About TAH

Tidal Artist Haven is a 501c3 Nonprofit organization which exists in Seattle, WA. Our mission is to provide a safe and welcoming community space for artists, especially those in marginalized populations such as members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, people of color, and those with disabilities. We strive to keep the Arts alive through formal and informal education and exhibition.

Our space consists of a Gallery and Studio. We teach classes in the Gallery in the evenings. We hope in the future we can obtain a kiln and local exhaust system to expand the numbers of arts we can accommodate. If you would like to help, please consider donating to Tidal Artist Haven.

Jessica Havens
Executive Director

Jessica is a queer, disabled, self-taught artist. She was raised in an artistically supportive home. In a world of chaos she excels at coordination. After a few decades of work experience in business management, internet marketing teaching and art, she felt it was time to found her dream community. Her main desire in founding TAH is to create a safe space for everyone to make art, no matter what their art might be. She has utilized her community focused mentality to help design the welcoming space we see today. Her greatest strength is community; her ability to meet people where they are, make connections, inspire and raise others up.

Rachel Setzer
Board President
Gallery Curator

Rachel helped to found TAH in 2019 and seeks to take an approach to curation that goes beyond the textureless matte white cube of traditional spaces and into the communities we serve. She leads a curation team with more than 30 years combined exhibition & curation experience, and promotes curiosity, innovation and big-picture-thinking in the gallery. Her experience as an artist and activist provides the insight, eyesight, and foresight to tell the story for our group exhibitions, solo shows, and member gallery. Meanwhile, her service dog, LilBo Puggins, helps keep TAH’s chill vibe
