Volunteering at Peoples!

I am proud to announce that I have taken on a part time volunteer position at Peoples Art of Portland Gallery!

Curated by local art rock star Chris Haberman, and co-managed by Jason Brown of Po’ Boy Art, the gallery is located on the top floor of the Pioneer Place Mall in downtown Portland. Since its debut, they have had many wonderful shows, with fun and lively opening nights typically on the third Saturday of the month. There are now several more galleries open next door, including the relocatedMark Wooley Gallery, putting P-town on the map for having a mall with its very own independent art scene!

The current show up at People’s is an EMEK one-man rock n’ roll poster & graphics exhibit, complete with special viewing rooms for some of the more unusual items. This exhibit will change over in October to a new seasonally themed show, so make sure to catch a view of EMEK before he goes away.

You can see the upcoming events schedule for People’s Art on the gallery website, here, or on the Facebook page, here.

I hope to have some work up in the gallery in at least some of the upcoming October-December shows, and to have some additional small pieces on sale in the “merchandise” area.

I will tenatively be at the gallery on a few Thursday afternoons per month, and some Saturdays-definitely plan to attend opening nights where I can. Come by and say hello- and help spread the word about supporting local Portland art!


Feminist Themed Art Night

The feminist show at Gallery Mini on October First Thursday was well attended, and generated some truly diverse and thought provoking work. I was happy to be included!

You can now see photos from the show on the Facebook event page, here.
