About Curious Gallery:
Long before public museums became a feature of many cities, private citizens in Europe and elsewhere formed their own extensive collections of scientific specimens and cultural artifacts meant to educate and inspire their beholders. A longtime collector of natural history specimens, Portland artist and author Lupa wanted to increase awareness and appreciation of wunderkammern (“wonder cabinets”), or cabinets of curiosity, and their eclectic contents. Curious Gallery is the result, a weekend of exhibits, presentations, hands-on workshops, and special programming for lovers of taxidermy, natural wonders, and strange treasures old & new.
Now in its fourth year, Curious Gallery returns to the Crowne Plaza Portland on January 7-8, 2017. We’ll be featuring two days of panels, workshops and other programming, and transforming the grand foyer of the event into a beautiful wunderkammer of art. You’ll be able to bring home curiosities from our selection of vendors.
Betsy, Nathan and Tempest will perform on both Saturday and Sunday -- exact schedule/times TBD (check back here just before the festival for details).
