Nucleus Portland


Nucleus Portland welcomes you to gather in creativity and insight. The gallery is locally run by us, Charlie and Stella, a husband and wife team. We are artists that aspire to connect the art community through exhibitions, special events, and drink & draws.

Since 2004, our sister location, Gallery Nucleus has exhibited contemporary, illustrated, graphic, commercial, and narrative art. Having exhibited both local and international artists, we offer originals, prints, and exclusive artist products.

Whether you share the same passion for art, or you’re visiting our gallery for the first time, we invite you to view our current exhibition, enjoy beer at the bar, and draw! Thanks for visiting.

Join our mailing list to be the informed of future shows/events, and special promotions. 

Currently, we are open on Saturdays & Sundays from 12pm-4pm.

Attendees must keep their face covering on and keep a respectful distance from other parties. Only a few people will be allowed inside at a time, so you may be asked to wait outside.
