You are invited to the inaugural Old Town Biennial/New Portland Painting.
Brooke Budy and I co-curated this show of emerging local painters because we wanted to see more good painting on Portland gallery walls.
The artists we have chosen are united by a passion for their medium and a dedication to the process and craft of painting.
What to expect: New work from seven emerging Portland painters
What's being served: White and rosé from local favorite Rose & Fern Wines (and some hip cheap beer, too)
Where to show up: Erickson Gallery, at 9 NW 2nd Ave, in Portland.
When it's happening: First Thursday, August 4, from 6:00 - 9:00pm. (Stay tuned for advance notice of further Biennial-related events at the gallery throughout the month of August.)
