Plan B
Artist Made Cards and Gifts

In these tough times we all need a “Plan B” and thankfully our friend Brad Rogers has come up with one that will benefit all of us. Plan B is a manifestation of our former neighboring gallery, B. Rogers Gallery, which has relocated to NE Broadway—with some great additions. Brad still exhibits monthly gallery shows, but wanted to open a store that would offer affordable art for everyone, and now there is Plan B!

Brad has hand picked a special inventory of items that he says, “piqued my interest and have a unique voice.” If you’re a fan of the ordinary—made extraordinary—you’ll love Dave Meeker’s work. Meeker takes everyday materials and recreates them into objects that delight and surprise. His bowls made of plastic forks and bolted rock sculptures will make you smile. You’ll surely want to bring his work home. Nikki McFerren creates colorful, mixed media art that she refers to as “curiosities”. She also makes one-of-a–kind cards using iconic images that will be perfect for someone you know. Besides beautiful hand made greeting cards and sculpture, Plan B offers affordable paintings, unique jewelry, and much more. Next time you’re looking for a really special card or gift visit this wonderful addition to our neighborhood art scene.

And, don't forget: Brad continues to represents 25 regional artists. If you’re looking for a great fine art piece, be sure to check out the back gallery.

Plan B can be found at 2415 NE Broadway, Portland, OR. The shop and gallery are open Thursday-Saturday, 11-6 and Sunday, 12-5. For extra fun, make this one of your stops on First Friday, June 5, 2009 from 6-9p.m. Phone: 503-236-0600
