Join local artists Neil Perry and Susannah Kelly this First Thursday, April 7, 2011, for What the Timbers Saw – Art Celebrating the Portland Timbers.
My favorite thing about attending Timbers games is the sense of camaraderie among the crowd, there is a real sense of community and that is something to be proud of’’ said co-curator and artist Susannah Kelly . . .
Co-curator Neil Perry said: “My re-location to Portland from the UK was largely down to two things: the internationally renowned art community and some very good friends, members of the Timbers Army, who I met when they visited Sunderland to watch my team play in 2006. It’s an honor to be able to bring these two passionate cultures closer together.”
Works by Timber Jim, amongst many others, will be on display and available for sale. For a list of all the artists visit the Facebook event page.
The Bitter End Pub (1981 W. Burnside) is the place, starting at 7pm. 30% of sales (100% of Timber Jim’s and his granddaughter’s art, which will be auctioned off) will be donated to “Operation Pitch Invasion,” a local charity dedicated to repairing and maintaining soccer fields in Portland.
