‘New Artists 
in Portland’

Occasionally, people tell me they don’t know any local visual artists. My usual response is they probably do, but since artists work in studios hidden from the public, you just don’t know they’re there. Like termites. Just so you know, there are a number of artists who have studios in Portland, such as Chris Radtke, Tomisha Lovely-Allen and Jake Heustis. While there are too many to list here, you can find out who they are by viewing their work in the exhibition “New Artists in Portland.” The show was organized by the Portland Museum’s Young Curators Club under the direction of artist and guest curator John Begley. The free opening reception is Sunday, May 15 from 3 p.m.-5 p.m.
