The seven artists who partnered in the AIR Gallery at Pioneer Place are having a reunion this month to show new work in encaustic, oil, cold wax, acrylic, photography and mixed media.


The AIR Gallery, like the other galleries at Pioneer Place, brought many of us together, encouraged creativity, fostered the collection and understanding of art, and nurtured lasting friendships.

The partners of the AIR Gallery are honored to not only show new work, but are also excited to provide the chance to travel back in time. The show “Reunion” will run through May, but for one night – the show’s opening night – the community will have the opportunity to join and re-experience the creative spirit that became the artistic heartbeat of Pioneer Place.

Join us in the beautiful setting of the Portland’5 Centers for the Arts and become the “Reunion.” Old friends – new friends and a stunning collection of recent work by artists Jo Grishman, Theresa Andreas-O’Leary, Leslie Wood Kamman, Linda Robertson, Fred Swan, Suzanne Vaughan, and Samyak Yamauchi.

This is the perfect venue for me to show off some of my larger work, including encaustic paintings that measure up to 4 feet and large scale photographs from the 20 x 24 Polaroid camera I worked on in college (pictured at right, link goes to story). Please join us! This is a kid friendly venue so feel free to bring the whole family.
