Last year, an art show called “Thirty!” brought out crowds that lined up around the block waiting to get in to a standing-room-only space to see 900 small paintings created by local Portland artists. In the four-hour opening, over 700 of the paintings were sold – that’s almost three paintings per minute throughout the course of opening night. This year brings the sequel, titled “Thirty One!”. Thirty one local artists have thirty one days to create thirty one paintings, apiece. The result: 931 small (7″ X 7″ original panels on sale for $31 apiece, and 31 larger paintings up for silent auction.
This is all happening on Friday, August 1 at OM Tradition Arts – 14 NE 10th Ave @ E. Burnside, right here in Portland.
