One of my goals for 2011 is to have my art in local Portland shops. So, needless to say, I was thrilled when Tatiana Sakurai of The Proper asked me if I wanted to showcase some of my art in their space. The Proper is a salon/showroom located in Portland's SE industrial district, not too far from where I had my shop. The space is in a historical building, so there are lots of neat features- wood slat ceiling, brick columns, and vintage exterior tiles.
I have a number of original works and prints currently hanging in the window display of The Proper. Mixed in with the art is a menagerie of vintage, found, and handmade items, including Tatiana's beautiful jewelry designs. I featured a pair of her earrings here. She also started making again these lovely solid perfumes that we used to carry in our shop. This one is called City of Roses, and I picked one up for my mom for Christmas. If only the picture was a scratch-n-sniff!
If all of this doesn't entice you to come down to The Proper, then how about a display of crocheted portraits by Portland artist Jo Hamilton?
Uh-mazing. And you've got to see her crocheted cityscape of Portland here.
