One of the artists invited to the show is Portland-based Erin Gallagher. Gallagher moved to Portland from Alaska about two years ago and has been duly inspired by our bike-loving ways. From her blog:

“It has been only two years since the move and yet in that short period an immense love of cycling seems to have captured Erin’s heart. This city’s collective enthusiasm for all things bike-y has spurred Erin to recreate it in her paintings.”

See more of Gallagher’s work on her blog.

Bike Love runs through June 27th at Angst Gallery on 1015 Main Street in Vancouver.
