Studio Art Show featuring work by Fleurette Farley Estes and Carrie Cole

A studio art show kicking off a month-long exhibit will take place Sunday, March 4th from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., in the studio of local artist Carrie Cole, featuring her own work and a collection of photographs by Fleurette Farley Estes. Carrie’s studio (and event location) is a bit of a hole-in-the-wall at 1704 NE 32nd Ave, residing above Just Right Awards Engraving and Awards at the corner of NE 32nd and Broadway. After the event, the studio will be open on Tuesdays from 1 - 6 p.m. 

Texas-based artist Fleurette Farley Estes has been a pseudo-realism painter for over two decades and has recently taken her photography from iPhone-hobby-based to professional. This is her first photography show, where she will be showing in three stories - music, travel, and her Navajo heritage and family life on the reservation. Born in New Mexico and educated in Arkansas, she now lives in San Antonio with her musician husband.

Carrie Cole is a Portland-based, Texas-born painter of mostly oil and acrylic abstracts and occasional skylines. Her current work, Float, explores place, identity, exploration. She met Fleurette at Harding University in Arkansas, where Fleurette graduated with a degree in art, while Carrie went on to four more colleges before graduating a with a degree that is not art. She lives in Portland with her family.

First Thursday in the Pearl

I will be showing art at Hoyt Realty's Vista North Pearl Condos at First Thursday in the Pearl for March. Drinks, hors devours, and a DJ will accompany a showing of my recent work in the lobby/showroom. Vista North Pearl Condominiums is "the newest building of the newest part of the Pearl, a place where curated living intersects with urban adventuring." - www.vistanorthpearl.com

"Started in 1986, First Thursday in the Pearl is a district-wide celebration that occurs on the first Thursday of every month. Originally a gathering of art collectors and dealers, the celebration has grown to a monthly event of over ten-thousand people that includes art enthusiasts, wine aficionados, and scenesters looking to see and be seen. When you combine a rich and thriving art scene with some of the best happy hour menus found in Portland, you get an event that has quickly become the place to be in Portland each month!" - www.explorethepearl.com
