The Portland Art Exhibition will be held once again on the first weekend in March. The event is held in Portlandâs Beautiful Crystal Theatre. The building ensures a wonderful atmosphere for you to enjoy the art show.
With over 400 paintings on display, all of which are for sale, it is one of the largest and most respected regional art shows in the country.
This years guest artist is Nicole Foxall. Nicole is a colour junkie who loves injecting hefty doses of pigment and vibrancy into her paintings. Her mission is to express and create from the world around her and bring colour and happiness to peopleâs walls. Nicoleâs painting process is loose and spontaneous with each piece a unique translation of the subject.
