Dear Gallery Friends & Family,

Given the recent COVID-19 city-wide shutdowns and various restrictions put in place, we’ve had to postpone many of our upcoming monthly shows, as have most of the Gallery’s in our fair city. However, we feel this is a great opportunity to officially announce our newest exhibit called: ‘Artist On Rotation’.

In this new and permanent exhibit, whereby we will be dedicating a portion of the Gallery, year-round, as a regular fixture featuring over 20 local artists hanging over 30 individual works of art. Each piece will be available for a limited amount of time before being replaced with a new piece of work from that same Artist. Each piece will be replaced in rotation, (or as they sell). In that way, the Gallery will always have a large collection of new and constantly changing array of local art available to our consumers and art enthusiasts.

With many of the original works of art priced from $150.00 to $300.00, in many different sizes, mediums, and styles, we are sure to have something you will fall in love with that won’t break the bank. On the other hand, we are also very excited to be featuring a few very select pieces from the personal private collections of some of Portland’s most legendary and well-known local Artists, that will be sure to appeal to any of our ‘higher end’ art collectors.

Either way, whether you are a collector or a connoisseur, we are very excited about this new endeavor and feel that by promoting a consistent level of quality and diversity through multiple local artists from various backgrounds, working in a wide range of styles and mediums, producing some of the area’s finest works of art ‘on rotation’ –  we will effectively help to promote the visibility and interest in a much greater audience of talented artists and their amazing works of art, while continuing to promote the local Portland art community.

Please stay tuned…as we will soon start our ‘Resident Artist Spotlight’, where we will be featuring a new original work of art and its creator every week!

Thank you again for all your support for the Gallery and the local art community. We’re looking forward to seeing you all again in 2021…Happy Holidays!
