Wow! What a weekend. Jeff and I took Amtrak down to Portland. The hotel we stayed in had a Warhol on each floor. We got to go to clark:lewis and see Dolan. And then stopped by the The Eagle for a minute.
We saw the Contemporary Awards exhibit and it was amazing. I'm surprised at how well each artist fit with each other -- in an unintentional way. Then we visited the rest of the museum. Some really great stuff. We took a couple pics (sans flash) and totally got caught. Security wasn't tailing us -- they were hovering about 2 feet away. I felt like we were gonna get arrested. ; )
Then Jeff's gallery, Pulliam-Deffenbaugh put on a dinner (really a collector named Joe put on the dinner, hosted at Rod/Glen's house cooked by Jason -- collaboration at its best. Levi made a great soundtrack for the evening). SO FUN. All great folks. Nice to meet Deneen and Joe.
Then we went back to the hotel and watched a movie and raided the wet bar. A super fun trip -- THANKS Jeff.
Got to have breakfast with Dolan and Anita and met Isabella (finally). Then called Joey and we grabbed a ride back with him to Seattle. We got sidetracked at a river for the afternoon swimming and jumping out of trees (well, he did -- I stayed on the large hill and jumped). The perfect day. Grabbed milkshakes on the way home.
