The gallery's History

Barbara Jean Keith starts Gallery Mack

In 1974, life moved Barbara to Tempe, Arizona where she began her decade's long career as an art dealer.

Barbara's career path led her to Carmel, California, opening a successful small gallery; eventually leading to a larger space. Barbara's business acumen was rewarded when she sold that business and relocated back to Washington State, the place where she wanted to spend her life.

Gallery Mack opened in Bellevue, moved to Pioneer Square in 1979 and in 1984 settled near the Pike Place Market, where the gallery Barbara created as "a positive environment for people to come enjoy art at a gallery without high pressure" is open today.
