A few weeks ago Karen Hutton came out to Portland for the opening of LIL Galleries (lilgalleries.com). There was a good turnout, and it fell on the “First Friday” at the building so a bunch of people were there checking out other local businesses and artists. The actual “gallery” is in the janitor’s closet (seriously) but looks beautiful and was flanked by dozens of gorgeous prints from the artists (listed below) hanging on the walls.

There was definitely some amazing talent at this event and it was a very unique and beautiful viewing experience. To watch the videos shown in the gallery featuring work from Karen Hutton, Brian Matiash, Jaime Ibarra and Ricardo Lagos, check out the LIL Galleries YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/LILGalleries

For the video: I was inspired by Petra Cross‘s stop-motion technique so I decided to create one of my own which spanned over two days, showing the gallery opening and the photowalk in PDX. It was really fun to create (I used my Fuji x100), and since I’m already familiar with creating timelapse movies this was just a variation of that process. So much fun … thanks for the inspiration, Petra!

BTW, I love how the random thumbnail picked a photo of me and Brian! :)
