Sometimes when things are blurring by you forget to document. And so it is with Join Together— so I’m borrowing from the internet some photographic evidence of the opening; once I get non smartphone photography from the lovely Autumn Northcraft (who also shot our wedding) I’ll be sure to sum up better. There are really no words for how fun, thrilling and comforting the weekend of our wedding turned out to be. Spending time with faraway friends and family, joining two families together who’d never met, and then being surrounded by this visual representation of friendship and love…. as I told a few people during the opening this in a way was a document of my life thus far and all the people who I’ve been lucky to befriend along the way. I’m a lucky lady— and I feel so grateful. Thanks to all who came out to the opening too— it was the best.

Join Together runs until the end of the month so Portlanders— go see! I’ll share pretty photos of the wedding and opening soon. You can also purchase prints of most of the work in the show— so please support these artists and bring a little of that love into your homes.

Now the big question is (as always with me): what next? Sometimes when things are blurring by you forget to document.

Been meaning to write up an official blog post about this and it’s only two weeks away, so here goes!

Back on a cold December evening surrounded by friends, my best friend proposed to me after more than a decade of courtship, much of that long distance. A night or two later I thought about a brilliant idea: what if we celebrate this union with art, closing the long-distance gap for good with an explosion of talent and beauty? So I set out contacting all the many artists I’ve been fortunate to know and count as friends, both near and far. I asked them the sweetest favor I could: would you create a piece of art to celebrate with us, even if you can’t be there in person? Wonderfully, dozens of them wrote back and said wholeheartedly yes!

Join Together is a product of friendships gathered over the years, from old friends from college to creatives I admire all over the world, from students and professionals, designers and illustrators and artists alike. More than that, it is an ode to love and building a life together. The work on display will  be brought into our future home together to remind us of love in all its many facets for years to come.

If you’re in the Portland area, please stop by at Land to celebrate with us on August 9th. It’ll be like a reception for us— we’ll have a photobooth wall perfect for Instagram or tweeting (#jointogetherpdx), tasty treats, good tunes, and of course a ton of art!

Artists include Kate Bingaman Burt, Julia Rothman, John Martz, Ping Zhu, Jared Andrew Schorr, Andrew Kolb, Phil McAndrew, Chuck Groenink, Andrea Kalfas, Will Bryant, BT Livermore…. the list goes on and on. I’ll publish the full list next week as the final pieces arrive!

Join Together runs August 9- September 1 at Land, 3925 N. Mississippi Ave., Portland, Or. Been meaning to write up an official blog post about this and it’s only two weeks away, so here goes!

It’s been a little while since I posted any artwork— ack! It’s been kind of a hectic summer gearing up for the wedding + gallery show. I really can’t wait for some quiet time to make a lot more artwork—I miss sharing art with you, internet! 

This will be a 3 color 11x14” screenprint for the gallery show. With love to John and John—this is still hands down one of my most favorite songs.

Not as pretty as our petite ceremony at @landpdx will be, but still just as meaningful.

I’ve been getting a few little peeks of work for the show I’m curating to tie in with my August wedding— I’m so excited to share it all with you! Above are sneak peeks from Andrew Kolb, Emma Trithart, Lauren Gregg and Julianna Swaney. But don’t worry! With over 50 artists involved, there’s going to be lots more to see. Not to mention the photobooth for the opening! I can’t wait.

Join Together opens August 9th at Land. I’ll be sharing more as we get closer to the date!
