PushDot Gallery presents You Were Here – Portland; an exhibit featuring images of long-forgotten icons of Portland’s history. It opens Friday, September 4 and runs through Friday, October 30, at PushDot Gallery, inside the Ford Building, 2505 SE 11th at Division St.
Lyn Nance-Sasser and Stephen Sasser have created art together for four decades. Both were born in Portland, and have lived here their entire lives. They’ve seen plenty of changes and have been exhibiting their You Are Here prints since 2012. This is the final time they will do so.
The show consists of images of people, places and things no longer in our city. They’ve assembled 30+ new prints, including a large scale, wallpaper sized, 1956 service station tourist map of the city of Portland as it was then, and images ranging “from the magnificent to the mundane.”
20 percent of all sales will be donated to the Architectural Heritage Center in SE Portland. There are plans for a closing reception too on October 30, open from 6-8 pm.
