Collaboration Closed on: January 8, 2010
We're looking for artists that want to create original works based on a fun fact about Portland Oregon.  This collection will be for sale exclusively on Society6 as open-edition, giclee prints - and possibly a future group show in Portland.

Thanks to everyone who showed up last night. It was a great opening and really fun time. Here are a few snaps, more to come...
The Portland Prints Show
We're very excited to see all the great work being posted in the "Portland" Studio. Preparations are under way for the March 6th show at 19TEN Gallery in NE Portland.

Much thanks to all the artists who are participating, Mark Searcy for curating and to Blaine Fontana for helping us get set up over at 19TEN. Also thanks to our friends at Plywerk for mounting a few of the prints on their finest bamboo Plywerk and to Pinball Publishing for creating some scout books for the occasion.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone who lives in the Portland area (and beyond). This is not just an art show or a print showcase, but a chance for us to meet up and share a few tasty microbrews.

Feel free to bring anyone and everyone you know and to help spread the word. If you want to promote the wonderful prints for sale, please use this link for the Studio store:
