December Newsletter



For 19 years, Portland Open Studios has made it our mission to connect you, our friends, the public, with some of the best professional artists in town. This year, we reached out to more of you by offering a free app, PDXOS 2017, to find and visit studios – and you responded! PDXOS 2017 was highly successful and increased tour traffic this year! It was worth it to see so many more of you participating in the tour.

Taking a leap into the social media world creates new opportunities to expand our reach. But that leap also caused a bit of a budget shortfall. At this seasonal giving time of year, we would love for you to join us as a FRIEND OF PORTLAND OPEN STUDIOS. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by the end of the year. Like colors in a palette, Portland Open Studios has a range of opportunities for you to consider – all tax deductible.

Make a tax-deductible donation before the end of the year and become:

$50 A Friend
$150 A Copper Friend
$300 A Silver Friend
$500 A Gold Friend
$1000+ Our BFF forever (aka Platinum Friend)

We love getting checks in the mail – and that’s exactly what happened when Blank Slate Bar, a new bar and eatery in Montavilla, teamed up with longtime Open Studio artist Karl Kaiser to raise money for Portland Open Studios. They sold a special drink, the whisky-based Fluxus, during the month of October, and donated a dollar of every drink to our internship program. We just cashed their generous check. Many thanks to Blank Slate, and Karl, for your work on our behalf! Blank Slate
