ABOUT our platform


Established in 2014, Art & About PDX is an artist-run initiative and platform documenting Portland's contemporary arts scene through photographic, written, and digital media. Thus participating in regional, national, and international contemporary art dialogues.

We present artworks, artists, galleries, and exhibitions, as they are happening, which then creates an archive. Our arts coverage is multi-faceted showcasing emerging to established artists, alternative spaces to well established art institutions. 

Our focus in arts coverage is primarily in Portland, Oregon, however, we do cover art happenings nationally and internationally as well, which inherently links and promotes Portland art scene beyond it's geography.
