Join us for another awesome Northwest Portland event!
The Pearl District’s first First Thursday of 2011 is happening tomorrow, January 6th, from 6pm-9pm. During this monthly event, art galleries, wine shops and restaurants and bars will have extended hours while thousands of residents and visitors join the street event. There will be many Northwest Portland art galleries open for public viewings, as well as local artists showing off and selling their goods. First Thursday stretches from West Burnside to NW Johnson from 10th to 13th Streets.
Powell’s Books will also be having a special event during First Thursday. Located in the Basil Hallward Gallery, there will be a celebration of the Portland Mercury‘s 10th birthday. This event will be exhibiting posters of every cover since the beginning of the newspaper, which turns out to be around 600! All proceeds from this event will benefit the Independent Publishing Resource Center.
