People of Peoples

Since opening in November 2010, Peoples Art of Portland Gallery has shown over 1000 local and national artists.  The Gallery itself was a vacant toy store when the Peoples crew took over, using the remaining architectural structure as a backdrop for art instead of toys. Being inside of an actual mall, this gallery is a welcome place amongst high-end retailers and consistent retail fare. The gallery has always operated as a place for artists, run by artists, volunteers and a duo-curatorial team of artists Chris Haberman and Jason Brown, with manager (and artist) Heidi Elise-Wirz. 

For our 15th consecutive exhibition, we wanted to celebrate this notion, in essence to celebrate the volunteer artists and staff that make this gallery what it is. This show exemplifies our connection to the community and how the gallery works: artists showing artists, working together.  

Artists: : Ali Schlicting, Anna Magruder, Brin Levinson, Chris Haberman, Chuck Blooom, Dan Pillers, Heidi Elise Wirz, Jen Berry, Jesse Reno, Joel Barber, Kendra Binney, Kyle Gossman, Larry Christensen, Matt Schlosky, Patrice Demmon, Robert Paulmenn, Sam Arneson,  Roger Lealamanua ,  Wellie Glenn
