The Portland Love show seeks to shine some light on the complicated disco ball that is love, dark facets and all. With the greeting card/florist/jewelry/chocolate conspiracy focusing so much attention (and cash) on romance and sex every February, we aim to create a visual dialogue about love in its many incarnations and interpretations, be it self-love, sorrow, lust, confusion, hope, bitterness, gentleness, deception, romance, imagination, jealousy, true love, young love, love lost, parental, filial, adversarial love, the surrounding abundance of love or love as the unknown….

We invited over 200 artists to make ONE ARTWORK each that looks a little deeper into the mysteries of Love, beautiful and terrible, and explore and expose a little bit more of what love means to them.

Show runs February 3rd-March 12th, 2018
