August PDX Artisan Series



Local Portland Artisans Big Bottom Whiskey, Olympic Provisions & Orox Leather, First Friday, August 1st from 6 to 8 PM at the Jupiter Hotel.

Why You Should Go

Whiskey, meat and leather. Sounds like a rough and tumble Friday night? How about our FREE First Friday Artisan event with Big Bottom Whiskey, Olympic Provisions and Orox Leather Co. All local, all made in the Portland area, guests will be able to sip, snack and experience art in a whole new environment. All food & bev is complimentary, so come on down and enjoy the party from 6 to 8 PM during Southeast’s First Friday, August 1st.

SHOW: “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.”

Insider’s Secret

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.

Gallery@ the Jupiter Hotel presents “Constructed Landscapes” from July 24th through September 23rd, 2014.

In this show life, or rather, death meets art literally.  Nature morte in French means still life and that is the subject here. HIckory Mertsching’s masterly painting of still life using taxidermy animals meets taxidermied animals as still lifes by Brooke Weston.
