The Eclipse Show, curated by Christopher Rauschenberg

Blue Sky is celebrating the total eclipse of the sun in Oregon on August 21, 2017 with a special exhibition curated by Blue Sky co-founder and photographer Christopher Rauschenberg.

“If you picture a photographer at work, you are likely to picture them moving side to side while looking through the camera—trying out various compositions with various combinations of foreground objects eclipsing the background ones. “Eclipsing” is a primary aspect of photography but it’s not part of people’s understanding of the medium. If you don’t notice something unless it makes the sun go dark in the daytime, maybe you’re really not paying attention as much as you might.

“If this exhibition tempts you into occasionally closing one eye and playing with lining things up and eclipsing, then I’m happy. The world is, among other things, a visual playground and play is always important work.”

The Eclipse Show features photography by the following artists:

Blake Andrews, Jacob Aue Sobol, Karl Baden, John Baldessari, Steve Beckly, Deborah Bergman, Matt Black, Romain Blanquart, Laurie Blakeslee, John Bridges, Anja Bruehling, Jason Burch, Catherine Cameron, Lucy Capehart, Kristin Capp, Caleb Charland, Jo Ann Chaus, Alexander Chekmenev, John Chervinsky, Adrain Chesser, Vince Cianni, Larry Clark, Jamila Clarke, Paul Dahlquist, Kris Davidson, Rocio de Alba, Desiree Edkins, Matt Eich, Adam Ekberg, Elliott Erwitt, John Faier, Gloria Baker Feinstein, Bill Finger, Dean Forbes, Klaus Frahm, Robert Frank, Patricia Galagan, Ingeborg Gerdes, Kevin German, Joseph Glasgow, Carole Glauber, John Gossage, Lauren Grabelle, Michael Hall, Bob Haft, Aaron Hartzell, Stewart Harvey, Craig Hickman, Ann Hughes, Rachel Hulin, Carol Isaak, Megan Jacobs, John Jerard, Tom Jimison, Matt Kallio, Denise Keim, George Kelly, Ann Kendellen, Katrina Kepule, Sara Kirschenbaum, Les Krims, Laurie Lambrecht, Robert Langham, Susan Lapides, Jason Larkin, J.K.

Christopher Rauschenberg received his BA from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. His work has been exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, the Chicago Cultural Center, the International Center of Photography in New York, and the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY, among many other major institutions. An exceptionally active leader in the Northwest arts community, he taught at Marylhurst College in Lake Oswego, Oregon for many years and cofounded Nine Gallery here in Blue Sky and photography nonprofit Photolucida, in addition to cofounding Blue SkyGallery in 1975.
