On February 22, 2013, from 7-11pm, Intown Church and Antler Gallery will present the eighth annual Works, an event that celebrates the diverse art and culture we enjoy here in Portland, OR. This "art happening" has become one of the most anticipated nights of the year and will feature some of Portland's most stunning visual artists; painters, sculptors, photographers, multi-media artists, and more, all showing their work within The Old Church, one of Portland's oldest and most beautiful buildings. Check out the video above of last year's event to get a taste of what Works is all about! (video shot by Erik Schultz, music by Ages and Ages)

This year's Works is proud to have a musical line-up that will blow you away... the gorgeous, expansive pop of Lost Lander, the haunting folk sounds of Alialujah Choir, and the avant garde experimentations of Like A Villain

In addition to the musical acts, local writer and raconteur Robert Bruce will entertain and provocate with his spoken-word performance.

Attendees will also enjoy great beer and sparkling wine paired with locally sourced food prepared by fantastic local chef, Berkely Braden.

We believe that celebrating the arts in our community is vital to keeping them strong, that's why we could think of no better way to do just that than to throw a huge party, and showcase as much amazing local talent as possible in one night! 

An event like this takes funding, and we are almost there – the “almost” is where you come in...your small (or large!) financial investment will help this year’s event be better than ever! Every contributor will receive proof of our appreciation!

Check out our blog, like our Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter for updates and information on Works, we hope to see you there!

Where: The Old Church on SW 11th and Clay St., Portland OR

When: Friday, February 22, 2013 7-11PM

(Admission is $10 at the door)
