February 2009


Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to present our annual themed exhibition. This year’s theme is Flora & Fauna. The exhibition brings a diverse array of regional, national, and international photography to Portland and provides exposure for talented emerging and mid-career artists.

From over 300 entries and close to 2,000 individual images, Newspace Program Director Laura Valenti has chosen 32 images from 26 artists for this year’s themed show. The images selected celebrate the beauty and mystery of the plants and animals we share our lives with.

First, Second, and Third place winners will be awarded, as well as a “Gallery Goer’s Choice Award.”
