Solo Exhibition at University of Portland

Posted in NW Arts, Photography at 8:30 pm by Michelle

I’m thrilled to have a huge solo exhibition – 29 photos – up at the university of Portland, OR Buckley Center Gallery. This is the premier of Holga photos I made on my 2008 trip to Nepal and Thailand, both color and black and white. And it’s the largest collection of my Urban Oasis series shown to date.

Being a university building, the gallery is open long hours: M-F 8:30am – 8 pm, Sat 8:30-4, through September 23rd. There will be a closing reception on the 23rd from 5-7, but please stop by before then so you have time to enjoy the images (and who knows – there could be a freak snowstorm the night of the reception and then you’ll have missed your chance!).

Here are some photos from the opening:
