Her Own Wings is a gallery show of femme representations of our city, by female-identified Portland artists.
The concept for the show came from show-organizers Andy McMillan’s passion for local history, and his research into the Portland Building and the statue of Portlandia.
“I have been frustrated for some time about the fact that the City tried and ultimately failed to brand Portland with a strong female figure in the early 1980s. So I’m bringing together some of my favorite local artists to try again.”
Show runs July 28 – September 3, 2018
Opening Night Friday July 28 at 6pm with many of the artists in attendance.
