You should visit Vermillion in Capitol Hill. It's a small gallery and bar and they have inexpensive wine and GOOD cheese plates. : )

On the second Thursday of every month you can check out the Capitol Hill Art Walk which is a fun way to explore lots of galleries and cafes showing work in Capitol Hill. Alos in Capitol Hill is the Frye Art Museum which is free and has a really lovely gift shop. Gage Academy of Art has a Drink and Draw event every first Friday and other events as well. Also in the area is Northwest Film Forum which often has indie films and art / film installations and events. 

The Seattle Art Museum downtown is amazing if you like modern art and they sometimes have cool events too. 

The Stranger Suggests is a great resource for finding art / theater / music events happening during your visit. 

Have fun!

The others covered most of the main sites.  You might also like hanging out in Fremont Neighborhood where there is also an art walk, some galleries, and lots of places to eat and drink.

Another great resource is to pick up a copy of the Stranger (found everywhere on Capitol Hill Neighborhood and they will have a fairly complete list of what's going on now.  One last area worth mentioning that doesn't get alot of tourist traffic is the Georgetown area.  Lot of working artists and some galleries there.

SAM (Seattle Art Museum) is always good and the Sculpture garden is great. If you like Calder he has another sculpture at the Seattle Center. I would also keep your eye out for any murals with the oh Henry tag they're wonderfully weird and kinda creepy if your into that sort of thing.

The Seattle Art Museum , right downtown, is a good place to start. There's also the Chihuly Garden and Glass museum, which is relatively new. Unique Seattle sights also include the Fremont Troll and the Seattle Gum Wall at Pike Place.

 If it's a nice day a walk through the Olympic Sculpture Park is a great place for seeing outdoor sculpture art and with pretty views of the waterfront.  Its not very big so it wouldn't take up too much of your time. Its also a fun walk along the waterfront to get to it.
