If you’re lucky enough to be in Portland right now (and we’re permanently jealous of anyone that is), and if you like cocktails and art (basically, if you have a soul) check out Beaverton art show “The Art of the Cocktail.” It’s a solo show featuring award-winning Portland artist Linda J. Baker, who took a departure from her usual still lifes and landscapes (see more of her work here) to focus on, “…the cocktail and the people who enjoy them.” I’m flattered to report that she chose to interpret two SpiritedLA cocktails for her show– I only wish I was there to see them!
The paintings will be showing June 1- June 25 at Art On Broadway, and if you’d like to check out the cocktail paintings with a cocktail in hand (like any sane person would), visit the gallery during the Artist Reception, Saturday June 11, 5pm-8pm, where Bootlegger’s Whiskey Bar will be showcasing a original cocktails and discussing the art that goes into mixing them.
