Why hello there,
Yesterday I finished installing my new show, Our Own Jungle, at Tyson Gallery, in NW Portland, Oregon. It’s up! I am so happy to announce this! Lots of work went in to the production of the sculptures for this installation, and many of them have never been seen in public before!
I am including a few sneak peak photos, details… bits only.
To see the rest you’ll have to come visit. There are many more sculptures not included here, and there is really no way of conveying the entire installation with photographs.
The exhibit is at Tyson Gallery, in the Everett Station building (625 NW Everett St, in NW Portland). The Gallery itself is actually on Broadway, between Flanders and Everett. The gallery # is 116. The opening is from 6 to 9 on Thursday october 1st.
I’ll have a closing party too, but it will be a plastic bag drive, so the art may be harder to see. You should come on thursday, if you can. I know, it’s so soon! I’m so excited for you to see it!
All of the sculptures are all made from already used plastic bags. I can teach you how to turn plastic bags into yarn thing at Mission Mill Museum in Salem, Oregon – the 4th saturday of October.
And the mural is mine too. Similar to paintings that I do. And you can visit me at Portland Open Studios, the 2nd and 3rd weekends of October, in my studio, to learn how and why I paint and what I do.
Hope to see you soon.
