Of Pints and Men, a Beer Art Show at Gigantic Gallery!
I am very excited to announce that two of us from portlandbeer.org are being featured in the show "Of Pints and Men" at Gigantic Gallery. Ian Seniff and I are taking part in this month's exhibit, which includes photography, paintings and illustrations all about beer.
I will be showing photography from several breweries: Amnesia Brewing, BridgePort Brewing, Deschutes Brewery, Full Sail Brewing, Hair of the Dog, Hopworks Organic Brewing, Laurelwood Brewing, Lucky Lab Brewing, Rock Bottom Brewery, Roots Organic Brewing, and Widmer Brothers Brewing. For this show, I want to show the hard work behind your favorite beer and the beauty of the equipment in the brewery. I will be displaying some of my favorite shots from the past five years, some of them historical shots that can never be captured again.
Ian "South Bend" Seniff is a Portland based bloke who makes paintings. His work has been shown on many walls, some not his own. Ian's work is a result of his childhood obsessions meeting his adult obsessions. However, it should be noted that many of his childhood obsessions have remained unchanged for over 25 years. Want to know if Captain Lambic (pictured right) comes out at night to deliver beer to the needy, or does he instead rob you of your favorite beer to feed his own needs? Well, show up on opening night and ask Ian.
I'm also excited to see the work of the other contributors to the show that I have not met yet: photographer John Carleton and illustrator Jonathon Hill-Jacquard.
Any self-respecting beer related event will also have beer. Thanks to a generous donation from Deschutes Brewery, Gigantic Gallery will also be pouring Chainbreaker White IPA on opening night! So, come on out, drink some beer, and and see beer from the perspective of four Portland artists!
