First Friday Events
Why You Should Go
The Jupiter Hotel team is excited to host an artist reception for Leah Hugon, featuring the tasty suds from Coalition Brewing and buttery treats of Pacific Pie Company in our gallery for First Friday on October 2nd, from 6 to 8 PM. Free!
Discussing themes dealing with inequality in cultural power structures, poetic sentimentality, and the American female psyche, Leah Hugon’s art making process is a blend of intuition, experimentation, intentional communication, and technical execution. Hugon begins by image harvesting to choose content that represents the conversation she wants to create and then plans how the chosen images will interact through preliminary sketches based on basic principles of esthetics and design. “After I have done the preliminary planning sketches,” explains Hugon, “I decide if I am inspired to incorporate found object and/or mixed media into the work, and what type of surface the work will be painted on.”
For those 21+, complimentary samples of Coalition Brewing beer will be available. Coalition Brewing epitomizes local craft brewing in Portland. Built to bring the community together through beer, their 10 barrel brewery and tasting utilizes locally sourced ingredients and partners with local businesses and non-profits to bring clean, balanced, and crafty beer to thirsty patrons!
Supremely balanced, Coalition’s beer is drinkable, interesting, and crafted with great care, passion, and local ingredients. Be sure to check out the tasting room, where patrons are allowed the chance to imbibe in their craft products right in the production facility, getting as close to brewery as you can without actually brewing!
Light appetizers will be provided by Pacific Pie Company. Using fresh, local ingredients and only humanely raised free range and grass fed meats, Pacific Pie believes an artisan in any industry strives to learn more about their craft and where their food comes from, while always trying to achieve a better product and more flavor.
The Jupiter Hotel has been an incubator for small businesses and a supporter of the arts. Our newest venture is the First Friday Artisan Series where we expand the concept of art into an exploration of all of the senses: visual, taste, touch, smell and sound. The First Friday event is an opportunity to treat yourself to a variety of sensory stimulation and support the local artisans that make Portland a unique and wonderful place to live.
