PONSHOP in Portland

Portland, Oregon is a really great city. Scarlett described it best as a "Kinder, Cleaner, and Gentler Brooklyn." Below are some photos from our trip. To view more pics from our art show, click here.
A special shout out goes to our hosts and The Life Gallery owners, Damon Ayers and Tessie Word. They, of course, showed us a great time in Portland and we had a blast with their friends...
