Monthly Artist Exhibits

Cast Iron Portland Exhibit

First Friday Art Walk - at the AHC

We participate in the Central Eastside Arts District's First Friday Art Walk. The AHC galleries will stay open later and we'll feature something special for the art-walking crowd most months. Stop in at the AHC and then check out the other galleries and venues in the neighborhood!

Artist exhibits are held monthly with opening receptions on most First Fridays. Receptions are free and open to the public. Work is for sale, and 25 percent of all sales go to support the educational programs of the AHC. The remaining 75% of sales go directly to the artist.

First priority for shows goes to AHC members, however we are open to inquiries from all artists. If you are interested in exhibiting your work in our wonderful space, come check out one of our shows then email barbarap at for more information. We hope you will join us to support the fine arts and historic preservation.

Art exhibits are not accessible during education programs and private events. Feel free to call and check the schedule before visiting.

Everyone has their own unique style and viewpoint. But, do you only have one way of looking at things? Are you willing to consider someone’s perspective that may be different than yours?

In Perspectives, 3 artists and 1 poet visited sites around the Portland Metro area and documented their impressions through an artistic medium. This exhibit was a collaborative effort over the past year also explores the different definitions of perspective. The exhibit challenges us to open our eyes, minds and hearts to look at things from a different perspective and see another’s point of view.
