About On the Ledge

Now in its fourth year, Blanchet House’s On the Ledge art show aims to generate funding to support both Blanchet House’s services to the houseless community and local artists.

Artists in Portland and beyond are invited to submit original works of art or existing works to display in the show. Accepted art will be displayed in an online gallery during the month of August and an opening reception will also provide a space for artists to publicly display their work and garner community support.

Prints of all art will be available for sale to the public the entire month of August at 50% of each sale will benefit the Blanchet House and 50% goes to the artist. Our printer will produce giclee prints at the close of sales. After, Blanchet House staff will ship prints to buyers.

On the Ledge is an initiative of Blanchet House’s Emerging Professionals Board, comprised of compassionate supporters working to offer aid to people in Portland. The board serves to diversify the community which supports Blanchet House. Equally important is furthering its mission through education, community engagement, and access.

Through the art show, we hope to offer a welcoming space to reflect and connect while introducing the mission of Blanchet House to a new audience.
