A taxicab just says "City" like nothing else.
Any outing in Portland seems to turn into an Art-thing! I thought I'd share today's coffee house excursion with you. This is a favorite place: Stumptown (on Division).
At first glance, I thought the art on display was somehow drawn directly on the walls.
But as I got closer I realized that what I was looking at was fabric, like netting...with delicate designs sewn into it. So beautiful!
The artist statement on the wall indicated that the art is "freehand embroidery" in tulle.
Emily Katz called her show: In Dreams. Perfect, because the work is so pale and uncertain ....just like a dream.
