2013 Pacific NW Photography Viewing Drawers

Beginning on First Thursday, April 4, 2013 and coinciding with Portland Photo Month, 68 regional artists will each debut 10 original photographic prints or objects from a single body of work to as part of Blue Sky’s Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers program.

On view through March 2014, the complete list of photographers includes:

Bobby Abrahamson * Jody Ake * Troi Anderson * Adam Bacher *Raymond Bidegain * Scott Binkley * Nancy Butler * Michael Cardiello * Brad Carlile * Adrain Chesser * Teresa Christiansen * Kevin Clark * Larry Clark * Susan de Witt * Hal Gage * Clarke Galusha * Raethel Geary * Richard Gehrke * Nicole Gelinas * Barbara Gilson * Joseph Glasgow * Lauren Grabelle * Edward Hamilton * Kate Harnedy * Stewart Harvey * Zane Healy * Carol Isaak * Ryota Kajita * John Kane * Bob Keefer * Ann Kendellen * Angelina Kidd * Heidi Kirkpatrick * Tarrah Krajnak * Bonnie Landis * Larry Larsen * Frank Lavelle * Jim Leisy * Stuart Allen Levy * Fritz Liedtke * Jim Lommasson * Stuart McCall * Robbie McClaran * George Olson * Robert Pallesen * Stepanka Peterka * Alexis Pike * David Pollock * Douglas Prior * Christopher Rauschenberg * Mark Reid * Jenny Riffle * Jim Riswold * Rich Rollins * Paul Romaniuk * Michael Sell * Brandon Sorg * Andrew Stanbridge * Travis Stanton * Elizabeth Stone * Mary Stroud * Jonathan Taylor * Michael Van Buskirk * Terri Warpinski * Kevin Wildermuth * David Wyatt * Carol Yarrow * Kristin Zabawa * and selected photographers from the Portland Grid Project

Jurors Diana Millar and Ed Marquand selected this group from more than 160 submissions to a free call for entries by photographers currently working in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. Both were equally impressed by the diversity of subject matter as well as the quality of technique apparent among this year’s cohort of artists.

“Seeing ten images by each photographer gave us a good idea of a consistency of vision and a sense of breadth of creative ambition. I’m pleased by the group we ended up with, and look forward to seeing the pieces in person. The diversity of approaches, techniques, and artistic interests reveals a rich photo culture in the Northwest–but I’m not going to claim that any Northwest style exists. Dedicated artists doing their work. That’s what these photographers are up to.” – Ed Marquand

“While the geographic distribution of the participants covered thousands of miles, ranging from the rough Alaskan tundra, down through the lush green forests of British Columbia and Orgeon, and east to the mountains of Montana, a common theme emerged from many of the photographers who submitted to the Drawers: the exploration of the local. I’m encouraged to see many of the submissions looking at the ‘local,’ their images telling stories that are close to home. By doing so, this invokes a deeper investigation that is rich and deliberate, thus inviting the audience into their world and proving that the still photographic image can still be a powerful storytelling medium.” – Diana Millar
