First Thursday Fun

First Thursday at Portland’s Pearl District, sponsored by, this past July 3rd was amazingly fun. Hundreds & hundreds of people came out in droves to enjoy & support the artist, such as myself. This was my first experience at the Pearl and what a night. Live music surrounded us all evening and the weather provided sunshine to keep my tentless art nice & dry.

The Horse Radish — Carlton, OR

I not only walk the long staircase down and next building over for fantastic Willamete Valley Pinot, I visit the wonderful smiling faces and warm inviting personalities serving Sarah & me with our vino and gourmet delectable dishes. They also tout a great variety of wonderful cheeses to pair with our wine selection. Live music entertains each Friday and Saturday evenings featuring jazz, folk and soulful instrumentalists & vocalists from the Portland area. Come visit Sabra, Davin, Pat, Karen and Gwen at The Horse Radish.

Not only is there wonderful wine, great art from local artists, including myself, are featured throughout the facility to purchase. It’s a treat for your palatable, auditory and visual senses.
