July 2017 - 22nd Annual Recent Graduates Exhibition


July brings the 22nd edition of the Recent Graduates show to Blackfish Gallery. It's an anticipated summer event that showcases some of Oregon's most gifted new makers. Thirty graduating artists, selected by the art faculties of the respective schools, present work in photography, sculpture, painting, video and more. The show offers an opportunity to viewers to see what themes resonate with millennial artists, and get a sense of how the art object may be altered going forward.

The second annual Lawrence Duckler New Arts Award will be presented to the artist whose work garners the most audience votes following First Thursday. The award comes with a $300 cash price and the opportunity for a month-long installation in Blackfish's Fishbowl window gallery.
