Russo Lee Gallery

Russo Lee Gallery, led by Martha Lee, carries on a tradition of featuring the best artists of the Pacific Northwest region. Originally founded in 1986 by Laura Russo, the gallery has operated for over 35 years in the same space at 805 NW 21st Avenue in Portland, with convenient parking located at the back of the gallery off of Johnson Street. Russo Lee Gallery maintains its mission to represent regional artists and connect them with the local community through regular exhibitions and artists’ talks, and with a national and international audience through our website and regular communications about our exhibitions and artists. In addition to showing many of the artists and estates of those who inaugurated the gallery three decades ago, we have also welcomed successive generations of artists through the years, helping to foster Portland’s vibrant visual arts scene. We place artwork both regionally and nationally in private, public, and corporate collections, and are available to provide tours of the gallery, as well as to consult with collectors in their own spaces.

Guidelines for Artist Submissions
The Gallery is not actively seeking artists for representation. However, we do consider submissions by artists from the Pacific Northwest only (Oregon and Washington) on a rolling basis. Due to the volume of submissions, we only reply when we are interested in learning more about an artist's work.

For consideration, artists should submit the following via email:

Cover Letter
An image list detailing title, date, media and size of each piece
Images should be jpgs or pdfs no larger than 1Mb each
Professional resume or artist statement
Providing a link to your website is welcome
