Featuring Nicole Williford and p:ear youth

The p:ear gallery is proud to present “Abide”, a collection of artwork by Nicole Williford. This stunning collection of one of Portland’s strongest artistic voices is a stirring reflection into portraiture artwork of individuals who are often overlooked in society. With each piece of work Williford brings focus to the individual and what connects them to relationships within their community, circumstances and self. Nicole’s work will be showcased alongside p:ear youth artwork.

p:ear’s unique Job Training Program, “Coffee Works” will also be open during the openings, with youth in the program serving complimentary espresso drinks and drip coffee.
