This month, we also continue the celebration of our new name and 30 years representing northwest artists, with Variations: 30 Years, featuring more recent work by our gallery artists.
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 30 years in the same space at 805 NW 21st Avenue in Portland. 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.
