Portfolio Art Gallery, 512 Saluda Avenue: February 2019   2 comments

Posted at 11:05 pm in closing





I did not realize until I googled Portfolio that these pictures are of the back side of the gallery: 2007 Devine Street. I'll have to get some pictures of the main entrance next time I am in the area.

I am always nervous to go into commercial art galleries because I know that although I like art a good bit, there is approximately a zero percent chance that I will buy another painting I have no place to hang. I am particularly afraid of being the only potential customer in the store and having to dissapoint the owner. Of course there are a lot of topics like this that I'm neurotic about. So anyway, I never went into Portfolio but The State story on the closing makes it sound quite an interesting place which had been there since 1980. The owner is going on to a well deserved retirement.

UPDATE 6 April 2020 -- Here's one more picture, from 1 February 2015:

  1. Portfolio was awesome! It was less like a traditional gallery and more like a really cool gift shop. Pottery, beaded key chains, jewelry, solar wind chimes, etc. and yes, original paintings. It was one of my favorite places for gifts and for home decor for myself. It will def be missed.

  2. This place featured a lot of the excellent art by my sister, Ann Anrrich.
