I am doing a couple of blog postings from Portland, Oregon – the “City of Bridges” (aka City of Roses, Stumptown, PDX or Portlandia). In town for the Bullseye Gallery talk (at the BE Resource Center) – I have a chance to look around this groovy, funky town that has quickly become one of my fav cities.

Cool things about Portland:
Powells Books: I could have spent the entire weekend roaming the aisles of this place.


Powell’s Bookstore is addictive.

Good Food: Portland has interesting zoning in the downtown that allows street food truck vendors to flourish. Many of the downtown parking lots are fringed with an amazing assortment of high quality food trucks.


A Sense of Style: Portland has this in many ways – the city has a strong hipster vibe, similar to the hippie feel of Asheville, NC – and lampooned in the TV show Portlandia. It also has the art scene that includes a strong glass presence that Bullseye Factory and Gallery bring to the town. Bullseye Gallery opened the Facture show this past week, and held a panel discussion on Sunday. Below are some shots from the opening.
