"In December, Charles Siegfried will be presenting The Immigrant Show at Blackfish Gallery. This exhibition will showcase artworks by 30+ immigrants born outside the U.S. who were invited to respond in original words and images to the prompt: “What are your experiences living in America?” The Immigrant Show gives the immigrant and refugee communities a voice.

The artists showing work represent an array of ages, ethnicities, countries of origin and art backgrounds, giving the wider Portland community a unique opportunity to view visual and written
artwork from a diverse population that many in the Portland metro area are not familiar with."
