Threaded. The Runway Show. With Jacob A. M. Powers & Friends
An urban runway show that clashes the gritty stylings of budding Portland-based painter Jacob A. M. Powers, with the beauty and grace of fine art and fashion. The set and clothing will be designed in-house by Powers and his team. Music, lights, and beauty… Portland at it’s finest.
Jacob A. M. Powers is a Portland native and self taught painter working in mixed media with salvaged material. He uses written word, fine detail and crude brush strokes to create surreal and figurative works that poke fun and question the world around him. Looking to become a permanent fixture in the Portland landscape, Powers is always looking for new challenges to facilitate greater connection to others and beautify public and private space alike. He first debuted his work in March of 2018 throwing his own independent, solo exhibition by the moniker “1905.” Since then Powers has hung 6 installations in restaurants and galleries in the downtown Portland area.
