June 2020 Update:

Hello, Just a quick update on happenings  in my world. I have been using my quarantine time to finish up my current body of abstract works, some of which are nearing completion. Since Covid 19 has made the possibility of a gallery show in the next year highly unlikely, I have decided to make smaller works from this group available in my online shop starting in early July 2020. Though larger works will not be listed in the shop, I will be posting photos on here (and my Instagram page) and they will be available through inquiry only. I also have some creature works in the shop as well, if that's more your thing. More announcements to follow soon, please stay healthy and safe!

December 2018 News

Hi Folks!
I hope December finds you well and happy. As 2018 draws to a close, I wanted to let you know what's been going on in my world.

As some of you all ready know, I have been trying to figure out how to spend more time with my family in the Kansas City area, who have suffered some recent health setbacks. Unfortunately, my Mom recently suffered her second stroke in less than two years, which has hastened my plans for balancing my time between Portland and the Midwest. In a few weeks I will be traveling to Kansas City to spend the holidays, assess my folks situation, and look into lining up art shows in the KC area. Most likely I will be spending longer periods of time there more frequently, which will require me to set up an art studio, so that I can continue working on various art projects in Portland and Kansas City. Of course, this will be much more financially challenging, and so I am asking for a little help: if you have been interested in purchasing an original painting, it would be extremely helpful as I prepare for a big life transition. Here are a few ways you can help me out (and aquire some new art in the process!)

If you live in Portland, my abstract paintings are on view at The Carina Lounge, located at 410 NW 21st. Ave (hours are 4:30pm-11pm, Tuesday-Sunday) If you are interested in a painting there, contact me and we can make arrangements. The show will come down in mid-January, and work will be available for pick up at that time.

Also in Portland, I will be having an open studio sale on Sunday, December 16th, from 1pm-6pm at 1974 SE 20th Ave. (at the intersection of SE 20th and SE Harrison)

If you live outside of Portland, I have many paintings listed in my online shop, and in  the shop of my collaborative project, Fancy Mammal. Also for more pictures of works in progress, visit my Instagram page.

And finally, if you just want to make a financial donation, you may do so here.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement during this challenging time, and best wishes for a happy and loving holiday season.

All the Best,
Brent

October Show of Abstract Works



Please join me this October 4th for what will be my last big show in Portland for a while. This will consist  of my recent larger abstract paintings from the last several years. It is a fund raiser for an art residency in the Kansas City Area, so that I may spend time with my family, who have had some recent health setbacks. Show will run through the month of October, hope to see you there!

I will also be having several open studio sales this fall,  and will post more info soon. And of course I am putting lots of works in my online shop if you can't make it the show or open studio dates.

Please join Kirsten and I as we open our new show (featuring more corvid tomfoolery) this Friday, June 2nd. Here are all the details!
