Toast Portland Artists April 2nd at the Screendoor Restaurant

Please forgive the cross promotion, Ultra and the WWeek have already posted and I've been tardy on this:


Organism's first big fundraiser of 2007 is the Toast Gala, 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 deserving artists.

Celebrated artists (both emerging and established, all actively showing outside the region):

James Lavadour
Matt McCormick
Sean Healy
Ellen George
R. Scott Porter & Nat Andreini (Sincerely John Head)
Katherine Bovee & Philippe Blanc
Brenden Clenaghen
Carson Ellis

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.

Details: Organism's Toast Gala, will celebrate a diverse sample of Portland's nationally/internationally active during an exciting 4 course dinner at one of Portland's new favorite restaurants: Screendoor, along with award winning wines by Panther Creek. You've never been to the Screendoor like this special private event, dress festive.

Music by Ponderosa (spacefolk cello and banjo)

Cost: $75, RSVP with Check or Credit card by March 29th.

Checks can be made out to: Organism Toast Gala, PO Box 17247, Portland, Oregon 97217

Credit Card payments can be taken at this site.

Time/Place: April 2nd 7:00 PM at Screendoor, 2337 East Burnside

This fundraising event benefitting Organism will also provide a sneak peek at our exciting Spring exhibition "Model Behavior" a group show featuring Hank Willis Thomas, Yoram Wolberger and many others. We plan to program at least 4 shows per year with a focus on quality over quantity.
