State of the Arts: The Affair @ The Jupiter Hotel

For the third year in a row I will be working with artists, gallery directors, curators and collectors from around the country at this Portland art fair. Below is a look at what to expect this weekend when you attend.

The photos shown here are some of my
favorite shots from the past three years.

Opening Gala on Friday night is always a great opportunity to beat the weekend crowds and snatch up the most exciting new works for your own. A little later in the evening the artist party is the best time to meet the artists and gallery directors in a more social atmosphere.

If you are an artist, art dealer, gallery owner, collector
or simply art enthusiast the panel discussions and
key note speakers are not to be missed.

A peak inside the hotel rooms where each room has been transformed into a showcase for outstanding galleries from Portland to New York.

Friday night is absolutely the best time to come in and get the first pick of your favorite pieces before they sell. Saturday is a great day for local artists to come in and soak up the inspiration that comes from being surrounded by so much creative output. This is also the best day to bring friends who have never attended before. Sunday is the final day to acquire your artwork as well as take one last walk through to see anything you missed earlier.
