Keeping Portland Weird – A Matter of Artistic (And Age) Interpretation!
How does a twenty-something artist capture the essence of Portland? How about an eighty-year-old? While most agree that Portland, Oregon, is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, have you ever wondered what artists of diverse ages and backgrounds see when they paint, draw or sculpt our city?
Find out at the 2016 Celebrating Portland, a lively summer exhibition featuring a group of local artists and their beautiful, interesting, and everything-in-between interpretations of Portland.
This unique art exhibit brings together an eclectic group of artists from a variety of backgrounds and ages for a dramatic, intergenerational show celebrating the many unique and wonderful facets of Portland. The talented artists showcasing their work have inspired each other, and hope to inspire visitors, at the same time leave their mark on Portland’s internationally revered art community. The work on display includes: paintings, prints, sculptures, mix media, and installations.
