Every third Thursday of the month, RACC (Regional Arts & Culture Council) hosts ART SPARK, a gathering described as “a monthly mingling of artists of all sort to meet, discuss, blather, applaud and plot the growth of arts in Portland”. Last night I decided to check it out, and was pleasantly surprised by the variety of folks representing the rich Portland art scene. Imagine a no-host cocktail/garden party with myriad possibilities for connections in the arts. I met a new graduate looking for work teaching art, a juror for the Scholastic Art Awards, a “for hire” cartoonist, gallery owners, grant recipients, a marketing and communication consultant, painters, sculptors, and an art counselor who will help you “explore your unique aesthetic”.... two entertaining hours well spent networking in the arts. July’s ART SPARK will be held on the rooftop of the Hotel Deluxe. See you there!
