Plywerk Artist Series show now live
Korinne and I have been eagerly looking forward to the launch of our new rotating art show, the Plywerk Artist Series. Plywerk is a great, local company that mounts prints on sustainably harvested wood panels. The panels are all meticulously cut in a wood shop in SE Portland.
I love the clean look of Plywerk pieces, and it’s such a great alternative to framing a piece of art! They also sell blank panels, so that artists can create their own Plywerk masterpieces.
The current gallery of Plywerk prints from photographer Anthony Georgis and artist Jill Bliss will be up through the month of October. Each piece in the series is a limited edition item that is exclusively being showcased at Olio United.
One of my favorite pieces in the show is Beach photographed by Georgis. The dream-like image of the beach is so serene, I can stare at the scene all day. My other favorite work in the show is Bliss’ Poppies. The simple colors and delicate patterns remind me of cross stitched trims on vintage pillows.
You can shop for your favorite Plywerk Artist Series piece here. First ten customers to order a Georgis or Bliss print from the show will receive a complimentary mini-Plywerk (an example shown below) thanks to our friends at Plywerk!
