Fall Art Exhibition 2017





Our Space

In January 2017, Creative Portland launched an inviting street presence in the heart of the arts district, with a multi-use community & gallery space, open to the public weekdays from 10-4. Our first open call for our first juried art exhibit, selected by a volunteer curatorial team of twelve, received over 150 entries from emerging and established Greater Portland artists. The “Best of Portland” art exhibition hung through April 2018. All local art is for sale so please bring your checkbooks when you visit us at 84 Free Street :) 

The gallery exhibition will change every six months. Look out for the next open call in August 2018.
