Redux Boutique & Gallery specializes in handmade, local and indie designer jewelry, accessories and art.
The aesthetic of our boutique is rooted in a crafty, edgy, clever sensibility, featuring artisans who utilize unusual design, re-purposed objects and recycled materials. We promote affordability, sustainability and quality in craftsmanship from local indie artisans as well as fair-trade import companies abroad. We carry work from over 300 artisans and companies, and though not everything in our brick-and-mortar store is local and handmade, the majority of it certainly is.
Our opening receptions in the Gallery feature either solo or group shows of all local artists, and rotate every-other-month starting each year fresh in February.
The Lineup of upcoming shows at Redux!
2019 // SCHEDULE :
FEB-MARCH //BOTANICAL BURLESQUE // GROUP SHOW
Theme: Featuring female Northwest artists who delight at the intersection of botanicals and artistic expression, self love and the female form.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Botanical Burlesque explores concepts of divine femininity, the natural world, flower symbolism, romance and sensuality, dressing and un-dressing as self-care, performance and personal power.
APRIL-MAY// DELINEATION // GROUP SHOW
Theme: Showcasing illustrative artists and their amazing mastery of line-work. Our theme for this show reveals a variety of different methods artists use in defining space, carving out edges, and focusing on an object. Within “Delineation” describes the action of describing or portraying something precisely, and how artists create form language through various methods and techniques in mark-making.
JUNE-JULY// WOMEN ICONS // GROUP SHOW
Theme: We asked local artists to create portraits featuring influential women from the past or present who inspire them. Ranging from the well-known to the obscure, we can’t wait to see which female icon these four artists have chosen to immortalize in their work.
AUG-SEPT// SKIN DEEP // GROUP SHOW
Theme: We asked several popular Tattoo artists in town to share some of their fine artwork as it appeared on paper before it translated to their client’s skin. In some instances these are inspiration pieces for a later tattoo, for others, these are the actual finished full-scale pieces resulting from working on a custom piece with the client. SKIN DEEP GROUP SHOW features 9 amazing local tattoo artists:
Emmanuel Hele – Rosewater Tattoo
Lynn Marie – Rosewater Tattoo
Em Greenseth– elmpixie Tattoo
David Stein – Grizzly Tattoo
Rebecca Flaum – Oak Iris Tattoo
Agnes Hamilton – Hive Tattoo
Joshum Hardy – Evolved Arts
Brianna Belong – Evolved Arts
Jessica Helmke – Infinity Tattoo
Celebrating the contemporary artistry of some of Portland’s finest tattoo artists, we are stoked to present this exhibition demonstrating Portland’s continued knack for smashing conventions and elevating tattoo artistry to extraordinary heights.
OCT-NOV// CURIOUS BEASTS // GROUP SHOW
Theme: The fantastical creatures born from artist’s imaginations. Mythical animal hybrids that appear in art can be whimsical, alluring, and sometimes confrontational. We invite artists to delve into their dreams and nightmares to visually represent the beasts within.
