Representing PADA in Portland’s Eastside Arts District for the last four years, 23 Sandy Gallery is a must-visit destination on First Friday. Gallery director Laura Russell’s passion for paper and book arts informs her curation and inventory in a profound way: While photography, painting, and collage are not uncommon to find at 23 Sandy Gallery, artist books form the backbone (or spine, so to speak) of its scope. One of only four galleries in the nation that maintains a commitment to this medium, 23 Sandy Gallery represents over sixty artists and acts as an indispensable resource for museums and libraries around the world. Stop by this sunny space and you’re “bound” to be inspired!
