Due to the drastic development changes Portland, Oregon has gone through in the last 3 years, I was inspired to start a small series reflecting on the construction and the altered urban landscape. I do feel change is inevitable and the city did need more housing, but I felt like it was done at a cost to our history and Portland’s unique culture. You can view them online here> But, also there is a chance to see the work in person. Here are two shows these pieces are in:
“Changing Landscapes of Oregon” – local artists’ interpretations of Oregon’s changing landscapes.

Artists Reception: August 31st 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM
