March First Thursday

Posted 29 January 2018

Keller 750C300

Will Keller's Breakfast 3.1 is featured in "The Color of Longing," on view through March 18.

Every First Thursday, we open our doors to the community: whether you're just strolling by, headed to a gallery down the street, or here for a show, come on in and join us for local music, snacks a-plenty, and a complimentary beer from our neighbors over at Deschutes. 

In March, peruse two separate galleries and hear live music by Kodachrome composer Jana Crenshaw. Recurring Chapters in the Book of Inevitable Outcomes is an installation by Brenda Mallory, a local artist and member of the Cherokee Nation. 

"The Color of Longing," curated by our neighbors at Blue Sky Gallery, brings together images that use color to reflect on Kodachrome's themes of nostalgia, unrequited love, and human frailty.  Blue Sky staff will be on hand to answer questions about the show. You can also walk down to Blue Sky (122 NW 8th Ave) and see more work by each of the artists on view at PCS, as well as their latest exhibitions Father Figure by Zun Lee and Silesia by Michal Cala. 

sday, March 1

5 - 7 p.m.
