Eastside Artist Roster

The Bothell Arts Commission is partnering with other Eastside cities to bring you the Eastside Artist Roster. Open to artists living and working in East King County (Bellevue, Bothell, Duvall, Issaquah, Kirkland, Mercer Island, Newcastle, North Bend, Redmond, Renton, Sammamish, Snoqualmie and Woodinville*), the roster will be used by agencies for craft, public art, music and performance opportunities. 

Click here to be directed to the City of Bellevue’s registration page. They administer this program, and we are partnering with them to advance your opportunities. You will need an account to register. Once registered, you will be directed to a page that includes several opportunities. To be eligible for artist opportunities for the City of Bothell, be sure to fill out the Eastside Artist Roster application. The final question in the application is whether you’d like your roster information made available to other Eastside cities. Be sure to say “yes” so the Bothell Arts Commission knows you’re interested in partnering with us.

The City of Bothell Arts Commission will consider artists for Bothell based creative art activities such as performing arts and visual arts. For performing arts, projects may include the Friday Night Market. For visual arts, projects may include solo shows at the City Hall Gallery or pop-up and temporary public art opportunities. No commission is taken on pieces sold if selected for the City Hall Gallery. 

Pop-up public art opportunities are up to $5,000 and these opportunities are still being determined and updates will be available soon. In the meantime, click below and fill out the application so you're all set to go when we're ready to reach out to you for project proposals.
