  1. Hello James-
    I am the Exhibits Coordinator for a large gallery on the campus of the Oregon State University. We are looking to create an exhibit for January-Feb. 2016. I was looking through the Portland Open Studio website and really enjoyed your work. There are 5 other Portland artists from this site we feel would show well together & create a dynamic exhibit. Our gallery is located in the beautiful Memorial Union & has a very large viewership.Please let me know if you might be interested in this exhibition opportunity, then we can discuss in more detail. My phone # is: 541-737-6371

    I look forward to hearing back from you.
    be well, Susan
