  • Wolff Gallery 2804 Southeast Ankeny Street Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)

February 27–April 28, 2019 
Opening reception First Friday, March 1, 2019 from 6-8 PM

Wolff Gallery is pleased to present a group show featuring new work by the members of Small Talk, a collective of seven women photographers based in Portland, Oregon.

"As a collective, we have the honor of witnessing and discussing the progression of our individual works. We find ourselves traveling along parallel paths, drawn to new directions and processes. We discover common ground in similar themes, investigating dark corners and intimate places. Here, our realities, our unverified stories, come together for a time before continuing onward. We present selections of new work from each member curated to tell a temporary fiction of rumor and truth."

Small Talk is a photography collective comprised of seven women: Audra OsborneBriana CerezoJennifer Timmer TrailKelli PenningtonKristina HruskaLeslie Hickey, and Marico Fayre. The collective formed in Portland, Oregon in 2015.

As a group, we explore the nature of what it means to be a visual storyteller, pool resources, provide support and critique, and facilitate community events and discussions. We engage in the best kind of “small talk,” that which binds us together both as a collective and within a larger community of women and minority artists, fostering stronger work and collaboration. Our first book, We’re Always Touching by Underground Wires, was published in April 2018.
