Rowan Kingsbury is a Portland, OR based illustrator, maker, and storyteller creating work full of wonder, warmth, and whimsy. Whether she’s breaking out the paints or working digitally, she loves to make playful art of cute animals, lovely plants, fantastical stories, and everyday people that fill the viewer with warmth and elevate mundane moments into the memorable and magical. Rowan enjoys working on and has completed projects in children’s and young adult publishing, galleries, and product and merch design. She particularly enjoys working on projects with cute, nature focused, or fantastical themes, and as a queer illustrator, loves opportunities to feature inclusive stories. When she isn’t creating, she’s probably cooking up something new in the kitchen, reading her hoard of books, or trying to find the nearest cat to bother.

Taking Up Space Exhibit

June 2nd-30th

Taking Up Space or T.U.S. is a Grassroots Community Global Art Exhibition for Artists of Genders Underrepresented in the Art World. This is a Thrive Together Network initiative in which:

"We believe the work we create as women artists is important and deserves to be seen by our communities. We also believe we don't need to wait for permission, approval, invitations or gatekeepers to let our art be seen by the world. Taking Up Space or T.U.S. is a Grassroots Female Focused Community Global Art Exhibition. We ask the artists in our communities to take up space and exhibit their work in (or close to) the month of May each year."


The Taking Up Space Exhibit features the solo work of artist Madeleine Camille Meyer. Madeleine is drawn to the contrast of soft fibers connected to ceramic and utilizing them to tell these stories. Many have experienced both the sharp, firm moments of life as well as the soft warm ones, and the work Madeleine does presents the culmination of those moments, reminding viewers that moments are not the sum, rather a small fraction coming together to make something greater. Her work prompts us to settle into the stories of ourselves and our communities, to actively partake in those communities but also rest in them.
