We are committed to representing Captive Artists™ specializing in every type of art - Paintings, Sculpture, Hand-Crafted Jewelry, Fashion, Accessories, Music, Theatre, Dance - every form of Art that prisoners create as a means to create light and hope out of their circumstance.

At A Touch of Light we just know that Seattle is the city to feature Captive Art™ designed and created by prisoners from all around the world. Here's why!

Seattle is home to over 100 unique and spectacular art gallaries featuring the work of artists from all around the world. Seattle is also home to the Seattle Art Museum, housing a collection of over 25,000 works of art and sculpture. 

And that's not all! The Seattle community thrives on finding and showcasing new and unique programs and exhibitions of Art, Music, Theatre, Dance, and so much more! Home to over a dozen consulates and a bustling International community, Seattle is truly the "Gateway to Asia", and is a must-see stop for Art & Culture lovers from every part of the United States, Asia, Europe, and beyond.

Seattle is also home to the Pike Place Market, one of the oldest continuously operated public farmers' markets in the United States, hosting over a hundred vendors and shops offering Food and Art in every form imaginable. This iconic feature of the Seattle waterfront receives more than 10 million visitors annually, making it the most popular tourist destination in Seattle, and the 33rd most visited tourist attraction in the world.
