‘The Infinite Well 2’ – WOW x WOW & Nucleus Portland – Announcement

posted in: Announcement 0

WOW x WOW and Nucleus Portland are so very honoured to bring you ‘The Infinite Well 2’. This group show was curated by WOW x WOW founder, Tim Maclean, after receiving the most generous invitation to join forces with the fabulous Nucleus of Portland, Oregon (sister gallery to the celebrated Gallery Nucleus in LA) for the second time, following the success of their first collaboration last year.

All hung, ready for the opening night.

The Infinite Well 2 opened on 6th September and runs until 2nd October. It brings together the work of 26 American artists, all of whom share fantastic technical skill, a love of narrative and the ability to immerse viewers within wonderful visions, be they outlandish and surreal or comfortingly familiar.

Awesome art AND nibbles… don’t say we aren’t good to you.

Anyone living in or visiting Portland, has the pleasure of viewing (and purchasing) the art in person. However, this does not mean that the rest of the world has to miss out, as the show can be experienced via the gallery’s stylish and intuitively designed website, which also allows purchases to be made directly.

Getting up close and personal…

As if having all this fabulous art on the walls isn’t enough of an incentive to visit Nucleus Portland, they are also hosting special events throughout the month The Infinite Well 2 is on show (actually something that the gallery does every month, during every show they host). Included in these special events are their very popular Drink & Draw gatherings, which encourage everyone involved to get creative with their preferred drawing implements, while enjoying the gallery’s range of fantastic craft beers.

Tim would also like to thank all the participating artists for their amazing contributions and for helping to make The Infinite Well 2 such a huge success!
