Before the opening of their new show, "Human Being" at Gallery 114 in the Pearl District, Portland artist David Slader and three guest artists invite you to join them for a benefit in support of the Oregon Justice Resource Center.

The show features new paintings of women by David Slader as well as works by three currently or formerly incarcerated artists from Oregon: B. Pat, Jerome Sloan and David Drenth.

Creating art in the restrictive environment of a prison means being resourceful. Cereal boxes, the brown paper used to wrap prison laundry, and ground-up M&Ms have all been used by prison artists in Oregon.

With 14,000 people in prison in our state, this is a group of people with plenty to say through art. The works of the four artists taking part in the show combine to demand recognition of the right to basic dignity of all human beings.
