This past First Friday, Pedal Bike Tours led a spectacular evening ride to three SE Portland art galleries. If you haven’t joined us for one of our free First Friday Art by Bike rides, what are you waiting for? Rides start at the shop at 6pm. All are welcome.
Our night began with a stop at Pushdot Studio on SE 11th to view Friderike Heuer’s exhibition, (S)elective Affinities/ Wahlverwandschaften. The delicious food and cozy space offered a perfect environment for contemplating the interesting juxtaposition of unique characters and scenery in Friderike’s work.

From Pushdot, we traveled up Clinton St. to visit the always welcoming, Studio 2507. Here we encountered the subdued and moody images created by Travis Wade for “mixed media paintings by a serious and dark man.”

Finally we traveled to The Bike Show for bikey art, live music by Halley the Harpist, Bece Kidder, and Crankmychain, delicious biscuits from the Biscuit Bike, and the occasional robot/dinosaur attack. This show was hosted by The Splendorporium and Art for Life Children’s Gallery, a fascinating space near Powell City Park. The little people were in full force and brought a lot of great energy to the show. Also Crankmychain gave us all plenty of reason to dance as we enjoyed the artwork! Thanks Splendorporium!
