Portland is a city to love. How can you not love Portland? Whether a Native Portlander or an entrenched Oregonian transplant, the City is our home and this month at People’s Art of Portland, regional artists respond to the themes of Love and Portland.
To us, art is a huge part of what makes up Portland culture; its people, and the appreciation and LOVE for all things Portland.
As former joint curators of the LOVE show in past years, we started this Love of Portland show in 2012 because we wanted to express local artist’s response to the themes of LOVE and PORTLAND – two ideas that are part of a lot of themed art, but even more local and centered on a subject we live and breathe every day. From tattoos, bikes and bridges, to themes of Portlandia and food carts, this show reflects a “People’s” view of what is Portland, from an artist’s perspective.
Feature Love of Portland Artist – The legacy of Gary Houston:
This month we feature the work of Portland based print icon, Gary Houston, well known locally as the “Blues Fest” poster artist of Portland and for his illustration company, Voodoo Catbox. Posters at Voodoo Catbox are pretty much hand-made using traditional methods (i.e. scratch board illustration or hand cut rubylith, and then hand pulled). .
Mr. Houston will also be issuing a limited edition SPECIAL PRINT just for the Love of Portland at the opening. Gary lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
Always All Ages. In league with Pioneer Place Galleries – Pioneer Place Mall. (Peoples Art of Portland, Place, and Mark Woolley Gallery at Pioneer).
Refreshments provided by Burnside Brewing, and Pabst.
