Broadway Gets Beautified

It's that time of year - Spring - when the flowering pots return to Beaverton's lampposts. Spring - when businesses refresh their outdoor planters with colorful annuals, and restaurants return their cafe tables, chairs and umbrellas to the outdoor landscapes in front of their eateries. Trees are green and skies are blue and the air is neither hot nor cold. Spring - a perfect time to explore the shops, restaurants, and service providers in downtown Beaverton. We would love to have you visit the gallery as you discover the charm of our neighborhood!

Sam Hingston's Jellyfish Series #5

Sam shares the following about his latest fantastic sculpture, "The 5th piece in my jellyfish series is now complete. Relative to the others I have made, it is mid-sized standing at 42" tall. I designed this one a little differently than the others, using more hardwood ply for pattern and stainless steel, rather than copper, for the tentacles. I also oriented it at a bit of an angle in an attempt to give it more of a sense of motion."

Come by the gallery to see this stunning piece first hand. You won't be disappointed.  

Broadway Street Festival - June 24

Mark your calendars now. The city of  Beaverton and the Beaverton Downtown Association are planning a major event on Saturday, June 24 from 3 to 8 p.m. Broadway Street between Watson & Hall and Hall & East Street will be closed to traffic. Visitors will be treated to live music, food vendors, arts & crafts, a children's activity center, and more.

"when darkness comes" - Powerful Show for May/June by Angela Ridgway

Work for this exhibit was installed yesterday and will officially open on Wednesday, May 3. 

Angela Ridgway reached inward to collect her thoughts and feelings about depression; she then reached outward to express those thoughts and feelings in words and visual imagery that clearly share the pain and loneliness that so many of us face day to day. 

If you've suffered from depression, or know someone who has or does, then you will quickly connect with the artwork that Angela has created, and the poetic statements she has written to accompany each piece in this exhibit.


just be here
don’t try to make me happy
just be here by my side
and let me know you care

Angela plans to donate 15% of show sales to the 
 National Alliance on Mental Illness(NAMI).
