Strange Dreams 

I made this series of inks for Strange Dreams collective show, I’ll have a couple more inks from older collections and tote bags for sale. I decided to donate 30% of the sales on this show to Voz Workers Center

Friday 30th from 6pm to 10 pm, 721 NW 9th Ave suite 200 (Ecotrust building), Portland OR.  Come have a beer, some tasty snacks, listen to some music and dance if you feel like it. The work of over 20 artist will be on the space.

Strange Dreams brings together a new collective of Portland artists showing work sparked by the confusion, anger, and surrealness of the current political climate. Perhaps you felt like you stepped into a warped reality on Election Day or Inauguration Day. Whatever the case, we are all collectively living in the same strange dream. Come grab a beer, have some tasty food, enjoy some tunes, and make your way through the beautiful space with pieces that reflect the times.

$5-10 suggested donation at the door.

 Each artist will give a portion of their proceeds to an organization of their choice.
