In recognition of Blue Sky’s 35th anniversary, original work by more than 40 artists from its Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers program will be on display at two off-site venues in downtown Portland: the ArtBar Gallery and the Office of Mayor Sam Adams at Portland’s City Hall.

Blue Sky’s “Drawers” program is a juried repository of photographs by regional photographers based in Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska. Established in 2007, the Drawers have become a popular aspect of Blue Sky’s programming at its Pearl District home in the historic DeSoto Building. Each artist in the program is represented by 10 original photographic prints housed in an archival drawer, and visitors to Blue Sky are welcome to open any photographer’s drawer to discover their work.

Photographs in both exhibitions represent some of the most interesting, beautiful, and creative imagery made by regional photographers in recent years. Blue Sky is honored to partner with both the Portland Center for the Performing Arts and the Office of Mayor Sam Adams to make these photographs even more accessible by bringing them “out of the drawers” for the public to experience and enjoy.
