Free nibbles, art + Rogue Ales beer during First Friday, August 5th, from 6 to 8 PM.

It's the middle of summer and this First Friday is HOT! Join us for this complimentary First Friday event featuring Rogue Brewing, Equal Exchange, and artwork from local artist, Paul Rutz. Paul X. Rutz received his Ph.D. in Theory and Cultural Studies from Purdue University in 2011 after writing a dissertation on combat art and the Iraq war. That year Rutz took his portrait painting practice to Portland, OR, where he develops life-size oil paintings working almost exclusively with live models. For every picture in the show, Paul has choreographed every body and prop in his studio, sketched them, repositioned them and started over.

“I make up rules for myself. For the paintings hanging here, I measured every body part and every plate or spoon at exactly life size, so to some extent all these pictures communicate what it’s like to be there sizing up the subject,” says Rutz. “That’s why I carved through panels in some of these pictures, setting real shadows against trompe l’oeil shadows. It’s a chance to indulge in some echo of the 3-D parallax we see when we walk past things.”

For those 21+, complimentary beverages will be poured by guest artisan, Rogue Ales. Equal Exchange will be serving up a delicious blend of organic and fairly traded rooibos and black tea, served chilled and on ice, of course! They will also be sampling a selection of our organic and fairly traded chocolate bars, many of which are vegan.
