Artist Registry Application

The Community of Artists and this registry is a service for both emerging and well-established artists in our local area and a resource for the public, art patrons, art curators, and galleries or museums who wish to connect with local artists. If the artist is not already in our Community web pages, then applying for a registered web page with Northwind can provide a location that web search media can find. This service helps fulfill the mission of Northwind Arts Center.


This free service is available to area residents including artists from the upper Olympic Peninsula, Kitsap Peninsula, and Whidbey Island.

Every registered artist is represented on a group entry page that has image and name links to each individual artist. The individual artist pages display all of the information provided by the artist on the application form.

Northwind Arts Center does not endorse or represent the artists listed in the Artist Registry. Artists included in the Registry are responsible for ensuring the information in their listing is accurate and current. Necessary changes to a registered artist page content can be sent to the Webmaster at Each artist's application is subject to review by the staff of Northwind Arts Center and inclusion in the website is at their discretion.
