Our first Mimosa Sunday was a huge hit!
Everyone had such a great time we're making it a monthly event.
Join us Sunday, April 15th, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm for a casual artist talk with Sidestreet Arts member and represented artists!
We'll sip mimosas, nibble brunch time snacks and learn more about how our member artists do what they do.
The event is free (though you do have to be 21 or over to enjoy the adult beverages). Non-alcoholic refreshments will also be available.

Upcoming Show- Alicia Justus and Juanita Kenworth
May 02 - 27, 2018. Reception: May 04, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We're trying something new beginning with this show.
Starting in May, We'll be featuring one of our member artists, and inviting them to choose a guest artist with whom they would like to show.
Our Member Spotlight artist is Denise Krueger.
Denise takes inspiration from nature and adds her mad clay skills to create her pods.
Denise says... "My work is inspired by natural forms that are reminiscent of sea life, botanical flowers and seed pods. I’m fascinated by nature's many ways of growing and existing in beautiful shades of green and contrasting colors. I am compelled to make work to stave off depression and it makes me very happy.
My work is made with earthenware, formed from pinch pots and slabs, and lots of glorious, juicy textures and holes.
I first touched clay in a Portland Children's Art Museum class in 1971, where I made a dish for our family guinea pigs, and I’ve been hooked ever since. In 1979, I took a year of ceramics at Tigard Senior High School and it was really, really awesome! After a twenty-year hiatus full of broken dreams and too many cookies, I took classes in throwing and hand building at Georgies Ceramic Supply while putting together a small studio in the garage. From 2008 to 2010, I took ceramics classes at Portland Community College. Currently, I am making pod forms in my home studio in SE Portland."
We'd like to introduce you to our newest represented artists, showing in our Small Works Gallery - Kathleen Mistry, Chris Canote, Sine Morse, Linda Robertson, and Gia Whitlock.
We're very sorry to tell you that member artists Lisa Laser and Amelia Opie are leaving Sidestreet Arts.
They have been instrumental in getting our gallery up and running and we would not be where we are without their time and sacrifice.
Amelia will be continuing with us as a represented artist in our Small Works Gallery. We know Lisa will continue to do amazing things in the Portland art scene, and we wish her the very best.
