It’s not often that we obtain a whole collection of great pieces by a single artist. Usually we’re lucky to get a few pieces, enough to drag out in a small series of blog posts over the course of a work week. Sometimes we mix things up and combine them into one big post.
This time we’re going with the one big post option, so this is going to take a while.
We have 13 carved wood panels generously donated by one of our institutional supporters. We were planning on making these the center piece of the Art & Artifacts sale but since we canceled that event this year they just lingered in storage. And then some disappeared and then reappeared (strange as it was).
And now we have them for you.
All the pieces were carved by the same local Portland area artist who has/had the last name of Himes. I can’t be certain but I suspect they were a descendent of the influential Portlander George Himes. They are in good to excellent condition and are at our Tualatin store, 8380 SW Nyberg St, 503-612-0020.
