First Friday Reception: February 5th, 6-8pm
Showcased by this group exhibit are two local companies who have similar missions: supporting and promoting artists through exceptional products that rely on attention to detail and a crafted quality that enhances artwork. In this show, these two companies will launch their collaboration of pushdot fine art prints mounted to Plywerk bamboo panels. The exhibition features eight amazing female artists whose work demonstrates what happens when presentation says it all. Plywerk provides artists and photographers with sustainable bamboo art panels that photojournalist Kim Oanh Nguyen came up with as a way to present and sell her photography. Kim is the cofounder of Plywerk along with Kjell van Zoen—they are part of this local economy and know that their growth means the growth of their partners and their community. Plywerk is made in Portland by real humans.
