Big & Small Group Show

Posted on Updated on

The BIG & small event shows art from the BIG to the small.

Featuring paintings from a number of local Portland Artists, LCAC Artist Janelle Schneider of HeartVisions Studio will have some work from the Constellations series in this fun show. Opening Thursday November 12, 2015, on view through December 28 7-10PM

Red E Café
1006 N. Killingsworth
Portland OR 97217


The Red E café on Killingsworth is the best kept secret in the Portland art scene. Primarily a coffee roaster but also a gorgeous gallery, with lots of natural and carefully planned lighting, HUGE walls and hip ambiance.

Usually only very large work looks good in the 12 foot high room.

This show is an opportunity to see some very large work with smaller more accessible pieces.

A variety of artists show their smaller stuff in context with some of their BIG ART.

All through December. BIG art, small art, loose art. Accessible, giftable and gettable art. Including cards and prints.

See some of your favorite artist in a completely new way. BIG & small brings together 13 artists’ largest and smallest work in this stunning Gallery.

I See You – an ekphrastic corpse

Posted on Updated on

LCAC Member Becky Busi will be participating in I See You.

I See You*I SEE YOU is a mashup between an exquisite corpse
and ekphrastic art.
Exquisite Corpse is a practice invented by the dadaists.
A writer or artist continues a work by a previous writer/
artist, without seeing the entirety of the original piece.
Ekphrastic Art is a work of art inspired by another work
of art in a different medium.
Gathering Crows invited six poets to write an exquisite
corpse, based on the theme, “I See You.” Each poet
was given the last sentence from the previous writer.
As the poet finished their segment, it was sent to one
of 6 invited artists to interpret.
