Dick Blick has opened a grand new store in Portland’s Pearl District, and to celebrate they have events planned January 25th through February 5th. While this store doesn’t have every item in their extensive catalog, what they DO carry is impressive.

To honor Oregon Society of Artists and Watercolor Society of Oregon, I will be at Dick Blick’s from 4 to 7 pm on Friday, January 27th, giving a demonstration. You can watch me paint in watercolor, plus I will show how to use wood cradled panels with watercolor or graphite. American Easel in Salem makes the panels, and have offered to give some away at the start of my presentation. Plus, there will be discounted purchases, music and refreshments. 

That’s 1115 NW Glisan St. between 11th and 12th.  See you there!

Stop by Oregon Society of Artists (OSA) for a pink flier with a 40% off one item coupon. You’ll find them on a table inside the gallery at OSA, which is a couple of blocks up hill from the MAC club. Open 1-4pm every day except Monday. While you’re there, check out the art show, which changes monthly, and our classes and workshop offerings.

2185 SW Park Place (Corner of Park Place and St. Clair)

Watercolor Society of Oregon (WSO) will have their spring show at the OSA gallery April 14th, before it travels around the state.

Both societies are non profit and anyone can join.
