Jeni Lee's "Valleyscapes"

Posted by Debbe Hamada on

Join us Sunday, June 9th from 2 - 4:00pm for the opening reception of local artist Jeni Lee's show Valleyscapes: Paintings Celebrating the Willamette Valley. 

"I work primarily from memory and imagination, allowing the experience and sensations of nature to emerge as I paint. With washes and glazes of paint and water, I continually build and alter the painting, carving out forms and layering light to evoke mood and atmosphere.
The Willamette Valley, with its dramatic skies and endless folds of earth and water, has always been a strong influence on my work, especially in the spring, when the fresh color and light of the season inspires much growth and possibility."

Portland, Oregon artist Jeni Lee is known for her atmospheric paintings of the lush Northwest landscape. Each eartwork is created with layers of acrylic paint, rain and collected, recycled rainwater. This process of engaging with the rain invites unique works through chance and timing, each with patterns and reflections of color and light.

We look forward to seeing you at the opening reception on June 9th or come visit us anytime at the store, Jeni's work will be up on our walls until July 25th.

Hope Bots

Posted by Julie Beckett on

Portland artist Gary Hirsch has added a new Bot to his line up of magical talismen. The Hope Bot proudly sports a pink hat and is here to help when you feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by the events around you.

Gary and Tilde have joined forces to donate all the dollars raised from the sale of these bots to the ACLU. In these overwhelming times, this little bot is here to help when you start to feel paralyzed. Keep it by your side and it will fill you with hope and optimism. Take your Bot with you for hope everywhere you go.

Each Bot is unique, costs $14 and comes in a box with a booklet explaining its powers. The Hope Bot is not available on our website due to its unique characteristics. You can email us at, call us at 503-234-9600 or come in to choose the right bot for you!

Jeni Lee

Posted by Julie Beckett on

This Portland based visual artist creates serene emotive works using paint and rainwater.  For this series, Jeni carried the originals in and out of the rain as she built up the layers of color.

Each original has now been turned into a limited edition giclee print, numbered and signed by the artist.

In this second series, Jeni used rainwater collected at her studio to mix the paints.

We love the colors and the mood these ethereal pictures create.
