Studio space available December 15

The Dooryard is looking for a new studio artist collective member beginning December 15th. Space is opening up in our large downstairs room; about 12x6ft curtained-off area. Under $100/mo for a downtown location with great sunlight & sweet folks.

We are more than just a room to work in; we are a community of artists, musicians, magicians, alchemists, performers, and space/time astronauts. Come visit at 108 High St. to check out what we're doing!

Goodbye to Katahdin

The Dooryard bids farewell to our downstairs neighbor, Katahdin Restaurant. The wood fire grill & bar is moving to a new location in downtown Portland and will be reopening on the first of the year.

Their 3,000sq-ft former space will be available for tours by prospective renters or buyers come next week. Anyone interested in starting a radical cafe, gallery, or book shop with a friendly upstairs is highly encouraged to take a look!



The DoorYard opened it's doors to First Friday Artswalk this month. Visitors were greeted by a Wizard, a vacation photograph slide show in the bathroom, a make your own Dead Man's Clothes CD cover tent was set up for playful fun, the downstairs space showcased 2-d works, a nest installation by Tessa McGow, an installation in the back with video projection by Will Lutz and Irina Skornyakova, the upstairs was open to showcase Nick Rountree's printmaking studio and an installation by Ahna the Ladybeast.
