Ghost Net Landscape: Across Oceans
April 5-May 15
ReClaim It, a place where the creative citizens of Portland can find unique materials to reuse, repair, and reimagine.
“Across Oceans” is the fourth major installation of Ghost Net Landscape. Presented in conjunction with a theatrical performance, in the lobby outside the theatre, “Across Oceans” is my most personal exhibition of Ghost Net Landscape yet. The installation is presented geographically, with raw materials and written fragments of my family’s history organized across oceans: linking China, Hawaii, and Oregon in the Pacific, with Maine, England, and Ireland in the Atlantic. Visitors are invited to share their own histories, memories, and connections to the ocean in writing displayed in the exhibition.
“The Children” Community Conversation: May 8.
Performance at 2pm, conversation at 3:30pm.
Support Our Community Programs
In just over 4 years, Portland TextileX Month (PTXM) has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration, cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and intergenerational exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
This year we’ve organized the PTXM festival with over 40 events and directly sponsored a multitude of FREE programs including exhibits, workshops, artist talks, community events, and more—representing a diverse range of textile interests and practices. This year’s PTXM Regeneration Festival has brought together makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing. PTXM would not have been possible without the dedication of event organizers, paid contributors, paid interns, amazing volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community.
We hope to continue building PTXM and TextileX website as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come, and that’s where you come in.
If you feel a connection to the PTXM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider making a direct contribution programming. As a direct contributor, your funds will go directly toward programming, lean administrative expenses, and providing paid internships. We appreciate any contribution you can make and your continued support.
