At Milepost 5, there’s a First Friday art show from Luke Buser called Details. Featured will
be ten fumage (smoke paintings on canvas) and 35 concrete poetry-style pieces: “each piece consists of one swear word with the letters being collaged in a way to make the word unrecognizable up first look and somewhat pretty compared to its meaning!” 850 NE 81st Ave * 6 pm – 8 pm * free
First Friday in downtown Montavilla… I can’t find anything specifically going on, but generally according to the Montavilla/East Tabor Business Association: “Stark Street businesses stay open later featuring art, music and fashion on the first Friday of each month in Montavilla.”
Happy hour (6 pm – 9 pm) Americana / country / rock n roll with Lynn Conover & Little Sue at O’Neil Public House. Later in the evening (9:30 pm) is Tenebrook, music born out of “good times and porch pickin'”. 6000 NE Glisan St * 6 pm – 8 pm * ???
There’s a lecture on Native American Art of Oregon at Midland Library: “Portland State University scholar-in-residence Dr. Tracy J. Prince uses historical photos to demonstrate how Oregon’s tribes showed artistic expression via basketry; canoes; longhouses; beadwork (on clothing, necklaces, headdresses, and cradleboards); burial platforms; and rock art (petroglyphs and pictographs).” 805 SE 122nd Ave * 3 pm – 4:30 pm * free
Holgate Library, not too far down 82nd from Montavilla, is also hosts events throughout the week, with Chinese and Vietnamese story time on Saturday. 7905 SE Holgate Blvd
