Artwork from Immigrant artists focused on their experience- that which they left behind, adjusting to a new reality, struggles to assimilate, building community in a new country.

Hope in Every Step is an exhibition sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church, Portland, Oregon under the supervision of the Visual Arts Committee.  First Presbyterian Church is a member of the 7×7 Consortium of seven art galleries in seven downtown churches.
