After three exciting and challenging years, Hap Gallery has closed its doors. We have been buoyed by encouragement from fans and supporters, and impressed by the artists and curators we have worked with who have been, without exception, generous partners in this endeavor.
Hap opened November, 2013 to show contemporary artists, explore curatorial issues, and experiment with gallery practices. In the fall of 2016 Hap launched HapWorks, an online site featuring limited edition works by participating artists as part of the gallery’s ongoing effort to make contemporary art available to a wider audience.
Hap’s space will continue as a vital part of Portland’s cultural scene. We are pleased to announce that this Spring John Knight and Iris Williamson will launch a new venture at 916 NW Flanders. Knight is an artist and co-director of Cherry and Lucic in Portland, OR. Williamson is former Associate Director at Hap Gallery. Details will be available later this year.
