Colby Nichols of Creative Director at Jolby & Friends and the Father of Noodle Buddies is coming to our booth at the Mississippi Street Fair this Saturday, July 14th from 10am to 6 pm with a brand new project.

He’s created, drawn, named and signed over 100 different ramen illustrations and created a custom, human-powered vending machine booth to sell them out of.

Without giving away too many spoilers, you can see his sketches of this TARDIS-like device in these secret plans we obtained from Noodle Buddy HQ.


Yard Sale Time!

Not only are we hosting the fabulous Noodle Buddies, but we’re also doing our great annual Yard Sale. All year we collect all our seconds, our slightly damaged books, bent-eared cards and shirts and on Saturday of street fair we put ’em all on a table and sell them at HUGE DISCOUNTS.

We’ll be offering shirts for SEVEN DOLLARS each, or two for ten bucks! We’ve got books and journals all at least 50% off and some up to 80% off! We’ve got notecards and stickers as low as 50¢.

Here’s faithful Land Gallery staffer and artist extraordinaire Molly Mendoza pricing down books right now as I write this, going crazy with red dots and a sharpie. She can’t be stopped ladies and gentleman. She won’t be stopped. So come on out Saturday, July 14th from 10am to 6 pm and grab some Noodle Buddies and insane discounts.




We’ve re-stocked our selection of framed prints in the gallery. Unlike most of our shows, this one is grab-and-go. See one you like? Great, take it downstairs, pay for it, and leave with some great art. We’ll be continually adding new pieces and restocking throughout the season, so swing by.


Come and see the work of over 60 graphic design students at the annual Good Market upstairs in the gallery.

Good Market is the Portland State University Friends of Graphic Design’s amazing holiday market featuring one of a kind goods from PSU Art + Design students!

Here you can find: art prints, holiday cards, zines, posters, jewelry, buttons, stickers, and much more – all available for sale directly from the artists.

Come and find them on December 2nd and 3rd at Land Gallery from 10-7!



We’ll be on hand with Adam K. Kurtz as he reads from my new book THINGS ARE WHAT YOU MAKE OF THEM in the lobby of the Ace Hotel in downtown Portland. 
DRY Sparkling is sending us free drinks and Land staff will be on hand to sell books to be signed.

Adam describes the event as “It’ll be really cute and low key so come by and hang out and let’s talk about the fun anxiety that comes with ‘being a creative’ and ‘trying to make things.'”

Come on out, meet Adam and hear about his great new book. Can’t make it? You can pickup your copy online at our sister shop
