The exhibit of historic Portland paintings by Betty Chilstrom had a rousing
and enthusiastic opening and, by popular demand, has been extended until
January 10th, 2019.
Visit Cerimon House, see the exhibit and take home a print, cards,
or the book about Betty's life, which features over 200 images.
I'm very pleased to share that my proposal to RACC (The Regional Arts & Culture Council) to write/publish a book about artist Betty Chilstrom has been funded. Thank You, RACC, and Thanks to the City of Portland.
The image-rich book will chronicle her work as a mid-to-late century regional painter over a 50-year period. Book launch will be in the Fall of 2018 at NE Portland's Cerimon House with a showing of selected paintings and drawings to run concurrently. We'll close the show with a community conversation about neighborhood development, livability and ongoing preservation efforts. I'll keep you posted!
