PDX Panels – A Fundraiser

a large group exhibition showcasing our city's talent

Artists' Party: Friday, December 14, 7-11pm
DJ's, Food, Drinks…Lets Celebrate!

In October, Portland Art Center announced an open call to artists to participate in the fundraising exhibition PDX Panels. The call was open to emerging, mid-career and established artists and encouraged artists to "do whatever they pleased" (i.e. paint on it, paste on it, photograph on it, draw on it, anything goes).

300 panels were made and are ½" MDO, untreated, plywood with hanging hardware pre-mounted on one side. Each panel will be priced at $300 with 75% of proceeds going to support PAC, and 25% to the artist. PDX Panels is designed as a holiday fundraising exhibition for PAC. Many artists approached PAC with a desire to help, but not having the funds to do so. This exhibition creates the environment to support PAC, and to showcase the breadth of talent we have here in our city.

A Special 11″x11″ Panel Silent Auction
During the process of preparing the second round of panels, a few were miss-cut so we decided to make a special set of 11"x11" panels. These panels will be part of a special silent auction that begins during the Preview Reception and continues till the end of the exhibition.

A few of the 11″x11″ panel artists are: Sam Adams, Sharon Bronzan, Rae Mahaffey, Trude Parkinson, Robert T. Baribeau, Daniel Papke, Sherrie Wolf, Tom Prochaska, and Morgan Walker.

The Henry Hillman Jr. Foundation Matching Grant!
We are proud to announce that Mr. Henry Hillman Jr. has come forward and offered to match the panel sales up to $20,000! Buying an artists panel this month, not only supports PAC and the artist, but doubles your contribution. This is an amazing opportunity! Help us take advantage of this wonderful gift! It's the holiday's and a beautiful local artist panel would make a great gift.
We will also be giving PAC Membership's with each purchase.
Join in the festivities and show your support for Portland Art Center.
Portland Art Center sincerely thanks Mr. Hillman for this strong level of support!



Memory Machines | Alicia Eggert

Memory Machines is an installation on thought and the ways of the mind. Over the course of a year and a half, Alicia documented her thoughts, ideas, feelings, dreams and memories on thousands of small yellow Post-it notes. These notes are now an incarnation of the artist's subconscious, little yellow birds that form a flock of thought and soar high above the cages that wish to contain them.

Alicia Eggert was born in New Jersey and spent 4 years of her early childhood living in Cape Town, South Africa, where her parents were missionaries during the apartheid. She earned a bachelors degree in Interior Design from Drexel University in Philadelphia, and is currently pursuing an MFA in Sculpture/Dimensional Studies from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. She moved to Portland in 2005, where she formed a contemporary art organization that produces interdisciplinary public art events, known as Kitchen Sink PDX. Her work is inspired by the habits and objects found within everyday life.


The Open Space Community Gallery is a home for a wide variety of exhibits and available for temporary lease by academic institutions, art organizations and individual artists. It is a community space designed for fostering creative interactions. This space is managed not curated.

It Takes A Village
A PAC Volunteer Exhibition

The Portland Art Center is maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers who are also working artists in our community. This exhibit features twenty talented artists who graciously support the Portland Art Center. In return, the Portland Art Center is proud to support these artists in providing them with the opportunity to show their work in the Open Space Community Gallery. Showcasing work in a wide range of media, this exhibition is an opportunity to get an inside look at the lives and artwork of local artists who are a key element in the foundation of the Portland Art Center.

It Takes A Village is also organized and curated by a group of volunteers and interns providing experience in the world of curation with support and guidance. Many of our volunteers are involved not only to be a part of a dynamic community, but also to gain experience and professional skills.

Organized by: Jaclynn Fronczak, Lindsay Kennedy, Emily Larson, Stephanie Leet

Artists: Adam Bailey, Dave Benz, Keia Booker, Janette Cavecche, Niina Cochran, Dodrick Evans, Gabe Flores, Jaclynn Fronczak, Chris Haberman, Jaclyn Kampmeier, Lindsay Kennedy, Stephanie Leet, Nova Moisa, Lorna Nakell, Seth Nehil, Dave Nunn, William Shouse, Carlena Stroh, Anni Tracy, Jenny Zajac.
