Nucleus Portland


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

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 both originals and prints. 

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! 

Be sure to visit our events page or join our mailing list for future shows and gatherings.
