A Gallerist Who's Shattering Assumptions

Sarah Traver, director of Traver Gallery, wants to change the way people think about glass art.



One positive thing i can say is that I appreciate Sarah's honesty - that the best part of her job is working with artists. It's too bad she doesn't equally favor patrons. Sarah treats visitors to the gallery more as annoyance than as a potential client. Gallery staff that do favor clients don't seen to last long. If the gallery were more welcoming we'd come more often and spend more money.


I think most clients, artists and gallery visitors would view the Traver Gallery as a place of welcome rather than disregard. This welcoming spirit is something that most galleries in Seattle do as a matter of course in comparison to almost any other major city. Sarah has always seemed warm, smart and friendly. Thanks for this profile.
