Scandals has been happy to lend its wall space to local artists for several years, and 2017 is no different.  New art shows open on first Thursdays and go for 1-2 months, so come on down and check out the latest show.  We love the opportunity to be a showcase for all the amazing talent found within and around our community.  If you are an artist or musician interested in presenting your talent to the Scandals’ family, email Munro.

My mom has always celebrated my imagination and creativity and encouraged me to explore nature - three things that gave me a good start as an artist.

I’m a Portland native who was homeschooled with three sisters for 8 years. All the women in my family have been consistently encouraging and supportive in whatever I am doing and remain my closest friends.

I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember, usually scenes of animals and nature. I am happiest when I am creating. My hope is to paint and draw things that have the same surreal or unusual quality of dreams. Dreams are magical and an important part of my life.

Although I’ve dabbled with many mediums I favor acrylic paints and black ink. The last few months I have spent preparing for this show while listening to audiobooks (mostly Stephen King) and daydreaming about my own future as a mom which will begin February of 2018.
