“The Portland Bag Show”
100 artists create art from and/or on shopping bags as a benefit for P:EAR – community helping homeless youth.
Portland based Maggie McOmie, artist, film star (lead role in George Lucas’ first film, THX) and stage actress has collected shopping bags from Museum stores, Department Stores, and boutiques, for many years. The question she asked was, “What do you do with hundreds of bags that came from her travels across the U.S.? An art show benefit, that’s what. Maggie has been working on this re-fashioned bag show as an idea for many years and now it’s happening at Peoples Gallery in November. Bags are 2d painted/drawn and also 3d – reconstructed into sculpture.
Bags as “art” are offered in 3 affordable price structures: $30, $50 and $70. This is an art show to benefit P:EAR ( www.pearmentor.org ).
