Mariane Ibrahim Gallery was a very distinct and distinguished presence in the Seattle art scene. Run by the eponymous Mariane Ibrahim-Lenhardt, the gallery mainly focused on contemporary art made by African artists from around the world. In the past few months here in Seattle, they've shown Zimbabwean artist Kudzanai Chiurai and South African artist Alexandra Karakashian. The gallerist—who grew up in both Somalia and France—is also a huge player in global art fairs, taking home the first Presents Booth Prize at New York’s Armory Show in 2017 for showing the work of German Ghanaian artist Zohra Opoku. Come by and say goodbye!
