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 visitahc.org 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.
Architect and an Artist Stephen Korbich is drawn to quiet places, alleys, vacant lots, industrial things and ruins. He uses his paintings to communicate the way he sees this city. As a follow-up to his very popular 2010 exhibit at the AHC, Stephen is adding to a growing portfolio of work focused on Portland. He hopes that this new body of work will be enjoyed by everyone who loves this city and its quiet moments.
For the last several years, Artist and George Fox University Professor of Art, Gary Buhler has been painting urban landscapes. He finds that he enjoys exploring architectural elements and the spaces we occupy. This exhibit features details of many recognizable historic buildings and spaces in Portland. In these landscapes Gary strives to organize and surprise as he expresses feelings and ideas about culture and humanity. Color, contrast, and texture are his favorite tools in this exploration.
