Meet Derek and see his art This Thursday !

Derek Olsen is a painter, silk screener and tattoo artist currently working at Black Hole Tattoo & Body Piercing in Portland. He often paints as an attempt to better understand the things that inspire it a flock of birds, Japanese wood block prints, old tattoo flash or a brass band marching down the street. Derek has a desire to comprehend what it is, how it makes him feel, and why it moves him. This show is a series of work ranging from small to large, with a set of free-standing privacy screens as a utilitarian way to make large scale artwork more accessible. Please enjoy his attempts at understanding.

Artist Reception Party May 7th 7-10pm

Live Music: Celilo
Celilo fuses the dark and dreamy indie city skylines with a drawling rural charm into moody Americana rock. The lead singer, Sloan, has beaten down vocals that travel on world-worn wisdom through barrooms, bedrooms, and back roads. Celilo summons up the driving pop of early Wilco and conjures the bleak beauty of Townes Van Zandt.

Benefit: 15% of all event proceeds go to Mercy Corps

Beer: Widmer Brothers Brewery

Bonus: 20% off all regular price merchandise from 7-10pm. (not to be combined with other offers)
