Portland's 'Big 400 Art Show' is dubbed “the largest little art show in Oregon” by the Oregonian and it may be the biggest annual art show in the state based on size alone. We are talking about 400+ artists, 4000+ pieces of art, all 8x8 wood, all art is $40 each, cash and carry.

It is a rare opportunity for lovers of art and art collectors to get art by well known and emerging artists at rock bottom prices while also supporting a good cause.

The fun part is the art isn’t labeled, so you choose by what you love…or by recognizing the style of your favorite local artists. Great for your walls. Great for holiday gift giving for that special someone. When it is all said and done, 25% of proceeds go to the Oregon Food Bank to fight hunger in Oregon.

The show opens today at Pioneer Place Mall. Grand opening with a professional bagpipe player (Sir John Goff) and procession at 2 pm with Artists Reception to follow until 9pm.  Admission is free with a donation of a canned food item for the Oregon Food Bank. Organizers say to get there early as things go quick!!!! The show runs through January 12, 2014.
Organized by Peoples Art of Portland Gallery, Chris Haberman and Jason Brown presents, this event has become an annual holiday tradition. Google “Big 400 Art Show” for links to the event and gallery information.
