About "Nine Years | Graceful Exit" | July 5 - July 27, 2019 | Opening reception: July 11, 6 - 8pm
"It's been almost nine years since the founding of Prographica. My intention has been to exhibit the work of artists I especially admired and to help them achieve the critical and material success they deserved. I've put together "Nine Years / Graceful Exit" as both an overview and celebration of that time. While nine years is not long enough, it will have to do. With this show Prographica will make, what I hope is, a graceful exit." - Norman Lundin, Gallery Director and founder

Prographica gallery was founded in 2010 by Norman Lundin, Professor of Art Emeritus at the University of Washington. His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago, among many others. He has curated national and regional exhibitions and has had more than sixty solo shows, exhibiting at major galleries in NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC and Seattle.
The gallery began as Prographica Drawings and was located in the Madrona neighborhood for six years before relocating to historic Pioneer Square where it shared a space with Koplin Del Rio and Davidson Galleries. Prographica featured works on paper, primarily by artists of the Pacific Northwest, many of whom studied at UW. In 2013, the gallery began showing works on canvas as well, and its name changed to Prographica Gallery.
