"me outside the original"
The show at The Original went fantastically! If you didn't have a chance to check it out, the LOLLIPOP CIRCUS | A Calderesque Homage show runs through early July. So, if you're in Portland, OR, be sure to drop in and check out all the phenomenal Calder-inspired artwork.
Oh, and the food at The Original Dinerant is insanely good. A Laphroaig martini?! Complete with a pair of olives stuffed with Smoked Maldon Sea Salt and organic Farmhouse Cheese from Noris Dairy!? What?! What?! I mean, come on NOW!
Plus, Joe of Elroy Artspace fame (the curator) and his wife Dana are just the coolest folks EVER! They did an amazing job organizing an incredible show, not the least of which was hanging up all 12 of my mobiles from some very, very high ceilings!
And, of course, big love to Devin and Shanna for hosting me while I was in town AND the coolest Natalie coming up all the way up from Bend during her finals week to surprise me (so, so, so awesome and best surprise ever) AND my sweet, sweet Dad and Mom coming down from Seattle to give their son a surprise hug AND Kathryn from Hanging Mobile Gallery coming across town with her two boys to say hi, too. So much love and fun all around - so thank you, thank you, thank you!
