Established in 1979, Blackfish Gallery is owned and operated by artists who represent a rich cross-section of the Oregon art community. One of our artists is always present during business hours, giving gallery visitors a rare opportunity to discuss current offerings with the individuals who create them. Visitors new to the city will find the gallery conveniently situated in the Pearl District: a cultural, culinary, and retail hub of Portland.

In addition to monthly art exhibits, Blackfish hosts a wide variety of events, including artists talks, panel discussions, site-specific installations, theater performances, and literary readings. The Gallery also hosts guest artists in our Fishbowl gallery, a street-facing window space viewable 24-7. 

We invite you to visit us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You may also subscribe to receive information on upcoming and current exhibitions and other gallery news. We welcome your inquiries!
