Year of Ase, is a gathering of artists, curators, creatives, community leaders/partners, and yes a fundraiser.
The last Sunday of the month Everyday Mixed Tapes partners with a different local nonprofit or community organization to highlight the work they're doing in Portland and contribute 10% of daily sales to the group. It's a simple way for us to do right in the city we love. This months Do Right Sunday will be held September 23rd and funds will go to Ori Art Gallery.
Ori Gallery, Art Spark, UNA Gallery, and Portland Open Studios are teaming up for an evening of education and celebration! We will investigate the barriers and best practices for artists responding to open calls. And share the work we are doing to address equity, inclusion, and diversity in the Portland art scene.
Join us in a delicious, seasonal, Lepage style farm-driven dinner - we'll raffle off prizes, drink some local beer, AND raise money for a great local cause! ALL PROFITS GO TO ORI GALLERY!
