Newsletter: 2019 Reflections

As 2020 ramps up we want to take a moment to thank all of our staff, partners, clients, patrons and supporters. Our 22nd year in business came with many highlights to celebrate and share.We are thrilled to announce that we have launched into another branch of our business by opening the Smith & Vallee Guest House as a vacation rental here in Edison. This home was designed and curated as an extension of the creative venues of Smith & Vallee Gallery and Smith & Vallee Cabinet Makers, our sister businesses established in Edison. Original artwork from our gallery’s artists hang on the walls. All cabinetry and woodwork was custom designed and built in our neighboring woodshop. A true collaboration of what we love to do! Find us on Airbnb or to book your Edison overnight stay.

Another new frontier for Smith & Vallee was to participate in the SEATTLE ART FAIR this past summer. It was an honor to promote many of our artists to a larger audience, and we look forward to future art fairs. Look for us in Seattle July 23-26, 2020. Our gallery continues to host monthly shows and artist talks, and in addition to being open daily we have launched a sparkly new website that allows art to be purchased online and shipped. Look for updates about our January opening at

Finally, our cabinet shop continues designing, building and installing custom cabinetry throughout the North Sound region. We are grateful for the many builders, architects, designers and home owners we have had the pleasure of working with this year. Our work has been featured in several publications, including Bellingham Alive, Fine Homebuilding and Dwell magazines. Look for our booth at the SEATTLE HOME SHOW February 15-23, 2020 and the WHATCOM HOME AND GARDEN SHOW on March 6-8, 2020. Check out our website and blog for announcements and featured projects at

We look forward to seeing you in 2020!
