The Jupiter Hotel has been an incubator for small businesses and a supporter of the arts. Their First Friday Artisan Series is an opportunity for both local and visiting guests to experience and expand the concept of art into an exploration of all of the senses: visual, taste, touch, smell and sound. The First Friday event is an opportunity to treat attendees to a variety of sensory stimulation and support the local artisans that make Portland a unique and wonderful place to live. Complimentary beverages and light appetizers will be available for guests. For more information on Paul Rutz and the Gallery @ the Jupiter, please visit galleryatthejupiter.com.
