From the curator:
Touch is an exhibition featuring over 70 prints from the photography collection of Blue Sky co-founder and photographer Christopher Rauschenberg. The show was inspired by a particular image: Charles Harbutt’s 1961 photograph of a blind boy delicately touching a beam of light. This led Rauschenberg to bring together the many other works in his collection alongside Harbutt’s print that visually capture this poignant human sensory experience in its myriad forms.

Touch features photographs by the following artists:

Thomas Alleman, Catherine Angel, Talya C. Arbisser, Eugene Atget, Rich Bergeman, Cecilia Berkovic, Skyra Beveridge, Richard Brown, Jamila Clarke, Vernoll Coleman, Celeste Cottingham, Paul Dahlquist, Aristide Economopoulos, Sidney Felsen, Michelle Frankfurter, Mary Frey, Patricia Galagan, Dorothy Glenn, Alison Grippo, M Bruce Hall, Anita Hamremoen, Charles Harbutt, Phil Harris, Craig Hickman, Ann Hughes, Birney Imes III, Gwynne Johnson, Sara Kirschenbaum, Les Krims, Justine Kurland, Dorthea Lange, Robert Langham, Zun Lee, Catherine Leuthold, Holly Lynton, Robert Lyons, Chema Madoz, Heather McClintock, Julie Mihaly, Jennifer Lynn Morse, Zanele Muholi, David Pace, Gordon Parks, Keri Pickett, Ann Ploeger, Gus Powell, Romualdas Požerskis, Jana Romanova, Irina Rozovsky, Nadia Sablin, Kris Sanford, Dona Schwartz, Joshua Smith, Jan Sonnenmair, Larry Sultan, Chip Thomas, Paul Trevor, and Carol Yarrow.

In addition to the work by the above artists, during the month of September the Blue Sky community is invited to submit their own Touch photographs via their public Instagram accounts by tagging their posts with the hashtag #touchbluesky. Rauschenberg will print his favorite submissions and add them to the exhibition during the run of the show.

Christopher Rauschenberg’s Curator talk: Saturday, September 29, 3:00 PM

Christopher Rauschenberg received his BA from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. His work has been exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, the Chicago Cultural Center, the International Center of Photography in New York, and the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY, among many other major institutions. An exceptionally active leader in the Northwest arts community, he taught at Marylhurst College in Lake Oswego, Oregon for many years and co-founded Nine Gallery here in Blue Sky and photography nonprofit Photolucida, in addition to co-founding Blue Sky Gallery in 1975.
