We’ve just concluded Portland Open Studios, the annual tour of about 100 studios during the second and third weekends of October featuring demonstrations and other education outreach by painters, sculptors, fabric makers, pot throwers and more. I had the privilege to mentor two excellent students (one pictured here, a BFA student at Pacific Northwest College of Art). This is the first year the PDXOS education program has mentored college students.
I just returned to Portland after a fun couple days opening a show and doing some teaching in Astoria, Oregon. Many thanks to the faculty, students, and art department staff at Clatsop Community College for your hospitality, your attentiveness during the workshop, and your work hanging and lighting this group of sixteen life-sized paintings. What a great space up there in the hills! Click here for more info on the show, open until November 7.
