April is Portland Photo Month!

This month’s post was contributed by 23 Sandy Gallery.

Venture out, learn about, and celebrate Portland’s citywide focus on photography!

Please join us to celebrate Portland Photo Month. Across the city art galleries and other arts venues and  organizations will celebrate the art, history and practice of photography during the second annual Portland Photo Month. Throughout the month of April,  join us for the many events that will dot our great city.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR THEN.HERE.NOW

THEN. NOW. HERE. is a celebration of photography as a unique medium and tool that can help us explore and examine who, and where, we are. The premise is simple: folks from all across town answered a call for entries for photographs of Portland and its people, THEN or NOW. We invited a guest juror, Raymond Meeks, to curate a slideshow from these images. This slideshow will then be projected at various outdoor spaces in different quadrants of Portland as a public art event.

Confirmed dates/times for THEN.NOW.HERE. projections are listed below. All slideshows will run in a loop for at least one hour, beginning at sunset (roughly 8-9 pm)

Friday, April 6th: Newspace Center for Photography, 1632 SE 10th

Friday, April 20th: “The Meadow” at Beam and Anchor, 2710 N. Interstate Ave. (rain or shine)

Continuous projection will also run throughout the month in the window television at Blue Sky Gallery, 122 NW 8th.

More screenings to be added at the web site as they’re confirmed. Check event dates, times and locations on the Then.Now.Here website.

Photolucida‘s bi-annual portfolio reviews festival might only last three days, but all of April presents a feast for Portland’s photography lovers. The lectures, gallery walks, and reviews themselves, where a plethora of mid-career artists gather to network and receive feedback, are just the tip of the iceberg. Galleries all over the city are exhibiting photography this month- maybe you saw some on First Thursday! The PADA galleries are offering an incredible array of landscapes, portraits, documentaries, narratives, and processes. Take a look:
