The Portland Project
presented by Art in Hand
I am pleased to be 1 of 54 Portland artists who will be creating a card in our own unique style for a deck of cards. I am the four of clubs. My initial brainstorming has me thinking I will go back to my vintage yearbooks for inspiration (as I like to do) and paint a school “club” of four members in the posed style that yearbook photographers love so much.
I will keep you updated as to when/where the auction for the original artworks will be held (see more info below). Also I will keep you updated as to how you can purchase the completed decks of cards.
Art in Hand – the Portland Project: Art in Hand™ will be creating a unique deck of playing cards showcasing the wide range of extraordinary artistic talent found in the Portland area. Each of the 54 cards in our deck will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind work of art by a local artist who will create a card in their own distinct style. Participating artists will not only see their work featured in The Portland Project deck but will also have a short personal bio plus a promotional link to their own website on our Art in Hand™ site. Additionally, their original artwork will be shown around the Portland area as part of the Project launch and will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to a worthy Portland arts non-profit.
