Portland Visit - Day 2

January 5, 2012, was an unseasonably bright and sunny day in Portland. Liis and I did a lot of walking on the final day of our short visit.

Portland Visit - Day 1b

Leaving happy hour at Henry’s Tavern, on the first of a two-day Portland visit, I noticed a gathering at Bullseye Gallery. Liis and I decided to check it out. It was an opening night reception for “Facture: Artists at the Forefront of Painterly Glass,” including works by Michael Janis, Kari Minnick, Martha Pfanschmidt, Ted Sawyer, Abi Spring and Jeff Wallin. The show runs through February 25, 2012.

Portland Visit - Day 1a

On January 4, 2012, Liis and I took the train to Portland for a two-day visit. After checking into the Mark Spencer Hotel, we walked around, visited the Portland Art Museum and went to Henry’s Tavern for happy hour.

Among the highlights at the museum, for us, was La Bella, a single painting Titian exhibition; Three Ghost Ships by Chris Burden and Artifact Panel, a glass installation by William Morris.
