Art Gallery

We take great pride in our space and love watching it transform with the different artists we are privileged to host. It is a true joy to provide a context for local (sometimes global) artists to share their work. We host a new artist every month and participate in the BALLARD ARTWALK every 2nd Saturday of the month from 6-9pm. 

Gallery Commission  
As part of operating a gallery space, we take a 20% commission on every piece of artwork sold. And as an expression of our gratitude, we have decided to DONATE our full commission to a different local non-profit every six months.  So when you purchase art here at Miro Tea, not only are you supporting local artists, but local non-profits as well!

From JANUARY 2012-December 2012 our entire gallery commission will be donated to Young Women Empowered.  

Who we Are and Whom we Serve:

Young Women Empowered (Y-WE) provides mentorship and empowerment programs for teenage girls in the Pacific Northwest. Annually, we serve a diverse group of 130 girls, ages 14-18, and 70 women, ages 19-70+, to build ongoing mentorship relationships; gain tools to create successful futures; participate in service and philanthropy projects; confront social justice issues; and gain leadership skills. The organization is open to girls from all walks of life. Currently, 90% of the youth are from families that recently immigrated to the USA. 85% of the youth and 50% of the adults are women of color. In addition to cultural and ethnic diversity, our youth and mentors represent a myriad of family, sexual orientation, religious, political, and educational backgrounds. Both the girls and the mentors learn that they are powerful leaders whose voices are valued and vital.

Our Mission:

Y-WE empowers young women leaders through intergenerational mentorship, intercultural collaboration, and creative programs that equip girls with the confidence, resiliency, and future-planning skills they need to achieve their personal goals and improve their communities.

Meghan Noel
Opening Night during the Ballard ArtWalk October 13th

For the month of October, Miro Tea is featuring local artist Meghan Noel. Ms. Noel is a painter, illustrator, & textile and mixed media artist working in the Northwest. 

In recent years she has chosen to focus more on her  intricate painting and illustrations. Her paintings and illustrations range from dreamy and surreal to delicate and whimsical. She seeks not to create masterpieces to grace the walls of museums, but rather to create smaller more intimate works to fit into the lives of readers and writers, poets and dreamers, mother, fathers, and everyday folk.
