Art Show at Collins Gallery!


I am very excited to announce about my art showing at Collins Gallery, the 3rd floor of Central Library in downtown Portland!  My origami art pieces are in one of the glass cases there, along with 11 other teaching artists who regularly teach at Multnomah County Library locations.  They are on display from now through mid-June.

I have been teaching library classes now for the past three years. Back in last fall when I heard about this opportunity to show artworks at Collins Gallery as a teaching artist, I jumped at the chance.  I've always loved the historic building of Central Library.  I still remember when I first stepped into the building... with the big open staircase, marble floors, and high ceilings.  That was probably when I was a college student, and I never could have imagined that I'd be doing this back then.  I feel extremely honored to exhibit my art pieces in such a beautiful place, as my first "formal" art show!

Please visit the 3rd floor of Central Library, if you are ever in the area!  Here is more info about the exhibition.
