Betty Chilstrom art exhibit

November 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - January 14, 2019 @ 8:30 pm

Betty Chilstrom art exhibit

An art exhibit displaying the historic Portland paintings of Betty Chilstrom’s and a book launch of Through Her Eyes, by Robin Chilstrom opens at Cerimon House, 5131 NE 23rd Ave. on November 16 at 7 pm. Betty was a long time SE Portland resident who passed away in 2014.

The Art Exhibit, Historic Portland, 1955-1995 displays over 60 paintings from Betty’s collection of historic homes, industrial and rural scenes and buildings of our NW region.

Through Her Eyes is a book about the artist when she was “painting the town” during the second half of the 20th century.

The character of a city is made up of many things, including its history and neighborhood vitality. Living in the same Buckman neighborhood home for seventy years, Betty spent much of her time painting Portland’s historic homes, architecture and cityscapes before much of it was lost to urban renewal. The story, told by her youngest daughter, Robin, is the story of her life and evolution as a self-taught artist and how she came to create a stunning collection of over 800 existing paintings.

The show runs from November 16 to December 16 at Cerimon House. Gallery hours are available at: cerimonhouse.org or 503.307.9599.
