galleryHOMELAND is opening a temporary outpost in Berlin, taking the work of a slate of Portland-based artists to the heart a vibrant European arts scene via their East/West Berlin project. A partnership with the Brooklyn’s kickass Dam, Stuhltrager gallery, East/West Berlin will be six months of exhibitions and programs by artists from both HOMELAND and Dam, Stuhltrager. For Portland artists who’ve shown regionally or nationally, this is a major opportunity to put their work before and international audience. Kudos to Paul Middendorf and Caitlin Moore of galleryHOMELAND for making this happen.

Tomorrow night, Saturday August 22 at 7 PM, join galleryHOMELAND at the home of Portland-based artist Jesse Hayward (6227 NE 45th) for food, drinks, and entertainment to support East/West Berlin with a sliding scale donation of $10-20 (or more!). Deepening Portland’s connectivity to the greater art world is critical. Let’s make it happen.

Team HOMELAND for EAST/WEST BERLIN includes Holly Andres, Josh Arseneau, Damien Gilley, Dan Gilsdorf, Sean Healy, Christoph Heuppi, Victor Maldonado, Ethan Rose, Vanessa Renwick, and Joe Thurston. First exhibition out of the gate? Work by Josh Arseneau. See the East/West Berlin website for a full lineup of artists (including those from the East) and exhibition dates.
