I have been invited to, and accepted to participate, in three shows this spring. I am very honored and excited about each one!
Fire on the Water: Dragon Boat Art Show is a Group Art Show inspired by The Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Races. This show was created by my friend, Alea Bone, in 2014. An amazing artist, and Dragon Boat racer, she conceptualized this show to coincide with the annual Rose Festival. This is a great show to be in! This year's show is split between two venues. One venue is right downtown by the water where the Dragon races take place, The Little River Cafe atthe Riverplace Marina 0315 SW Montgomery, The other venue is Atomic Pizza at 1936 N Killingsworth St. I have TWO pieces in this show this year, and you can find my pieces at the Atomic Pizza location. Show runs May 1st – June 30.
The next show I am doing is also very exciting for me. This is the first year I have been invited to participate in this show. The Little by Little Show is the brain child of Portland legend Chris Haberman. (The same super hero that brings us the Big 500 every year!) This show will open on Friday, June 1st in downtown Milwaukie. The art will be hung in four venues, The Beer Store Milwaukie/OneDer Gallery (10610 SE Main), Milwaukie City Hall (10722 SE Main), Wine:30 Bistro (10835SE Main), Painted Lady Coffeehouse (2045 SE Washington)
This show is going to be really fun. Show starts promptly on June 1st at 5pm, when sales begin. ALL art is $40/each, Cash/Carry, First come first buy. 200 artists. 10 pieces each, 2000 pieces. Super psyched to have been invited to paint for this.
Finally, the third show I am participating in, is one that is dear to my heart. The Recycled Rain Project Art Show. The Recycled Rain Project is a non profit organization formed by local artists to share art and to increase awareness regarding water issues. We all need clean water, people! This will be my fourth year participating, and I am always so honored that I receive an invite to be in the show. One cool aspect of the show is that the piece you submit has been made using....recycled rain water! I collect my water in mason jars during our rainy spring. There is always plenty of gorgeous art in this show. The opening for this one is June 2nd and the Ford Gallery, 2505 SE 11th Ave, Portland, 6pm -9pm. A portion of the sale of all works from RR2018 will be donated to Columbia Riverkeeper.
So, yes, I have been busy in the studio! I hope I will see your face at some of the upcoming art shows. Thanks for reading!
