thank you for joining us!
InkBodySkinPaint+Fire Opening reception
Over 200 friends and art lovers joined Owen Carey and me for our Preview Reception and First Thursday Opening of InkBodySkinPaint+Fire last week. Thank you. It was a blast.

And a special thank you to Katie Watkins and Samuel Pederson of the performance troupe Risk/Reward who posed as talking, tattooed artist models on First Thursday. The art was not just on the walls. It was also projected by these two exceptional performers who added their fertile imagination and creativity to the evening.

InkBodySkinPaint+Fire continues at Gallery 114 Thursday-Sunday, noon-6:00pm, through March 30.
he talks too!
If you have seen any of Owen's portraits of Fuse Ensemble Theatre's Rusty Tennant you will know that they have no problem projecting their theatrical personality through expression and body language. . .but now we get to experience the whole package.

In The Importance of Being Frank, Rusty presents a one-person show that distills years studying Shakespeare's sonnets to introduce us to a Bard cleansed by centuries of queer erasure and straight washing. At Gallery 114 this Saturday, March 16 at 4:00pm.

Donations to support Fuse Ensemble Theatre accepted.

words from the street
Street Roots
Street Roots vendors are thought of by many Portlanders as reserved and polite corner institutions. It is not well known that many of these men and women are, in fact, literary artists.

In The Invisibility of Visibility, the gallery will host readings by members of the Street Roots vendors community. Come hear their use of prose, poetry and imagination to express—much like the subjects in InkBodySkinPaint+Fire—their experiences, dreams and longings. Meet a creative side of your vendor that you may never have known about. At Gallery 114 Tuesday, March 26, 6-7:30pm.

The Invisibility of Visibility is co-sponsored by Gallery 114, Street Roots, Pearl District Neighborhood Association, the Pearl District Business Association, and the Old Town Neighborhood Association.

All are welcome to this free event.
