This past weekend, I went to the annual showcase of many of Oregon's creative guilds. I love this show. I try to go every year. It's held in the Oregon Convention Center and it's a great way to see lots of art under one roof. It's a great time to get presents and also to be inspired by so much creativity. Going to this show year after year, I've started to recognize many of the artists and their work. I also see several folks I've taken classes from over the years. It's a great way to feel connected to the art scene in Portland.
Here are all the associations that were present this past weekend.
- Oregon Potter's Association
- Creative Metal Arts Guild
- Guild of Oregon Woodworkers
- Oregon Glass Guild
- Association of Northwest Weavers' Guild
- Portland Bead Society
I also got the chance to catch up with some old friends. Vince and Sabrina do amazing things with clay. They are such wonderful people. My husband and I sort of believe that they are the ultra hip versions of ourselves. You can find Sabrina's work here and Vince's work here.
I bought this necklace for myself and these earrings, but the glaze was the same as the necklace. I can't wait to show off my new beautiful jewelry!
