Matter is a new gallery in Olympia, Washington featuring artworks that incorporate recycled, reclaimed, and responsibly harvested materials. We opened for business September 24th with 60 participating artists. We primarily focus on regional artists - and also represent select artists from other parts of the country. We are on the hunt for artists anywhere who create unique and beautiful works using repurposed materials.
The artworks at Matter are created using a remarkable (and often surprising) compilation of materials, distinctive in design and function. We offer more functional pieces than you typically see in a gallery - allowing clients to insert art into all aspects of their lives. When you visit the gallery, you'll be encouraged to discuss what you like and don't like about different mediums, styles, and artworks. We want to hear what you are envisioning. If you don't find what you’re looking for, we'll see if we can’t conjure up
something that meets your needs
We're downtown Olympia on Fifth Avenue, just a few storefronts west of Capitol Way, two blocks east of Capitol Lake. We're surrounded by excellent restaurants and shopping opportunities. We’re in a great spot and look forward to becoming an important part of the community.
We moved! Come see our beautiful, new space at 422 Washington St SE in the historic Capitol Theater Building.
We are proud to exclusively feature artists creating fine and functional art made from reclaimed and sustainable materials. We represent more than 100 artists creating sculpture, paintings, furniture, lighting, jewelry, garden art, and metalwork. Most – but not all – of our artwork is online. Anything recently delivered or expected to sell quickly may not be posted. Please enjoy your online shopping experience. If you have questions about artists or artwork, don’t hesitate to email or call! And if you’re anywhere near Olympia, Washington… for heaven sake, get in here!
