Blackfish Gallery's 30th Anniversary Exhibit
During the month of April 2009, Blackfish Gallery hosts its 30th Anniversary exhibit featuring work by current artist/members. The show opens Tuesday, March 31st and continues through Saturday, May 2nd. An opening reception will be held on First Thursday, April 2nd from 6-9 pm at the gallery.
April marks the 30th anniversary of Blackfish Gallery. Since its inception Blackfish has been one of the most enduring and successful cooperative art galleries in the United States. Fully owned and operated since 1979 the gallery has always remained dedicated to the highest standards of excellence in both selection and presentation of works of art. The gallery continues to have a strong regional reputation for showcasing challenging contemporary work by its own artists as well as invited guests. Each of the projects to which Blackfish makes a commitment is designed to support its three goals as stated in its mission:
To seek out and present outstanding visual art within the context of thought-provoking ideas.
To provide a forum and venue for artists creating unique work that may exist beyond retail and commercial boundaries.
To reach for a broader and more diverse audience by continuing to program exhibitions and events with themes having significance for a wide cross section of our community.
