Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers

Blue Sky established the Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers program in 2007 to feature a juried, public archive of original prints by contemporary photographers based in the region. The Drawers program has quickly become a favorite aspect of Blue Sky’s ongoing programming, featuring original prints by more than 60 artists based in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. The Drawers is a year-long exhibition, changing every April to coincide with Portland Photo Month,  and available to approximately 25,000 visitors annually.

The Call for Entry for the Drawers is sent out in the fall with a deadline for submissions near the end of December. Join our mailing list to stay informed about this and other Blue Sky news and events.
