More than 100 artists are taking over the Pearl District on Labor Day weekend to showcase their craft and skills.
If you love art in all its forms, you won’t want to miss Art in the Pearl. The annual event was started in 1997 by fifteen artists who wanted to showcase high-quality, handmade works in a welcoming environment.
During Labor Day weekend, head to the North Park Blocks in Portland for the 25th Annual Art in the Pearl where more than 100 artists display and sell their work. Art forms include paint, photography, glass, clay, metal, jewelry, fabric and wood.
Artist demonstrations will take place all three days of the festival, including sculptors, metalworkers, woodworkers, calligraphers, and handweavers. Entertainment on the stage will include various dancers, musicians and performers.
There will also be an education pavilion with hands-on activities for children and adults. Food will be available for purchase.
Parking can be found street side as well as city lots as NW Broadway and Couch, NW Park and Gleason, NW 9th and Davis and NW 9th and Couch.
