Please forgive the cross promotion, Ultra
and the WWeek
have already posted and I've been tardy on this:
fundraiser of 2007 is the Toast
, a special evening with a four course dinner celebrating a diverse
sample of Portland's visual artists at the Screendoor. Wines by Panther Creek
(space is limited so RSVP with payment by March 29th).
The guestlist is already shaping up to be an impressive catalogue of movers,
makers and shakers (with some interesting new to town faces who haven't gotten
involved before). We plan to do more of these to put the spotlight on many other
Celebrated artists (both emerging and established, all actively showing outside the region):
Scott Porter & Nat Andreini (Sincerely John Head)
Katherine Bovee &
Why wouldn't you want to buy these artists dinner? Also, we intend to do more
of these as a way to give back to the hardworking artists. We chose Screendoor because of its excellent food, elegant yet warm Donald Judd meets the South decor and the fact that it's a favorite with artists, rockstars, ad people, professional snowboarders etc., its got a great mix of elegance with no boring. Panther Creek is simply one of the best winemakers available anywhere.

nationally/internationally active during an exciting 4 course dinner at one
