April Gallery Space

To celebrate Wieden+Kennedy Founders’ Day we have invited Illustrator and former W+Ker Michael Illick to cover our gallery walls with his irreverent style and sense of humor.

Over a period of two days Michael has drawn an epic battle of The Clan of Dan vs. The Clan of David. From the east Dan’s band of mischievous monkeys pelt apple pie slices mercilessly towards Dave's band of Neanderthal oafs in the west. It is an ambitious composition of grand proportions. Michael calls it his Guernica, I call it the Lascaux of the Pearl.  

Stop by and enjoy its overall grandeur, but also take time to look more closely and giggle at the cartoon antics of this remarkable cast of crazies.

It’s Freshershist

Latest campaign from Old Spice supports the launch of the Fresh Collection, a line of antiperspirant/deodorants that give guys the chance to smell like some of the freshest places on earth.

Remember scratch and sniff? Well, we’re going to offer you “rub and sniff”. Look for the ads starting in April.

Art Lovers

A message from John Jay

For those who yearn to see the big stars of international contemporary art in person and not just in a magazine or blog then make a stop at our 

Portland Art Museum to see “Disquieted”. 

For our little town to host such an all-star group of artists, to be curated from scratch and not simply a pick-up of an existing traveling show…

the collection is like a primer on who is who in contemporary art. To all of you who follow art, there may be nothing brand new…what’s new is that it all sits together here in Portland.
