Ash Street Project

Ash Street Project, the vision of artists Thomas Orr and Joanna Bloom, encompasses art studios, visiting artists, gallery space, community programs and a clay-based emerging artist mentorship program.  Our site also hosts an on-line gallery shop.

About Us

The Ash Street Project, a 5000 square foot space in Portland’s Central Eastside District, houses a commercial gallery, an event space, and the studios of Thomas Orr and Joanna Bloom.  Moreover, it is home to the Emerging Artist Mentorship Program (ASP:EAMP), a program designed to support clay-based artists in their pursuits.  Our commercial gallery provides a venue for artists to share experimental work with the community. Through exhibits, workshops and lectures, visiting artists, and gatherings around food and drink, the Ash Street Project is part of the ebb and flow of community dialog.
