Sculptural artist James Florschutz recently relocated to Portland last year. From a cultural perspective, Portland is fortunate to add such an accomplished sculptor to our local artistic roster. James and his wife, Mariel, moved their studio into the neighborhood and we are thrilled to present a special exhibition of milestone sculptures from James’ career before he moved to Portland. Please join us in welcoming James to Portland, come learn about his past work, and his upcoming shows at ADX on May 4, 2012, Field Work Design, Museum of Contemporary Craft, and Augen Gallery in August, 2012.
