On the Ledge

An Annual Art Show to Benefit Blanchet House and Artists

Blanchet House’s On the Ledge art show is a unique annual art show focused on local artists and helping people experiencing homelessness in Portland. It’s an opportunity to purchase limited edition prints from mostly local artists. In addition, the show helps introduce the mission of Blanchet House to a new audience. Mostly, people looking for ways to support the houseless community in Portland.

Through this art show, Blanchet House’s Emerging Professionals Board offers a welcoming space to reflect and connect. This year’s theme is Comfort Food. With this in mind, we invite artists to submit original or existing works of art to bring attention to food insecurity and housing instability.

On the Ledge Art Show

50% of each sale will benefit the Blanchet House and 50% goes to the artist. PushDot Studios will produce giclée prints at the close of sales. After, Blanchet House staff will ship prints to buyers.  An in-person event in August will also provide a space for artists to publicly display their work and garner community support.

Furthermore, OTL is hosted by the Blanchet House’s Emerging Professionals Board. The board serves to diversify the community which supports Blanchet House. Equally important is furthering its mission through education, community engagement, and access. Consequently, as we confront the compounding effects of COVID-19 and Portland’s housing crisis. We’re highlighting the devastating problems of food insecurity and housing instability through art. The theme for this year’s art show and online sale is “Comfort Food.”
