In conjunction with PRIDE Month, Multnomah Arts Center is exhibiting a juried multimedia show called “PRIDE” showcasing art created by artists in the LGBTQIA+ Community of Portland and the area. The exhibit begins June 7. An opening reception will be held on Friday, June 7, 6-9pm. The show runs through July 2 and closes at 5pm on that day. Some of our Future Prairie artists are featured in this show, including Julia Laxer, Anna Suarez, Tiana Garoogian, and Joni Renee Whitworth.
All LGBTQIA+ artists will be sharing their perspectives on aspects of their lives – coming out, confronting bias, surmounting challenges, finding love, and celebrating queerness. The show includes drawings, paintings, mixed media and collage, digital media, zines, jewelry, kiln-formed glass, photography, sculpture, poetry, prose and video from 29 artists representing a wide range of perspectives and reflections on life in the LGBTQIA+ community. Please come on down to SW and check it out!
