PORTLAND, Ore. – Where will visual art take us in the next decade? A glimpse of the future can be gleaned this month at Blackfish Gallery as some of Oregon’s newest and most gifted makers unveil their work in the 21st Annual Recent Grads Showcase.
Thirty graduating artists, selected by the art faculties of their respective schools, present work in photography, sculpture, painting, artist books and more. The show offers an opportunity for viewers to see what themes resonate with millennial artists (feminism, sexuality, identity, relationships, the grocery store as metaphor, to name a few) and get a sense of how the art object may be altered going forward.
Blackfish organizes and sponsors the recent grads exhibition each year because it is committed to supporting arts education and providing a springboard for Oregon’s emerging artists.
