi-media events, or a stellar summertime BBQ.

In 2018 The ProletariYacht Club ended a wonderful three-year residency in The Building with many great memories and a community of cherished friends and partners.

We spent 2019-2020 regrouping, remodeling, and making art and music, then navigating a global pandemic.

So, for now, the ProletariYacht Club is going virtual in our new space, and the

Caravan Gallery-Parlor & Roadside Attraction is hosting an artist-in-residence. We’re hoping to hit the road again soon and celebrate our ten-year anniversary in July 2021! Until then, stay safe and take care of each other.

 

Make art not war.
