This amazing new collection of work from Portland based artist Kanani Miyamoto and Jillian Barthold engages culture, relationship, space, objects and personal identity and ranges from playful landscapes to dramatic print work. These elements challenge the often mundane and overlooked concept of “Place” and how it plays a pivotal role in who we are and the relationships we have. This collection will be accompanied by print work from p:ear youth.
Also on display in the p:ear gallery in June: THROUGH OUR LENS//PhotoVoice Project Presented by Sisters of the Road
“Through our Lens” – PhotoVoice Project is an update on a project that was originally created in 2005. The original project provided individuals experiencing houselessness with photography classes and black-and-white disposable cameras in order to document their lives in a way that many others never see or consider.
As with all of Sisters’ community organizing work, “Through our Lens” – PhotoVoice Project will serve as a tool to provide a face to houselessness, so that we may decrease the “us” vs. “them” phenomenon that must be overcome in order to work together toward viable solutions. This project gave community members, who are currently unhoused, the opportunity to share their lived experiences through their own lens. It lets the photographs tell their own stories.
Opening Date: June 1st 2017
Opening Time: 5pm – 8pm
