Hirsch and Lambert at Sidestreet Arts

Gary Hirsch and Roberta Lampert are the featured artists at Sidestreet Arts for the month of August. Hirsch is a prolific painter, street artist, improviser and presenter on the magic of the improvised creative process. He creates visual worlds where he explores universal themes of joy, fear and how our inner and outer lives help shape our reality. 

You may have seen his many murals on the exterior walls of the Sidestreet Arts building and now you have a chance to bring ones like this 2’ x 3’ acrylic on wood piece above into your own space.

Roberta Lampert “Sundown Vase

Having lived in the Portland area since 1978, Lampert particularly enjoys her proximity to wilderness areas and incorporates those influences into her work, which focuses on shapes and textures inspired by nature. She has developed a production line of thrown and hand-built electric-fired porcelain. Of late, she has also joined the local wood firing community, capturing the organic effects of flames, ash and wind on her pieces.

The show runs Thursday, August 4-Sunday, August 28 with the artist in the gallery for the First Friday Artwalk on the 5th, 5-7 pm. Sidestreet Arts, 140 SE 28th Ave., is open Thursday-Sunday, 12-5 pm and online at sidestreetarts.com.
