Showcasing work by artists who have lived, worked, or studied in the Pacific Northwest
In today’s connected digital age, art and information are more accessible than ever, but there is power in seeing an object in person and interacting with it in shared physical space. We maintain social ties and friendships through email, social media, and messaging, but there is special value in relationships that have been built in person. As part of the 2018 Society of North American Goldmiths Conference this Gallery Crawl exhibition explores these physical ties, bringing visitors face to face with craft objects by artists who have moved through the Pacific Northwest region at some point in their creative development. The artists may now maintain connections through our modern digital means, but they have also shared and been shaped by our real-world geography. We celebrate the artists’ ties to this physical place by sharing their works with visitors gathering from across the country and beyond for the 2018 SNAG conference
There will be two reception, one as part of Portland’s “First Thursday” May 3rd, 2018, and one as part of the SNAG Conference Gallery Crawl May 24th. 5 to 8 pm
Bellow is the piece I have in this show - "Flowing Water"

I'll have several new pieces including the debut of my "Flowing Water" jewelry collection and orchid inspired wall sculptures.
LOVE THAT! – Jewelry and Sculptures by Mandy Allen
The Alberta Street Gallery, January 25th - Feb 20, 2018.
What I hate about Valentine’s Day is that it can be this super-shallow “holiday” in which we become obsessed with having someone to spend a forced romantic evening with and receive cheesy, disposable gifts. What I love about Valentine’s Day is that it can be a time in which we reflect on the people we deeply love and choose a special gift that you know they will love. And the very best part is that person can be yourself… and chocolate, chocolate is a good thing about Valentine’s Day.
From January 25th through Feb 20th, 2018, I will be the featured artist at the Alberta Street Gallery, with a marvelous selection of jewelry and sculptures. Maybe one of my pieces are just that gift you’re looking for.
Opening Reception: Last Thursday, January 25th, 6 pm to 9pm. 2724 NE Alberta Street, Portland www.albertastreetgallery.com
