As you explore offerings in the art world at the monthly First Thursday Art Walk, be sure to swing by the Portland Center for Performing Arts where you will see a sampling of work by the artists that participated in the 2010 Portland Open Studios Tour. On view until March 31st.

The PCPA Gallery hosts quarterly art exhibits designed to integrate the work of Portland artists, galleries, organizations and curators into PCPA’s prominent venues. The series is coordinated by members of the PCPA Advisory Committee, a citizen committee appointed by the City of Portland that provides advocacy and counsel for the PCPA.

We are thrilled to be partnering with Portland Open Studios” says PCPA Executive Director, Robyn Williams, “the show offers the unique opportunity for many people who visited the open studios to see the finished products that were still in their infancy during the tour.”
