Blue Sky 1980

Blue Sky Gallery is almost 40, and there’s a big show at the Portland Art Museum celebrating that.

Thirty-four years ago Blue Sky had it’s first BIG birthday celebration.

Back when Blue Sky Gallery turned 5, I wrote an essay for the celebratory exhibition catalog.BSCAT 1980

Recently, prompted by a Facebook post by Alberta Mayo, I was rummaging through my Blue Sky file, and I came upon the transcription of an interview that I taped on April 30, 1980 with some of the Blue Sky board. I was writing for Willamette Week and at the time the arts and entertainment section was called Fresh Weekly. So “FW” is Fresh Weekly. I don’t seem to have a published version of this. Here is is the direct transcript from the tape, done on my manual typewriter—Blue Sky thinking from almost 35 years ago.
