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.
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.
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.
