Join us at BRINK, the Fifth annual Audubon Society of Portland benefit show at Antler Gallery!
You won’t want to miss this unique show, which features regionally and nationally celebrated artists inspired by wildlife and the natural world, focusing on the theme of extinction.
These new, original pieces will be on display and offered for sale, with 20% of all sales donated to the Audubon Society of Portland. Antler Gallery founders and curators Susannah Kelly and Neil M. Perry believe strongly in Portland Audubon’s mission to protect birds, wildlife, and habitat. Over the past four years, the gallery has raised more than $11,000 to support wildlife conservation across Oregon.
“We are thrilled to be sharing Antler Gallery’s five-year anniversary with BRINK,” said Neil. “We feel so fortunate to be able to partner with the Audubon Society every January, and truly appreciate the incredible resource they are, both through their tireless work to protect the environment and their education outreach to future generations.
Brin Levinson, one of the artists whose work will appear in the show, shared, “I am so excited to once again participate in Antler’s BRINK show. I love that the relationship with the Audubon Society of Portland extends beyond the BRINK exhibition dates—from life drawing sessions with their education birds, to guided tours through their sanctuary. As an artist who focuses on animals and the natural world, it’s wonderful to be a part of this community of creatives and environmental protectors.”
Participating artists include Vanessa Foley, Sam Wolfe Connelly, Josie Morway, Brin Levinson, Erika Sanada, Jennifer Parks, Aunia Kahn, Brian Mashburn, Courtney Brims, Zoe Keller, Teaghan White, Susannah Kelly, J. S. Weis, Sabrina Jackson, Neil Perry, Audrey Pongracz, Chris Austin, Keith Carter, Rachel Sabin, Mark Rogers, and Johnny Acurso.
In addition to the donation from sales, there will be other fundraising events at the gallery during opening night and throughout the show.
