Susie Ghahremani, the award-winning illustrator renowned for her Boygirlparty® line of artwork and products, will be exhibiting at the Land Gallery in Portland, Oregon from August 10-September 2, 2012.

Ghahremani’s exhibit will be her first solo show in the Portland area.  Entitled “Clear Skies and Cloudy Days: Artwork and Explorations”, the show will feature a range of experiments from “clear skies”, the joyful, animal imagery traditionally found in Ghahremani’s work, to “cloudy” subject matter such as vignettes of extinct species and loved ones lost at sea, offering a bittersweet side of her work rarely seen by the public.  Created over the past three years, the artwork to be exhibited will include the artist’s personal pieces, which offer a thematic break from her well-recognized commercial work.

The opening reception for “Clear Skies and Cloudy Days” will run on August 10 from 6pm to 9pm, and will include drawings, paintings, and mixed media such as cross-stitch.  The artist, who is based in San Diego, will be in attendance and will personally install the work.

The city of Portland has long supported Ghahremani’s career. She has shown at Motel, Pony Club and the Wurst Gallery and has created projects with local businesses such as Little Otsu and Badge Bomb. Ghahremani’s handmade and licensed products can be found throughout Portland’s independent shops such as Powell’s, Presents of Mind and Land Gallery’s own shop.

Ghahremani says, “Portland is a haven for artists and crafters; the creative energy here is contagious. Taking a tip from the ‘Keep Portland Weird’ mural in town, I felt this would be the perfect place to share my more experimental works with an audience that is willing to see something new from me. ”
