Portland Art Center Fundraiser

Portland Art Center, one of my favorite First Thursday stops, has been going through difficult financial times. This fall they invited interested local artists to decorate a square wood panel for a December fundraiser show. A piece of my own textile experimentation will be on display, along with ~300 other works. It should be really interesting to see what everyone created.

They’re having an opening reception tomorrow from 6-10PM, in the main gallery at NW 5th & Couch. Panels sell for $300. 75% of that goes directly to PAC, and the Henry Hillman, Jr. Foundation is providing a matching grant up to $20,000. This fundraiser will determine whether PAC can continue to operate into the new year, so I really encourage everyone to go look, and tell your friends.

  1. Congrats, Audrey the Artist!

    The PDX Panels exhibit is really awesome, so many great and varied panels. I hope it’s lucrative enough to help PAC stay open. At $300 one of those panels would make a great Christmas gift (I may just buy one for myself).
