Glass Hat Opening Reception Tonight @ Gallery 1988

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Those who made their way to Golden Apple yesterday for the latest comic release would have found neighbor Gallery 1988 in full swing preparing for tonight's Glass Hat opening reception. The exhibition of artists from Portland's Grass Hut Art Collective will feature works from Grass Hut members Bwana Spoons, Martin Ontiveros, Le Merde, Apak, Justin "Scrappers" Morrison, and Arbito, as well as affiliate artists Shanggs, Shawn Wolfe, Gargamel, David Horvath, Kiyoshi Nakazawa and John Black.

According to the Grass Hut kids, we're to "imagine a club house (or hut) made of beards, fluorescent paint, driftwood, plastic toys, beat up skateboards, swimming suits, colorful string and bottle caps." We can do that, for sure, or better yet we can head to Melrose and La Brea at 7 pm tonight and experience the real deal.

You know, kinda like we did for G1988's last exhibition, Under The Influence: Masters of the Universe Tribute Art Show. Check out the pictures from that night's opening reception above. We highly recommend you hit up G1988 for availability info on prints and original pieces, as there just might be a limited edition He-Man and crew action figure you don't have.
