The TK has fast become a one stop venue for gallery goers on First Thursdays, Pioneer Square’s Artwalk event. Galleries and Work-only studio tenants open their doors to hundreds of visitors each month. To learn more about First Thursday, and how to market your gallery or studio business, visit the Pioneer Square Community Association’s official First Thursday web site.


The TK is home to 50 artists and their families, plus 2 dozen or more commercial arts related organizations and venues. Opportunities for networking, exposure, and making long lasting connections with other artists and art professionals abound here, as well as a welcoming spirit.

The Vandenbrink Community Room (VCR)

Since the TK opened in 2004, our community room has hosted exhbits, performances of all kinds, community and group meetings, and even political fund raisers. It is located in the residential lobby entrance to the building and holds 110 people. The VCR features a kitchenette, bathrooms, and track lighting for exhibits. It will eventually be fitted with a sprung floor for dance performances. All tenants of the TK are welcome to use the VCR for non-commercial events. Non-residents are also welcome to use the VCR, though this usually involves a fee. Contact Doug Vann for details.
