Peoples Art of Portland Gallery has been active since November 2010, a partnership between freelance curator Chris Haberman (formerly Milepost 5, Olympic Mills Commerce Center, Portland City Hall) and Jason Brown (PoBoy, Goodfoot Gallery). It is a project of gallery spaces gifted to the selected curators from Pioneer Place Mall (Peoples Art of Portland Gallery, Place Gallery/Gabe Flores and Mark Woolley Gallery). Since its inception, the galleries have been well traveled; showing thousands of Portland artists in a very unique and professional setting, hosting events from local organizations and institutions such as PNCA to the Oregon Art Education Association, to recently a permanent gallery space with long time Portland icon, Mark Woolley.
Annual shows at Peoples’ Gallery include “The Love of Portland”, the celebrated “Big 100 Shows” and resident international poster artist, EMEK. Future 2013 shows include a feature show by international artist Chuck Sperry (August), and an all inclusive look at all artists shown on TV show Portlandia (May), as well as many returning annual shows.
We love the mall and its accessibility to anyone the open market place allows. Art doesn’t have to be hard to see, or backed by white walls, it can be simple in its beauty and cultural appeal – its as easy as walking into a mall.
