Big 500 Opening This Saturday!

Come down to the People’s Art of Portland Gallery this Saturday, from 2-9pm, for the grand opening of the Big 500 show 2015! Bring a can of food for the food drive.

I will have five panels in the show. You can’t miss them as they are all super-3D, and they light up with portable color changing LED’s! I think of them as “abstract deep paintings with light”, but a standalone idea would be light boxes. If this goes over well, I might be convinced to make actual wireless light box sculptures that can stand on their own.

The show is pretty simple: 500 artists have created a multitude of panels for the show (some do up to 20 at a time!) and they are all for sale, cash/credit & carry, at $40 each. The panels are displayed salon style, so that all you see is the art- although the artist’s name is on the back of the panel. The overall effect means you have a chance to experience a whole range of works at once, and find those that really speak to you. It’s one of the biggest- and funnest- shows at People’s all year!

You can visit People’s on the 3rd floor of Pioneer Place Mall, in the West wing. Typically the other galleries- Mark Wooley, AIR and OneDer, should also be open for your gallery opening and shopping needs.

I will be volunteering as a gallery “floater” during the opening, so I hope to see you there and say hi!
