Abmeyer + Wood Fine Art specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, and we have a particular interest in figurative ceramics and glass sculpture. We seek out artists for representation that exhibit a unique combination of talent and vision. In addition to mounting monthly exhibitions in our gallery space, we also actively seek out collectors in other regions through participation in art fairs and national advertising. We are prominently located in downtown Seattle across the street from the Seattle Art Museum and Benaroya Symphony Hall and nearby the historic Pike Place Market. Abmeyer + Wood strives to bring the best in contemporary arts to the Pacific Northwest through our roster of nationally recognized and exciting emerging artists.
Originally from the East Coast, Jonathan moved to Seattle in 2002 to attend a Master's program in art history at University of Washington where he focused on contemporary Northwest Coast Native American art. Having fallen in love with the Pacific Northwest, Jonathan decided to make Seattle his home and while in school started an internship with a local gallery. He eventually became director of that same gallery, before acquiring it in January 2012 and rebranding it as Abmeyer + Wood. Jonathan is passionate about many art forms but has a special place in his heart for abstract expressionist painting and figurative sculpture. Prior to working in the visual arts, he served as a teacher for children with special needs and ran an indie rock record label.
A native to Southern Colorado, Stevan moved to Seattle to begin a career with the local artist community. Before moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2013, Stevan graduated with his Bachelor of Arts degree from Adams State University where he doubled majored in Business Administration and Art. As an undergrad he helped produce a local literary and art publication, and was a constant fixture inside the ceramic studio. Stevan has an unbridled passion for all art forms, having worked with musicians, visual and literary artist, and he has even worked as a makeup artist. When not at Abmeyer + Wood, you can find Stevan at his neighborhood yoga studio, rock climbing, or snuggled up on the couch reading sci-fi thriller novels.
