Greetings and welcome to our blog! Portland Art Collective is a group of 25 women artists who have been meeting for almost five years now. We work in diverse mediums from paint to collage, beads to glass, fiber to metal, often using found or recycled materials. The highlight of our monthly meetings is always an extensive show-and-tell session. We hope our blog will allow you to share in our enthusiasm as you see samples of some of our work.
