The art of Trish Grantham is to me a quintessential piece of Portland's visual culture. Not only is it publicly visible on the Fresh Pot sign, and on the walls of many a local collector, but her animal themes are also probably at least partially responsible for the animal-portrait obsession still prevalent as an art and design theme. (Birds! So many birds!) Now she's bringing us "The Secret Society of Our Hearts," and exhibit of new work on vintage paper and wood. It's taking place at Land, the new Buy Olympia brick 'n' mortar at 3925 N Mississippi, Friday Nov 6 at 6 pm, and will be up on the walls until December 6.


See what I mean about the birds?
