Theme: Black and White
A juried exhibition of black and white photography. There is often a classic, nostalgic and dynamic translation to black and white photography. Black and white has an important tradition of luminous, well-crafted and thoughtfully composed imagery. Contemporary photographers are involved in this dialog of history and tradition, but with their own modern voice, visions and aesthetics of imagery.
Juror: Blake Shell
Blake Shell is a contemporary art curator and artist living in Portland, Oregon. She is the Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Director and Curator of The Art Gym and Belluschi Pavilion at Marylhurst University, providing the artistic direction and leadership of the organization. Her curatorial work has gained regional attention and press in the Pacific Northwest, as well as a national review on Artforum.com’s Critic’s Picks. Shell is also currently a panelist for the Visual Chronicle of Portland, managed by Regional Arts & Culture Council, and a member of the Association of Art Museum Curators Marketing and Communications Committee.
