The reception last night was lovely. About 15 of us sat around the Mother Tree crocheting and coming up with words and stories about our mothers and motherhood. Felt like sitting around a campfire with the glowing sculpture and dimming natural light. Pictures coming soon!
Here's the next related event:
Join me at Portland Stock! June 6th, 6pm at Disjecta: 8371 N Interstate, PDX, 97217
Stock is a monthly public dinner event and presentation series, which funds small to medium-sized artist projects. Diners pay a modest $10 for a dinner of homemade soup and other local delicacies and the chance to take part in deciding which artist proposal will receive the evening's proceeds. In other words, the dinner's profits immediately become an artists grant, which is awarded according to the choice of the diners. Winning artists will present their completed work at the following Stock dinner.
If selected, I will use the funds to hire dance artist Tracy Broyles to perform with Mother Tree. Please come out and support this project!
In order to attend the dinner, you must RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
They often reach maximum capacity by the Monday or Tuesday before the event, so RSVP ASAP! People sending us RSVPs after this time might not make the list for dinner seating and will be instead invited to sit in the $5 peanut gallery (meaning they can vote but don't get dinner).
