Don't miss alumni Melanie Stevens and Samantha Wall with Lisa Jarrett and Ashley Stull Meyers for the latest installment in the Portland Art Dealers Association Art Conversations series entitled Collecting Power: Art, Agency, and Community at Russo Lee Gallery September 20 6pm.

The invitation says: All women of color, all transplants to the Portland area, and all actively involved in the northwest visual art scene, the panelists will take us on a wide-ranging discussion of their experiences, struggles, and frustrations in navigating a predominantly white visual art world in Portland and beyond, as well as their hopes and their vision for the role that the visual arts can play in creating a more diverse and inclusive community in which to work and thrive.

This is the seventh installment of PADA's Art Conversations 2018, a monthly series of gallery talks focused on art collecting and the arts ecology of Portland, which will continue through December 2018.
