Monthly Featured Artists
Scandals has been happy to lend its wall space to local artists for several years, and 2015 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.
Chris Haberman is a working writer, painter and musician native to the Portland area. He has shown artwork around town for the last several years. Aside from painting, he has published poetry, journalism and fiction; being awarded the Tom Doulis Fiction award, the Wilma Morrison award for excellence in journalism and is a member to the Academy of American Poets. "All of my artwork is created on found (post-consumer materials) objects, given or found on the streets and alleyways of Portland, OR, a discarded cabinet door, a table top or the occasional battered street sign quickly becomes the backdrop for a integrated puzzle of human figures. The multitude of images pushed together with words, objects and figures reflects the complexity of our modern life. The images created are 'folk-art' in nature, a spontaneous layering of bright color and art material (paint, glue, charcoal, ink pen, oil stik, lipstick, etc. ) reflecting people, politics, the region, pop-culture, media, music, film and literature."
