6 Free St.
EVEN THE BUGS AND ANIMALS ARE SAD is a grouping of work that is part of a larger series called LEARNING HOW TO CRY WHILE DRIVING UP GHOST MOUNTAIN. This work presents narratives of a woman in a car and spirits in subtle interactions with each other. This series of paintings is driven by the act of learning how to let go of a loved one in the present and dealing with the metaphorical ghosts of the past.

The Wellness Connection is hosting an open house at its Portland dispensary. Curious about the benefits of medical cannabis and CBD? Come tour the dispensary and learn about the many benefits of nature's best medicine. On display for the month of September is art work by Molly Anathan. "I view most of my abstract work as the result of individual conversations between myself and the piece that I am creating. I rarely plan ahead, and start with simple child-like mark making. The work develops organically and almost spiritually as I respond to what I see and feel that painting “is asking for”. The materials and techniques I use are varied, ranging from xerox-transfer to colored pencil, collage, and acrylic paint. I will occasionally incorporate found objects and nature-based materials. The results are somewhat mysterious, eclectic, organic, sometimes whimsical, and always visceral." -Molly Anathan
