Portland March 2016 First Thursday Events, Art Openings, Parties | Pearl, NW, SW, Old Town

First Thursday @ PNCA, Portland, Oregon Portland’s First Thursday event is this week! Take a break from the rain and see some art!

There are more than 50 galleries having openings this month, with most openings taking place in the Pearl district and Old Town/China Town. Most gallery openings begin at 5PM or 6PM and end at 9PM or 10PM.

We have a very large list below thanks to Sequential Art Gallery (328 NW Broadway). They compile an email called the “[h]IT LIST” of events every month. You can join it by emailing them @ sequentialart @ gmail dot com. We have reproduced much of it below with permission.
