February 7 – March 2, 2014
Opening reception: Friday February 7, 6 – 9 p.m.
Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to announce the exhibition Fresh AiR: Newspace Artist in Residence Exhibition containing a selection of work from the six photographers who were Newspace Artists in Residence from 2012 and 2013.
These photographers were selected for one-month residencies at Newspace Center for Photography during which time they received access to the Newspace facilities and guidance from the staff. Residents spent their time working on ongoing projects or creating something brand new. This opportunity afforded them the time and space to think and immerse themselves in their own creative process as well as to engage with the Portland photography community. Resident artists also served as a source of inspiration and guidance for the many students and photographers who create and learn at Newspace.
To document the work created by these six talented artists, Newspace is happy to announce the release of an accompanying photo-book containing selections from the work of each resident along with an essay by Hannah Frieser. Copies will be available for sale at the Opening Reception and throughout the display of the exhibition. The publication is part of the Indie Photobook Library.
