The artist owners talk about the last 36 years of the Blackfish cooperative on Northwest Ninth Avenue, how they will use their new, bigger space in the Otis Elevator building, and give a preview of December’s opening show, “Past is Prologue.”
This interview was recorded on November 27, 2022 on a H2n Zoom handheld recorder and engineered by KBOO volunteer Ray Bodwell. https://kboo.fm/blog/55224
From the press release:
We hope to see you all at our new space starting this December 2022! In a narrative arc made for the history books, the first show in the new gallery features one of the collective's founding members, painter Barbara Black, who puts the “Black” in Blackfish. Her invited guests, fellow painter Angela Passelacqua and mixed media sculptor Barbara Conyne, are longtime colleagues and friends for over 40 years. Their exhibition is aptly titled “What’s Past is Prologue.” It runs from November 29 to December 31, with an opening reception on First Thursday, December 1, from 6-9pm. We look forward to welcoming you to the new Blackfish Gallery then (938 NW Everett Street, just a couple blocks from our current home!
