The Chamber will act as a gallery for local artists, and 100 percent of all proceeds are returned to the artist. The Chamber will also allow tours of the art during business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday).
Art @ the Chamber is currently featuring the work of local artist Haley Nannig, whose work will be featured during Creative Portland’s August 3 First Friday Art Walk. Join the Chamber that evening from 5 to 8 p.m. to view her work and others, enjoy light fare and a complimentary beer provided by Shipyard Brewing Company. “As an artist for artists, I am thrilled that we can offer many talented people a chance to exhibit in beautiful downtown Portland.” Said artist Christine Morgan, who has volunteered her time and services to help make the gallery a reality.
