Inside/Outside: Reflections on Portland & Oaxaca
by Jesus Kobe and Cristobal Garcia | Upstairs Gallery

This mixed-media collection explores the reflections of two artists—two brothers—who have lived their lives in two places: Oaxaca and Portland. In these pieces, they express what they see inside and outside of themselves as they move through the two cities closest to their hearts.

Latino Landscapes
by Victor Fuentes and Inmaculada Cruz | Downstairs Gallery

Painting by Victor FuentesFuentes and Cruz explore their Latin American roots through the trees, flowers, animals, people and architecture of the physical and cultural landscapes they inhabited in their youth. Deceptively simple, these richly-colored paintings reflect with vividness and intensity the artists’ memories and impressions as they reinvent the vistas of their homelands with exuberance, freedom, and nostalgia.

Colors and Shapes by Jeff JurrensJune 6 - July 24

Color & Shape
by Jeff Jurrens | Upstairs & Downstairs Gallery

Following in the tradition of Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman, the pioneers of color field painting—an offshoot of abstract expressionism that is both modern and mythic—this powerful collection expresses a yearning for transcendence and experience outside of symbolism. Large, looming, and fantastically bright, Jeffrey Jurrens’ colorscapes encounter the viewer without the pretense of being anything other than what they are: color and shape—pure and impressive.

First Tuesday Reception:*
June 6 | 5 - 6:30 pm 
Live music in the lobby by Catherine Bede

*Due to the holiday, there is no First Tuesday reception on July 4.

The Frida Project
by Group Mural Exhibition | Upstairs & Downstairs Gallery

In the spirit of cross-cultural understanding and collaboration between Latin American and Caucasian communities in Hillsboro, the Frida Project brought together a group of Hillsboro artists whose multiple perspectives explore themes of intersecting identities and cultures. Together, these artists have created a collection of mural panels that reflect the powerful legacy of the great Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, and explore possibilities for how her work and ideas might relate to our home here in the Willamette valley.
