The Collins Gallery, located inside the Multnomah County Library in downtown Portland, Oregon, is celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the Oregon Country Fair.
A poster I created in 1993 for the History Booth at the Oregon Country Fair is featured in this show. Intended as a color your own poster, it is an illustration I created from the "Fair Magic…Making Dreams into Reality" painting. That painting features well-known performers and colorful people of the circus parade from photos shot in 1983. See the painting at LCHM, in Eugene; June 8,2019 - June 6,2020.
The original black and white, brush and ink, art board will be presented along with an original silkscreen of the poster printed with purple ink by Horizon Screen Printing. To celebrate the 50th anniversary, reprints of the color your own poster will be given free for viewers to take home.
Reception: June 29, 2019 from 2:30-4:30 A few people will be speaking about the history of the fair, followed by background music.
