It’s that time of year to stress about what to buy your friends and family for the holidays. I have a solution. Get them some charming artwork of people with boxy looking heads drawn, inked, painted, or screen-printed by yours truly. If you’re like me, you procrastinate ’til the last minute, but don’t you worry, there is still time. There are 3 places in Portland you can find me.
1.) Jam On Hawthorne
2239 SE Hawthorne Blvd. Portland, OR 97214 // Open Weekdays 7:30am-2:30pm; Weekends 7:30am-3pm
This month, on the walls at Jam, there is an array of artwork from different artists. Everyone who showed this year was invited back to be apart of a group show for the month of December. The work I’m showing is brand new, and best of all, affordable. Jam is a great place, good food and friendly people. Check it out!
2.) Benjamin Benjamin
1720 NW Lovejoy #102 Portland, OR 97209 // Hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-5, Saturday 10-2
I have some old prints chillin’ in the gallery. They are original limited prints that I screen-printed myself. They haven’t been cut or cropped, so you can trim them down to a size that fits your needs best. Also, while you’re there, take a gander at the Print Show taking place right now. And if you’re from out of town, it’s okay. You can shop online! Pay Benjamin Benjamin a visit. Good people. Good gallery.
3.) The People’s Art of Portland
3rd floor of Pioneer Place Mall // 700 SW Fifth Avenue Portland, Oregon 97204
Four galleries called The Settlement recently emerged on the 3rd floor of the Pioneer Place Mall, one of those galleries, The People’s Art of Portland (run and curated by Chris Haberman and Jason Brown), invited me to be apart of the project and I couldn’t be happier. There will be an exhibition open to the public this Saturday, Dec. 18th from 6 PM to 10 PM. As soon as I find out more details I will post them. I’m excited about the show. Check it out, folks!
