Arts and Culture Program Coordinator of OSLP and the Lincoln Gallery Jaime Walsh and I met in order to go over the artwork and take photographs of the pieces that would be featured this month in our headline news.  I walked into the Lincoln Gallery and was immediately greeted by amazing artwork on display with pieces hanging nicely along the walls as well as pieces displayed on easels.

I was in awe at the artwork, the autumn sun streamed through the window capturing each piece in it’s own particular light as Jaime placed the pieces on the easels.  You will see over the course of the month just how amazing this artwork is.

The Arts and Culture Program is an entity of Oregon Supported Living Program (OSPL).  The facility opened just this year and is located in the Whitaker neighborhood on the corner of 309 W 4th Street.
