1st Annual Limited Edition Portland Open Studios Print
The name Kimberly Gales is an important one in Portland Open Studios history. As one of the first board members of our organization, started in 1998, she helped establish the yearly open studios tour. So it made sense that our first limited edition print would be by Kimberly Gales.
Her untimely death of a stroke in 2005 – at age 56 – rocked her friends and family – and the PDXOS Board. In her honor, every year since the board has awarded a scholarship to an emerging young adult artist.
Kimberly Gales was a watercolorist, just starting to push the bounds of the medium. HER mother, Myla Keller, was a well-known prolific Portland painter who died in 2020. They even did open studios together once!
These prints are a limited edition of only 50. The funds will be used to help run Portland Open Studios so that we can continue to do this work for years to come.
Shipping will be $5
