If you know anything about Portland retail, you know Yo! Vintage, now permanently housed in the buzzy Blackbox building at SW 13th and Burnside. Their top-of-mind-ness is, in part, due to the frequency with which they host and participate in events, as they are this evening from 6-9 at the shop, but this one's a little bit different. Owner Sarah Radcliffe originally hails from England, and her sister's crossing the pond for a visit along with the company she works for, Tigerprint Studios a large gift/card/packaging design firm with offices in Tokyo, London, and Bradford.
They've chosen Portland as the destination for their current "inspiration trip," and Yo! in turn is hosting a show of their prints and paintings. But! That's not all: Part of the point of their coming here is to network with artists living in Portland and to put some feelers out for potential freelancers. So, freelancers, guess what you're doing tonight?
