Scene & Heard at Blondie: A Salon

April 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Blondie: A Salon proved harder to find than I thought since no one followed that I used "Speakeasy Salon" as the title for an art exhibit at a hard-to-find hair salon. Salon is a term used way back to mean art exhibit -- a style of hanging art in plentitude.

However, we had a GREAT turnout!

Christina Britton's art collection expanded as she snapped up the fresh painterly Bumper Crop AND  Vegas Gold!

Tiffany Ruth glowed as she frolicked off with Princess Fowl for her fancy Victorian abode.

  • V, from Visual Producers, directed some mirrored images then pressed on to meet his next lucky client
  • Former Oregonian staffers: Connie Newton & Fred Joe. Fred just photographed Larry Hagman and the Emmys.
  • Plenty of painters: Suzy Kitman  -- visit her work at Visage Eyewear in the Pearl district this month
    • Quin Sweetman - master of soft, moody portraits
    • Christopher Mooney -- he's in the Rental Sales Gallery spring show on April 18
    • Mason Parker (we love his octopus chandelier! His gorgeous watercolor cards are at Flower Temple by Audrey),
    • Encaustic master/portait artist Bill Rollins who fundraises with my favorite group - the Oregon Lions. Bill has a long history in Portland retail and was a member at Talisman Gallery on Alberta until it closed

Kea Chiang overheard Buckman Mayor Sheila Baraga be approached by a gritty rock star who asked "Are you married?" When [matchmaker] Sheila replied "No," rockstar became so flustered that he could do nothing shy of walk away confused by her rare reply.

We saw kitschy photos of the colorful vintage radios being refurbished by Kea's husband who is launching Retro Radio Farm. Randy delighted all with his lovely sax music. We still need a name for the mink hat by Elizabeth Rohloff. We like "Fido."

This show is up all of April 2014. The hours are a bit spotty -- 11-3 weekdays and 8-1 on Saturdays. It's well worth the walk!

Blondie: A Salon is at 1225 SW Alder. Loo for white lettering in the window, as it is hard to find, but well worth the hunt!

 

  Next month we are showing at Hawthorne near 7th.
