Get ready, Seattle. The next two weeks are filled with art openings at museums and galleries around town. This week, Bellevue Arts Museum, The Frye and The New Foundation each have openings for exhibitions and programs that fill out the next few months.

On top of all that, there are fashion events and loads of musical performances. (The Grand Opening and Anniversary party for Standard Goods and Craft & Culture is both, as Maiah Manser will sing live in the store.) Seattle Chamber Music Society’s 2016 Winter Festival ends this weekend, and the Mostly Nordic Chamber Music Series begins! There are so many reasons to Get Out. (And look forward to next week, including our gallery guide for First Thursday Art Walk, more openings and many more events.)
