Crow Arts Manor is a 500-square-foot space in Northeast Portland, Oregon that will be home to classes (writing, fine and graphic arts), music, readings, and gallery space.
Crow Arts Manor means to offer affordable, six-week classes from a roster of instructors known as some of Portland’s most talented writers and artists. Currently scheduled is Emily Kendal Frey: Poetry Workshop; Jesse Reklaw: Elements of Cartooning; Zachary Schomburg: The Narrative Prose Poem.
Crow Arts Manor has access to the original Baptist chapel in the building and will be hosting a number of musical performances and literary readings. The gallery will host 8-10 visual artists, with work rotating every three months. They are also in the process of building one of the largest libraries of independently produced books and journals in the country with the goal to have the space open six hours a day, inviting the public to come and read.
The grand opening is April 8-10.
