On Saturday, October 19, from 2-3pm, I will be at the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery, at 1237 SW 10th Ave, in Portland. The Gallery is celebrating its 60th anniversary and I will be there to share my stories. By my reckoning, I’ve been a participating artist with the Rental Sales Gallery for about 40 years. But who’s counting? I can only say that it’s been an honor to have been in this fine gallery for so many years. I love the fact that people can rent artwork and thus, build a relationship and familiarity with the art, before deciding to purchase, or not. I believe that if you can continue to find beauty and mystery in a painting after living with it for several months, it’s probably a keeper. You have found a real gem.
