I’m excited to announce that I just reserved my spot in the upcoming First Thursday Street Galleries! For those of you that don’t know, First Thursday happens on the first Thursday of the month and is when the galleries of the Pearl district have art receptions and stay open later into the evening. This makes for a great art viewing, wine drinking, gallery hopping night in Portland. The street gallery is exactly that: a gallery in the street that happens on First Thursday. They close off three blocks in NW Portland on 13th street between Hoyt and Kearney from 5 to 10 pm and local vendors with handmade and original artwork sell their work to the gallery hopping crowd.
The street gallery happens the first Thursday of every month from April until November. I will probably not be set up for April because I thought it would be wise to attend as a patron so I could observe how people set up their spaces and displayed their work to get ideas. However, I plan to be there every First Thursday from May until November, so if you’ve ever wanted a chance to browse all my paintings in person and bring one home for yourself this would be the venue to do it! My booth will be on the corner of 13th and Johnson by the PNCA building on the east side. Hope to see people there when the weather gets nice!
