About Us

We opened Splendorporium Gallery in 2009 to give back to the community by hosting monthly art exhibits and other events.

After seeing the wonderful work our students in Art4Life  had been making for several years, we felt they deserved a space to showcase their creations. Our Children’s Gallery, located at the back of our Main Gallery, remains Portland’s only exhibition space exclusively for youth.

The gallery provides local artists with a platform to share their vision. Our openings are held on the first Friday of each month in association with First Friday PDX, Portland’s original art walk. Please see our Calendar for a complete list of current show themes and opening dates as well as deadlines for artists to submit work.

We encourage local artists from all walks of life and working in all styles and media to submit recent work to our shows. We are an inclusive gallery intent on creating a space for unique self expression and community engagement.

We are here to illuminate, inspire and encourage creativity, magic and wonder. A true hidden gem of Portland, this gallery is a place unlike any other.

Over the years Splendorporium has been home to some very special events. Before the pandemic, we were honored to host The Tibetan Monks of Gaden Shartse. During this biannual tradition, the monks would teach art to Art4Life students. We hope to have them back in the future. We also regularly host Pacific Pug Rescue’s Pug Yoga.

The space is now also home to Betwixt and Between, our in-house metaphysical shop carrying crystals and stones, Tarot cards, jewelry, assorted altar supplies and unique home furnishings. To browse our selection and shop remotely visit the Betwixt and Between online store.

We are open Monday through Friday, 11 am to 5pm, except for legal holidays as we follow PPS’s schedule. We are also closed to the public the week leading up to First Fridays on which we have an opening, as that is the time in which we hang a show.
