New Paintings by Emily Winfield Martin

    Join us for an opening wine reception with the artist on Friday, October 9th at 6pm.

    Wolves & Wonders is a new series of original paintings by Martin, featuring a tender sense of magical realism, set in a world full of beauty and danger; fierce animals—tigers, wolves, lions—gathered with intense, beautiful, thoughtful women that carry on their face the stories of their own enchanted mystery.

    Emily Winfield Martin is an artist and author-illustrator of
    award-winning children’s books. Her latest book The Wonderful Things You Will Be debuted on the New York Times Best Seller list. She lives and paints here in Portland.

    The show runs October 9 - November 9, 2015.

    About The Book

    This show-all romp through design-world darling Jessica Hische’s sketchbook reveals the creative and technical process behind making award-winning hand lettering. See everything, from Hische’s rough sketches to her polished finals for major clients such as Wes Anderson, NPR, and Starbucks. The result is a well of inspiration and brass tacks information for designers who want to sketch distinctive letterforms and hone their skills. 

    With more than 250 images and metallic silver ink printed throughout to represent her penciled sketches, this highly visual book is an essential—and entirely enjoyable—resource for those who practice or simply appreciate the art of hand lettering.

    Riot Grrrl formed in reaction to pervasive and violent sexism, racism and homophobia in the punk music scene and in the culture at large. Its participants adapted strategies from earlier queer and punk feminisms and ‘70s radical politics, while also popularizing discussions of identity politics occurring within academia, but in a language that spoke to a younger generation.

  • Jenny Tiffany
    Animals & Instruments

    Opens June 5 at 6pm.
    Show runs through July 5, 2015. 

    Musical instruments come from nature. Different woods possess strength and tonal properties and metals come from minerals formed in the earth’s crust. This show explores what might happen if nature reclaimed and repurposed the musical instruments we love.

    Jenny Tiffany has had a lifelong love of wilderness and animals which has always been reflected in her art. Inspired by mid century design, vintage ephemera, nature, permaculture design, vintage musical instruments, and music, Jenny works as a freelance illustrator and designer from her Portland OR home studio.  In her spare time, Jenny plays guitar, hangs out with her chickens and remodels her mid century ranch home at the base of Rocky Butte in NE Portland that she shares with her wife.
