Did you miss going to Aimee Erickson’s reception last week? No worries! you can join us Thursday, July 14, 1:00  for a visit with Aimee and to see her work from her residency at the University Club. (Its an event just for us)!

Not only will we get to see Aimee’s paintings from the time of her residency at the University Club, we'll get to visit the historic building itself. (The University Club is a social club that was founded in 1898.  It is a members-only establishment. it is on the National Registry of Historic Structures).

University Club of Portland 1225 SW. 6th Avenue

Bonus! For those who are interested we will also meet afterwards at the Behind the Museum Café for a coffee, tea and/or a bite…(just to round out the day...this is our regular art discussion/sketching day so some of us are making an entire day of it). 1229 SW 10th Avenue

*Important: The University Club has a dress code, no shorts, tee shirts, athletic wear and cell phone use is not allowed except in designated places. Parking: Nearby parking for guests is available in both the Unitus Building and the PacWest Center directly across 6th Avenue from the Club. Many street meters are available throughout the downtown corridor as well.

RSVP is not required, but if you are certain you are coming go ahead and send us a note so we can get an idea of the number.

See you there!

Aimee’s work has been awarded top prizes from multiple national competitions, including Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, and the Portrait Society of America; her plein air paintings have won first place in many major outdoor painting events.
