Ryan Ao Gallery Grand Opening a Blockbuster success!
HERE'S the top 25 pics from the Ryan Ao Gallery grand opening. Thank you to Hector of the PDX Bubble Boys for being our photographer for the night (since he couldn't do the big bubbles with his partner Jeff due to the rain!) Again, blown away by all the amazing people that came to support the grand opening of our new gallery last night. there was a line around the corner (probably 100-150 people showed up throughout the night), lots of old friends and new friends (and even Amanda Kay Creighton showed up as well for a sweet random/chance reunion after 3 years since we last saw each other after Within Reach ended) as well as skype with Aimee Stewart (next shows artist on Feb. 5ish) and the Within Reach Movie poster artist (so kinda a mini-reunion there), Constance had many of her old massage school friends show up (even two friends we know randomly knew each other), Tina's in Dundee had amazing gourmet food and wine (they even had Caviar!) and the place was so packed at a few moments there was hardly any room to stand! We are so proud of St. Johns community, Portland our new home, and the warm welcome for this gallery. Thank you all!! We are looking forward to much more fun and love to come!
