PRESENTspace.org is dedicated to the examination, development and definition of art and culture. Our mission is to provide an independent and accessible forum for visual and performing art forms, including film, sculpture, dance, painting, photography, multimedia, poetry and performance art through socially relevant and engaged discourse. We implement exhibitions by local, regional and national artists in our community to promote the development of art and culture while aiding the foremost causes each month.

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER EXHIBIT @ PRESENTspace I We have work by two exciting artists in “FUSED”: JILL TORBERSON, who creates unique welded steel and mixed media works and JEFF SCHNABEL, whose gorgeous encaustic paintings also utilize heat to create striking abstractions. The two artists are also “fused” in that, as good friends and faculty members at Portland State University, each has enthusiastically followed and challenged the work of the other. Learn more!
