Nikki McClure, known for her intricate paper-cut art, will be displaying the original works featured in her 2014 Calendar, "Home," tonight at Land Gallery in Portland.
"Home" juxtaposes McClure's strong signature style with the delicacy of pastoral life, creating a somewhat eerie and nostalgic sensation. The artist creates her works using only a single sheet of black paper and an x-acto knife, making the pieces that much more awe-inspiring to witness in person. Read More

The Oregon Zoo just posted an adorable video of their two-month-old river otter Molalla learning to swim. Otter keeper Becca VanBeek explains that otters are practically immobile when they're babies, so Mo's mom Tilly has been easing him into the water. Baby Mo was as big as "a handful of jellybeans" (!!!) when he was born, but he's now a 2000-gram pup with "quite the personality."
To honor the first river otter born at Oregon Zoo, Metro is donating money from every visit to help restore the local wetlands where otters live. Read More

Portland's own Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside made their way to the BUST offices in NYC to soothe our aching earbuds with a stripped-down version of their rockabilly love song, "Shivers." Only two of the usual quartet made it out for this intimate performance, with Ford on acoustic guitar and lead guitarist Jeff Munger on electric guitar. Munger's classic country riffs and solo matched Sallie's soulful energy with ease. As one of the few audience members, I've got to admit that Ford's pure, raw voice gave me shivers. Read More
