April’s First Thursday in Portland’s Pearl District

First Thursday Art Walk

April marks the first month of 2016 that the Pearl District, in the heart of Portland, will close down 13th street and host artists for their monthly First Thursday event. Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty, located at the end of the 13th street art walk, will be holding our doors open as well, hosting local artist Robert Bickel and offering wine samples from Cooper Ridge Vineyard.

Robert Bickel

Robert Bickel is an architectural designer and artist who is fascinated by the concept of time and its dynamic relationship with the aesthetics of architectural structure. He explores this through the imagery of the passing wave in its graphic and conceptual power. Bickel’s work is a subjective expression of human limits in perceiving the fundamental physics of the universe.

“The structures and images humans see are not necessarily ‘real’ at all. They are moments in motion like the wave. In this relationship between time, the passing wave, and human consciousness lies great artistic potential which captivates me.”

Cooper Ridge Vineyard

Located in Roseburg, Oregon, Cooper Ridge Vineyard will be supplying wine for April’s First Thursday event. Cooper Ridge wines are produced with all estate grown grapes. They’re tasting room is located in the heart of the Umpqua with a breathtaking panoramic view over Garden Valley. Click here for more information about Cooper Ridge.
