Susie Ghahremani of boygirlparty will be exhibiting at the Land Gallery in Portland, Oregon from August 10-September 2, 2012, and she’s sharing some exclusive previews from the upcoming show with Pikaland readers!
She’ll be showcasing some of her personal work that’s done over the past three years, and this will be her first solo exhibition in Portland. There’s going to be well over 100 pieces in there, from miniature paintings to drawings; commercial illustrations, and a collaborative project with Irene Stone, the cross-stitcher to develop her drawings of extinct animals into cross stitch pieces.
“Entitled “Clear Skies and Cloudy Days: Artwork and Explorations”, the show will feature a range of experiments from “clear skies”, the joyful, animal imagery traditionally found in Ghahremani’s work, to “cloudy” subject matter such as vignettes of extinct species and loved ones lost at sea, offering a bittersweet side of her work rarely seen by the public.”
Where: Land Gallery, 3925 N. Mississippi Ave, Portland, OR 97227
Opening Reception: Friday, August 10th, 6 – 9pm.
