Hiberts!


New Work by The Hiberts! June 1st (First Friday), 6-9pm

Watch this!

The Hiberts are an awesome family.

Snaggs, her husband Arbito, his two cousins Oliver and Spencer, gallons of fresh paint and yards of fuzzy felt are coming to Portland, OR to remind us to jump start our imaginations.
Their work is a shining example of west coast psychedelic art. The vivid colors and icons used often resemble work created during the golden 1960s American revolution.
The Hibert family style rounds the edges and cranks the volume up on icons such as hippies, monsters, bell bottoms, totem poles, long hair, flowers and everything typically West Coast that can been shown in a cute and fuzzy light.
Although Arbito, Snaggs, Oliver and Spencer have earned established gallery reputations, they have never shown together in Portland. The simple fact that they are all flying to be here at their Grass Hut opening tells us something about their passion for Portland's art scene.
How passionate are you?

Snaggs



Snaggs is a local Seattle textile artist. You can usually find her dwelling in her basement, sewing up a storm; surrounded by heaps of vibrant, rainbow colored, fuzzy felt. When she’s not doing art work, she focuses the rest of her creative energy into outbidding people on ebay, posting paparazzi photos on flickr, and gaining endless inspiration from her artist husband, arbito.
