June First Thursday

Hello UAN Artists!

We are very happy to share that the First Thursday Street Gallery officially began in May.

Although only one block long, we had space for social distancing and the evening marked a good beginning point to grow from. Thank you to the amazing artists who displayed in our inaugural event.

The 21st Season

There are 5 remaining First Thursday Street Gallery events this season.

Spaces are limited and preference will be given to artists who paid for last season. Although we had hoped to a no-cost season, we were unable to secure funding. Instead we will have a reduced cost season, with all spaces $20.00. We are aware this has been a very difficult time for working artists, if you require a reduced or no-cost payment please reach out to us by email here.

We will accept e-mail reservations for 20 spaces only. Once your reservation is confirmed you will be sent a payment link for confirmation. All other spaces will be first come walk-in spaces. Please note: If you are requesting a credit from 2020, please be prepared with your receipt from payment last year.

Our return is enthusiastically supported by the City of Portland, The Pearl District Neighborhood Association, and The Pearl District Business Association. There is interest and excitement about our return and our event growing. Events will follow social distancing guidelines, and within the street gallery we request masks be worn both by vendors and patrons.
