Add yourself to the Artist Roster!

The Spokane Arts artist roster is a searchable tool designed to showcase local creatives and connect them with community members seeking artists and makers. People can browse the entire roster to discover a new favorite artist or filter by the type of work they’re seeking. Artists can share samples of their work, a description of what drives them to create and links to check out their website or social media.

If you’re an artist in the Spokane area, you can submit your information to be included on the roster! This is a free resource designed to support the local creative community. Submit your information here to be added to the roster. Please note: the artist roster is a free resource directory to find artists. Any local artist can add their information. The artists on the roster are not endorsed or represented by Spokane Arts.
