Pacific NW Drawers Artist Talk
with O'Hara Shipe and Nolan Streitberger
All Blue Sky events and programs are free and open to the public.

Join us for a special afternoon with artists O'Hara Shipe and Nolan Streitberger as they speak about their photo series currently on view in Blue Sky's 2017 Drawers exhibition. Both artists have created bodies of work that disrupt stereotypes of women and girls and tell important stories that are often eclipsed by dominant cultural narratives. In Shipe's series, Beyond the Game: Defining the Female Athlete, she provides visual space for her subjects to unabashedly present themselves to the world as they want to be seen, while Streitberger's photo essay following his 6-year-old daughter's daily summer activities highlights her delightfully unselfconscious strength, independence, defiance, and playfulness.

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.
