    Gallery @ the Jupiter Hotel is proud to present “Constructed Landscapes" from July 24th through September 23rd, 2014. The First Friday Eastside art walk artist opening reception is on Friday, August 1st from 6 to 8 p.m.

    “Constructed Landscapes” is based around the concept and process of creating an illusion that reflects the natural world. “Within this illusion, objects and symbols form a narrative that dwells both in myth and reality,” says artist, Hickory Mertsching. “Dancing between those two worlds of perception is the wolf that exists in our fabricated mythology, versus the wolf that resides in the real world.”

    RECEPTION : Complimentary beverages will be poured by guest artisan, Big Bottom Whiskey, as their team explains the distilling process and craft spirits culture. Light appetizers will be provided by Portland-based Olympic Provisions. Portland leather artisan, Orox Leather will be on site to share their trade and products.

    Reception for the artist will be held at the Gallery @ the Jupiter Hotel on Friday, August 1, from 6 to 8 PM.

    Gallery @ the Jupiter is open to the public 24/7, 365 days a year.
