“The Grinch’s Revenge – A Self-Gifting Event” Art Opening and Festivus Reception on December, 2009 1st Thursday at Elroy Artspace


For Immediate release:

“The Grinch’s Revenge – A Self-Gifting Event” Art Opening and Festivus Reception on December, 2009 1st Thursday at Elroy Artspace

Elroy Artspace presents “The Grinch’s Revenge – A Self-Gifting Event” featuring the works of Portland artists Benjamin Burch, Renee Hartig, Myah Bailey and George Perrou. For sale at its “Festivus Reception” will be selections of affordable art, and food + financial donations to the Oregon Food Bank will be promoted, and Elroy Artspace will donate a portion of the nights’ proceeds to OFB.

Portland, Oregon (December 1st, 2009) – Elroy Artspace today announced the details of its upcoming “The Grinch’s Revenge” show and exhibition. The show, and it’s “Festivus Reception” held on Porland’s Pearl District ‘First Thursday’ art walk, December 3rd, will feature the artwork of four Portland artists, and serve as a donation vehicle for the Oregon Food Bank.

The show features Portland artist Benjamin Burch. Benjamin's application of skills as a fine art painter, 2D animator and illustrator traipse the line of their individual disciplines, providing for razor-sharp images of his always-fun subjects! His childhood and enduring passion for the diverse works of Charley Harper and the 'Schoolhouse Rock' animations speak to the ultimate direction of Benjamin's career in art. For The Grinch's Revenge show, he is showing a printed recent series of beautiful illustrations. Take a look at his website for more insights to his work.

Portland artist Renee Hardig uses techniques and heightened colors to represent the elements which heavily distress and degrade the Earth's topography. But oddly, her handling of these same blights provide a striking elegance and beauty to her painted landscapes. For the Festivus Reception, Renee has painted her fine art originals onto paper and smaller canvases. See more of Renee's work on her site here.

Myah Bailey is a Portland artist who portrays the world around her with a narrative we'd all love to live within! Her degreed, formal training is shared between fine art photography and telecommunications - so its no wonder that she blends photography and technology to create her impossibly-unique 'photographic illustrations'! For our show Myah has made prints of her recent series', Ecotone and Collective Nouns. See Myah's words and works here.

Portland artist George Perrou continues to confound with his colorful Mad Man-genre portrayals of our modern worlds' landscapes and vessels. George has painted smaller interpretations of his world for the self-gifting show. See more of George's work on his site here...

In the spirit of caring, Elroy is asking that guests please bring to the show some cans of non-perishable foods...these and a portion of the nights' proceeds will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank...because no one should be hungry! (most needed: Canned meats, peanut butter, canned and boxed meals, dried/canned beans and peas, pasta/rice/cereal, canned fruits and 100% fruit juice.)

'The Grinch's Revenge : A Self-Gifting Event' and its Festivus Reception will take place this 1st Thursday, December 3rd, at Elroy Artspace from 5-9pm. Elroy Artspace is located at 1720 NW Lovejoy, at street level in the Activespace building - across from Relish and Cork, and conveniently on the trolly line...
