Onda Show Opens At Last

Crowd at Onda (I could hardly get into the room where my work was showing...)

I've rarely seen such a crowd as the one that descended on Alberta St. tonight for the Last Thursday Art Walk. I hadn't been for awhile, and what a scene! Luckily many friends braved the crowd to come see the show at Onda. I had a great time and am looking forward to the gallery talk Bonnie Meltzer and I will give on August 16.

Bonnie's work and mine complemented each other extremely well, and I was delighted to meet this artist who does such unique work and is the driving force behind Portland Open Studios.

I was able to take a few pictures and a few of those turned out, so here they are:

The street is closed off for the evening and you can hardly walk down the sidewalk which is lined with art viewers and street artists

One of my favorite pieces of Bonnie's is this bowl

Me grinning broadly in front of two sold pieces

Pablo and Allan, the brains behind Onda

Just for fun, a picture of my first show at Onda in 2001

I have just a few copies of my book left before I order more--let me know if you want one! Thanks to Pablo and Allan and all my friends who turned out tonight and those who will see the show later!

It looks beautiful and I can't wait to see it "live" in its entirety. The pictures you photographed look like they are hung and lit well and are complimented by the gallery walls.

...and congratulations on some sales!...
