June 30, Monday Painters
Three of us from the Portland Plein Air Painters met up with "the Monday Painters".....on Monday! First we saw the Worksound Gallery and then we walked to 12th and Ash and painted there. Cyrus Smith is behind this project and he told us that his objective is to encourage outdoor painting and "community". From our perspective he is succeeding! We enjoyed ourselves in front of the "Three Friends Coffeehouse" with Cyrus and the other outdoor artists. We look forward to putting a piece in the show and being there for the July 11 opening!
Here is a communication from the Monday Painters:
We will meet every Monday to paint the neighborhood surrounding Worksound Gallery, located at 820 SE Alder. All paintings will go on display at Worksound Gallery for the month of July, including an opening on July 11th.
If you are interested in being part of this show, just show up at 5:30 with painting supplies. All are welcome. No experience necessary.
Mondays, June 23rd-July 21st , Worksound Gallery, 820 SE Alder, 5:30pm, NO FEES
Thanks, Cyrus...for promoting regional art!
