Students working in my studio


P:ear presents Roots & Clouds a Solo Exhibition by Jesse Reno opens First Thursday in Portland, 6-8pm

September 11th, 2015

I am very excited to be working again with the local non- profit p:ear.  P:ear builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives. Each year their programs serve almost 900 homeless and transitional young people ages 15 to 24.

More information about p:ear and my exhibition can be viewed at their website : http://pearmentor.org/gallery/

My Solo exhibition opens October 1st from 6pm -8pm, I will be in attendance.  The show will be open by appointment through November.

I will be showing my current work which  deals with the underlying connections of what is or appears to be fragmented and my attempt and the ability to make those connections by using instinct and emotion over logic and reason.
