'Frida Project' artwork to be unveiled in Hillsboro

The Frida Art Project was created over the summer during the Tuesday Night Market. Every Tuesday, local artists volunteered their talent to work on ten, 3-foot-by-3-foot panel paintings with a common theme combining landscapes and people of Oregon and Mexico. Each panel began with a stencil of famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. The artists were free to use their skills (and feelings) to surround the face of Frida with their interpretation of the project. read more>

It was a casual affair at Manaia Coffee House, along with complimentary food courtesy of Judith Shortt of Phoenix Group Real Estate. read more>

Private spaces show public art

Two years ago this fall, Forest Grove artist Helvi Smith tooled over to Lake Oswego to deliver some of her artwork for a show at the Lakewood Center. Driving down A Avenue and up State Street, Smith could barely keep her eyes on the road, so agog she was over the variety and amount of the city's public art. "Almost every corner had some sort of statue, sculpture or piece of public art," Smith recalled. read more>
