Tonight was the First Thursday monthly event here in Portland, Oregon. Galleries in the Pearl and Downtown stay open late making it easier for people to visit and become familiar with the art being produced today. Some galleries still serve refreshments and food although not as many as five or six years ago. The last gallery we were in was at PNCA on Johnson and 13th.
It's always intriguing to see what's happening there ~ always something extremely impressive. Here the art is reaching out to touch you, literally and figuratively.
