Basic Space Gallery
327 NW 9th Avenue
Basic Space Gallery is owned and operated by local artists, Christopher and Kenneth Saylor-Roberts. Their mission is to share their vision of a fine arts gallery in Portland’s Pearl District, always showcasing artists works that tell a deep emotive story. The two owners are Represented Artists alongside some of the Pacific Northwest’s best! The gallery will also spotlight an emerging artist in Portland and mentor them in their art career. There is something for everyone, no matter if you are an art connoisseur or you have never been in a gallery before. “We are featuring works of all media including oil, acrylics, ink, encaustic, wire, clay, found objects and much more. The works from all of the artist are worlds apart in aesthetic design, however, they all are threaded with the same common visceral response that lives inside the artist. You will see brightly animated paintings from co-owner Christopher Roberts, scribbled figurative drawings from the other co-owner Kenneth Saylor, brilliantly fluid abstract scapes by Erin Cadena, heavily textured architectural pieces by Karen Cruickshank, delicate wire sculptures by Alison Eriksen, deeply spiritual clay and found object sculptures by Jo Grishman, intricate powerful sculpture assemblages from Dan Pillers, jewel-toned canvases by Edyta Salak, large rich carved encaustics from Kelly Williams, and art deco inspired jewelry by Laura Black!”
