June 2 - July 2, 2005
Opening Reception June 1, 6 to 8 pm
The Elizabeth Leach Gallery is pleased to present Kurt Perschke’s Redball Project. By exhibiting the images that Perschke captured during his ten days in Portland, the show gives Portlanders the opportunity to revisit the project and celebrate our City.
The RedBall project has been to Sydney, Australia; Barcelona, Spain; St Louis, Missouri and recently Portland. The most poignant element of the RedBall is the absurdity of the scale of the balloon. It calls attention to self and place. It causes one to look anew at one's environment. The RedBall project in Portland was greeted with wonder and fun. It is a pleasure to have the artist revisit the city with the images that document the RedBall Portland on view through July 2nd at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery.
