Butters Gallery

157 NE Grand Avenue

Founded in 1988, Butters Gallery, Ltd. is established as an important contemporary art source for both private and corporate collectors nationwide. Our Oregon family owned and operated gallery focuses on artists from throughout the United States and abroad including several prominent regional artists. We look in all directions to find artists whose work is innovative with regard to content and media. Included are paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and sculpture consisting of a range of media from paint to glass to ceramic to metal.

For over 25 years, we have monthly presented one person and group exhibitions of work by nationally known artists who have garnered the attention of writers, critics, curators and collectors across the US. Our gallery exhibitions have been reviewed in such publications as The New York Times, Art in America, Art News, Sculpture Magazine, Glass Magazine, and American Craft. We have come to be recognized by a large portion of the art viewing public of Portland as one of the most substantial and successful galleries that they may visit. And, during the many years we've been operating, we have successfully encouraged the broadening and blossoming of the Portland art scene. We are dedicated to serving our clients as well as our artists. The relationships that we cultivate with both our clients and artists have been and continue to be long and rewarding. You will find us to be one of the most service oriented fine art establishments existing today. We encourage you to take the time to become acquainted with us and appreciate the art we enjoy so much.

One of my favorite galleries to visit on First Thursday. They tend to have many attractive, approachable pieces that I would actually consider hanging in my home, as opposed to many galleries that "are nice to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there" if you know what I mean. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable without being stuffy or pushy, a welcome change to most of the large galleries in PDX.
