Picture it — flowers blooming, people strolling the sidewalks, springtime sunshine soaking Southeast Portland. We call that a masterpiece. In a stroke of genius, Mt. Tabor Art Walk pairs this worthy canvas with a juried art show and sale, where community members can meet local artists in their own studios, creative spaces, and homes.
Thanks to local businesses’ support, the event will return for its 16th year, this Saturday, May 20-Sunday, May 21, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. It’s free to attend and will feature 38 artists across 24 sites, showcasing a diverse range of visual media including ceramics, sculpture, photography, metal, glass, jewelry, and more.
Highlights include David Leonard and Larry Olson, who capture brilliant images of nature; Mark Brody creates whimsical mosaic sculptures for interiors and the garden; and Helen Watts Snyder expresses her sense of the world through abstract works made with oils, watercolors, and acrylics.
