Artistic Portland will celebrate the flowers of May at First Thursday Gallery Art Walk between 4-6 p.m. on May 3, 2018. Landscape and collage quilts plus kimono pins by new member Alycia Allen Tolmach will be on display. Work by guest artists jewelry artist Marty Hagan and wood carver Jim Orman can now be found at the Co-op for a limited time.
Many of the member artists will be present to talk about their latest works and will encourage visitors to express their own creativity by painting a ceramic bisque-fired bowl between 2-6 pm. Georgie’s Ceramic & Clay is sponsoring by providing the raw clay and the rest will be supplied by the Co-op. Once glazed, the bowls will be fired and available for $10 with all proceeds going to the nonprofit Sisters of the Road Cafe in Old Town Portland. For nearly 40 years the cafe has been helping to feed and support the underserved in Portland.
Sponsors Royale Brewing Co. and Café Ponté will provide beer and coffee. Other light refreshments will also be offered.
Pianist John Gilmore will add to the lively ambiance with his sets.
Artistic Portland is an Artists’ Co-operative that reflects the legendary, rich and thriving PDX art scene located at 318 SW Taylor Street in the heart of downtown Portland.
