Please join us Friday, October 18 for our 20th Anniversary Benefit as we celebrate photography and our programs. To mark our 20th anniversary as a non-profit organization, the auction component of the evening will highlight diverse and spectacular photography related to the Pacific Northwest. Dine, celebrate photographers, and contribute to our future alongside a community of collectors, advocates, and partners.

The works will also be on display in our gallery September 20–October 16 in an exhibition. Featuring works spanning from Imogen Cunningham to Isaac Layman, this exhibition touches on the history and future of our medium and our region. Other highlights include books by Lee Friedlander and Chuck Close; Jim Marshall’s portrait of Jimi Hendrix; recent video work by Susie Lee; prints by Michael Kenna, Jock Sturges, and Burt Glinn (a 1953 photograph of members of the Seattle Tubing Society in full float!), to name just a few.

Join us on October 8th for a conversation on collecting photographs.
