Our gallery slogan is “For Artists, By Artists” – and this show defines what we do. Every January we like to show the art of who makes our gallery operate – the core people of Peoples’ Gallery, from volunteers to staff and resident artists to the owners/curators themselves.* As an ALL ARTIST run gallery, Peoples Art of Portland consists of 20 plus working Portland artists, helping to show over 1000 artists annually.* This show is a selection of work by these 20 + artists, including Brin Levinson, Kendra Binney, Chris Haberman, Jason Brown, Ali Schlicting, Emily Bates, EMEK, GUYBURWELL, Gary Houston and many more.

SPECIAL FEATURE – Front Gallery:* Patrice Demmon- in retrospect
As one of our staff artists, Patrice’s selected works since 1965 will be featured in the entrance of the gallery.* Demmon is a core member and senior artist in the community, working as a volunteer and as a mentor to many younger artists at Peoples. (Patrice Demmon, Bio below)
Artist Bio: Patrice Demmon-Patrice started painting seriously in high school, which she attended in Tokyo, Japan in the late 1950s.

She has been a professional model, a graphic designer, a large event manager and fundraiser, an interior designer and renovator and has managed several restaurants in her varied professional career.

Show Info: The Peoples Art of Portland
Peoples Art of Portland Gallery*Gallery has been active since November 2010, a partnership between freelance curator Chris Haberman (formerly Milepost 5, Olympic Mills Commerce Center) and Jason Brown (PoBoy, Goodfoot Gallery).* It is a project of gallery spaces (named The Settlement) gifted to the selected curators from GGP, the management company for Pioneer Place Mall.** Since its inception, the galleries have been well traveled; showing 1000’s 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 300” 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.*
