First Tuesday Gallery Reception - Underneath It All: Collage by Amy Mintonye

August 5 – September 30 Through collage and acrylics, artist Amy Mintonye weaves found images into scenes of totemic power, exploring the inner and outer forces that bear upon daily existence. From floods, gravity, and other natural forces, to systemic forces such as class inequality and alienation, Mintonye’s layered compositions unearth the patterns of struggle and resilience that define the human character. Uplifting in their beauty and symbolic nuance, these are works that remind us of art’s power to articulate the human drama and spirit. This First Tuesday reception is held in honor of the artists exhibiting at the Walters. Hors d’oeuves provided by Claey’s Catering. Live music by Val Blaha. This is a free event.

8th Annual Women's Leadership Luncheon

Over the last 11 years, 15,000 leaders have been supported through the Center for Women’s Leadership’s mentorship, service programs and educational resources. Please join us this year as we celebrate! At last year’s annual Leadership Luncheon, we announced we were changing our name to the Center for Women’s Leadership to re-affirm our commitment to supporting the leadership goals of women and girls across sectors. We believe that all women and girls should be thinking about their own leadership early and often, so that it’s second nature for them to raise their voice to make change and raise their hand to lead, no matter the leadership path they choose. In 2014, we invite you to join us at our event to honor 4 incredible women who have made a difference in Oregon through their leadership in the arts, politics, law, and business. This year, we honor Multnomah County Judge Adrienne Nelson, Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber Executive Director Gale Castillo, PICA Executive Director Victoria Frey, and Congresswoman Darlene Hooley. Proceeds go to support our life-changing high school girls and college women's programs! To support the leadership potential of women and girls across sectors, communities and careers, you can make a difference through your sponsorship! Individual tickets - $100 Please contact our Executive Director, Sunny Petit at 503.725.2895 or at cwlinfo@pdx.edu for more information about sponsorship levels.
