Before The Pearl was The Pearl, it was a forgotten industrial district and home to many burgeoning Portland artists whose work would help transform that entire section of the city. Richard Melloy is one of those artists. Now calling Foster-Powell his home, Melloy continues to build on his decades-long career as a painter and commercial illustrator.
Join us on August 27 at 6 pm at Ford Gallery for Richard Melloy’s “Present In Time” an exhibit of new works by the artist as well as a collection of his most popular prints.
“Melloy is more than an accomplished painter—he is an inspiration for creative longevity,” PDX Magazine wrote of Melloy. “[He’s] bullheaded enough not to quit and smart enough to adapt throughout a long career.”

We will hold an artist tour at 7 p.m., and Melloy will join us that evening downstairs at the Mechanical event space for PDX Magazine’s Last Saturday Salon
The show will run from August 27 – September 17.
