IN STILLNESS/IN MOTION: solo exhibition

I'm excited to announce the opening of a solo exhibition hosted by First Presbyterian Church in downtown Portland. I wanted to do a series of smaller unframed works on painted boards, partly to save the expense of framing (and make these more affordable) and partly for the constraints of using solid-color boards and incorporating the color into each picture. The subjects are all women who work at local establishments, engaged in various tasks, mostly food preparation. The staff at Baker & Spice  and Verde Cocina were terrifically cooperative in letting me be in their space to take pictures (thanks, favorite eateries!). 

The opening is September 15 from 11:30 to one pm. The First Thursday reception is October 3 from five to eight pm.  The address is 1200 SW Alder Street in Portland. The show is open from September 15 to November 3; gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9-4, and Saturdays from 9-1.
