The Arts Council of Lake Oswego (ACLO) is pleased to present A Chronicle of Life in Lake Oswego: Photography. The exhibition utilizes the City’s rich history and environs to create a visual representation of life in Lake Oswego through the medium of photography.
The history of Lake Oswego includes the rich fabric of first inhabitants, the Clackamas Tribe; agriculture and truck farms in the south; natural and open spaces along Tryon Creek and the Willamette and Tualatin Rivers; the iron industry and Iron Mountain; a thriving public art program; and the beauty of Oswego Lake that have contributed to the uniqueness of the City.
This invitational exhibition aims to represent various interpretations of the City of Lake Oswego through the medium of photography. From infrared to digitally enhanced, representative to atmospheric, a variety of interpretations and styles are represented.
The exhibition will feature three awards, one of which is a purchase for the City of Lake Oswego’s collection. “With this year’s Chronicle focused specifically on photography, we have a unique opportunity to add more diversity to the media represented in the City’s collection,” remarked Nicole Nathan, Executive Director of the Arts Council.
