Well, today’s my birthday, and I’m feeling sorry for myself because my husband forgot. I want you all to know this site is a total labor of love. You can’t begin to image the hours I spend rewriting press releases, calling for clarifications, etc. If you don’t have an image, it’s probably because you don’t advertise with Art Guide Northwest. (hint, hint) However, I do write up, as time allows, all new shows whether you advertise or not. So, dear art community, this is my present to you.

Kaser, Portland sculptor and painter, works with fiber, textiles and found objects. Using dried avocado and orange skins, oak galls, oyster and egg shells, and her own recycled felts, they’re held together with wax and armatures of salvaged street-sweeper tines.

Palmer, a self taught artist since the age of 6, believes in the wonders of the exploring matter/energy and transformations. Matthew’s unique perspective and vision allow his sculptures to appear organically grown, adding the juxtaposition of time and space. The reception for the artists is from 4-7pm.
