About Us

Urban Art Network is an organization dedicated to creating a thriving arts culture for independent artists. The Urban Art Network is composed entirely of local artists. We are collectively engaged in:

  • Creating new venues for creative expression where artists can show and sell their work
  • Working with businesses and other organizations to promote the arts
  • Networking and outreach for both established and emerging artists

Our main event is the Street Gallery in the Pearl District. This event is open to the public, rain or shine, every First Thursday (5pm - 10pm) April through November.

The current board members are Ryan Birkland, Dana Gravelle and Jennifer Kapnek.
