Todd Tubutis of the Director of Blue Sky Gallery was our guest on Art Focus. We covered the current Robert Frank show, Painkiller. We also talked about other shows at Blue Sky and his own path to the gallery.
From the PR:
Painkiller is an original exhibition of 48 Polaroid images by groundbreaking photographer Robert Frank taken from the 1970s through the present. Blue Sky closely collaborated with Frank in selecting photographs to be reproduced in a special series of enlarged prints for this show. Considered one of the most influential figures in the history of photography, Frank has redefined the aesthetic of both the still and the moving image via his pictures and films. Blue Sky is proud to present Frank’s work again in Portland, having first shown his photographs in 1981.
