Next Saturday (May 17th) is the Art Hop on Alberta Street here in Portland!  Alberta hosts a thriving art walk every Last Thursday of the month and began an annual event called the Art Hop a few years ago.  With a number of galleries and hundreds of artists set up on the streets, along with spontaneous street performances and the obligatory tall bikes, low riding bikes, and other unique welded bicycle arrangements, the events on Alberta are always lively.  This Saturday, Rachel and I will be set up between NE 19th and 20th with brand new paintings and pendants!  The official time for the Art Hop is 11am – 6pm, check the Art on Alberta site for more info.
