Last month I had the fantastic opportunity to be a participating artist at the First Tuesday Art Walk on Main Street in Hillsboro, Oregon. I displayed documentary photos I shot of Manaia Coffee House and Island Grill. It was a wonderful community experience and I was grateful for all who attended. It was a casual affair at Manaia Coffee House, along with complimentary food courtesy of Judith Shortt of Phoenix Group Real Estate.
First Tuesday happens each month in Hillsboro and it’s growing bit by bit, because of the efforts of people like Judith Shortt and especially because of Linda Holland, seen in the photos. She is seen here with her artwork and Zach Clark, owner of Clark’s Bistro and Pub and a new host of First Tuesday.
Other participating locations are Manaia Coffee House, Summa Real Estate (“where you get your wine on.” – Linda), Washington County Museum, Walters Cultural Arts Center, Sequoia Artists Studios, and Influence Music Hall.
Linda Holland is the organizer of First Tuesday and works tirelessly to not only find participating artists, but also promote them (Hint to local artists: be nice to her and you might get a press release photo in the Hillsboro Tribune). She is an awesome person. Hillsboro is lucky she is so gracious with her time and energy.
