Grand Opening Celebration!

Join Us for our beautiful store’s Grand Opening on November 8th, from 3-8pm, 4042 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland. Meet and Greet the Artisans of Artistic Portland! Enjoy our complimentary food and wine, live music, silent auction, prizes, and entertainment!

Located in the Hollywood District of NE Portland, Artistic Portland is a unique artists’ cooperative, featuring work from 30+ artists in the Portland area. The shop features hundreds of handcrafted products and fine art prints. Felted sculptures, paintings, ceramic art pieces, screen-printed t-shirts, wooden furniture, skincare products, repurposed doll statues, hand-blown glass, and seemingly endless types of jewellery are just some of many handcrafted items that greet visitors.

The idea of an artists’ Co-op and retail store were created by Portland-area artisans was initiated by artists on the internet, who then gathered in person to flesh out the ideas they were fomenting online. Their mission: to open a cooperatively run retail store that sells locally made and handcrafted goods, to pool financial investments required to start a small business, and to share in all the responsibilities and rewards of a co-operative retail store.

Artistic Portland is cooperatively owned and operated. All featured artisans are owner/operators of the business. Decisions are made collectively at monthly membership meetings and board meetings. Each month, through a jury process, new applicants have the opportunity to join the co-op.

Member/owner Alia Paloma, of Uncostumed, appreciates the local aspect of running a small business, “I am so excited to help support and sustain our local economy by supporting the people in my community that create beautiful and functional works of art.”

Staffed by member/owners, the store features artists on location. Co-op members volunteer up to four days a month working in the shop. With this sharing of labor, Artistic Portland is open to the public more than 40 hours per week.

Willow Sauerwein, of Estuary Magicks, says: “We offer soulful, quality work that provides an alternative to pre-made big-box store buying. Since our work is produced locally, by hand, it lacks the environmental cost of factories, warehouses, and shipping. When you come into the store, and meet the artisans, your purchases turn from a business transaction into a relationship.”

Artistic Portland, located at 4042 NE Sandy – in the Hollywood District – is open 7 days a week, from 11am-7pm on Sunday-Thursday and 11am-9pm on Friday-Saturday.
