Nucleus Portland


Bringing the art community together is the reason Nucleus exists. Words cannot express our gratitude for our artists, collectors, and everyone who has shown us support and generosity, especially during these uncertain times.

Nucleus Portland is moving to a new location!

Southeast Portland has been our beloved home for five years, however due to the pandemic and other factors, we have decided to reopen in the Alberta Arts District beginning on February 27th. 

*There will be exhibits open simultaneously in both SE & NE Portland gallery locations through this February to May.

We are unsure when drink & draws and workshops will safely return, however we remain hopeful that this will not be the last time we draw at the same table. In the meantime, we are excited to continue hosting monthly exhibitions with local and international artists. Stay up to date by subscribing to our newsletter and view the show calendar HERE.

Thank you,
Charles, Stella, and the Nucleus Team



Currently, both Portland locations are open on weekends. Please see our Instagram for updated hours.  

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, you may be asked to wait outside.
