Portland, OR, October 12, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- When traveling through Astoria Oregon, art enthusiasts will be drawn to the Three Cups Coffee House. They have been in business since 1992 striving to bring the Northwest the best hand roasted Coffee. After 5 years in business they decided to expand their operation from just manufacturing coffee to something more. They decided to open a retail shop and add art to their cups of coffee. They became known as “The Coffee that floats the Arts.” Their twist of using creamer to paint/float a design or a face on your coffee has become famous in the Northwest.
Three Cups continues to decorate their coffee with floating art, as well as invites artists to shares their art work and add to the artistic atmosphere of the coffee house. Each month Three Cups selects a new artist for an exclusive art exhibit, the next artist to be featured in November’s art exhibit will be Oskkar Walker. Oskkar is a contributing artist to the studios of Benham Design Concepts, a Portland Oregon art studio featuring paintings, photography and custom handcrafted furniture.
This small art studio comprised of four artists is excited for the opportunity to get their name out in the art community and hopes it will open doors for more exhibits. Owner of Benham Design Concepts, Brian Benham say “this is a great opportunity for our art studio. In this down economy not as many people are buying art right now, it brings a whole new level to the phrase “the starving artist.” We are pushing to get the word out in hopes that this art exhibit will get Oskkar more recognition in the art community and ultimately more visitors to our website to purchase the art we are inspired to create.”
Oskkar finds inspiration for his paintings in everything he sees, which results in a large variety of styles in his works. Some of the featured paintings in the art exhibit where inspired by Oskkars admiration of Japanese art, the Oregon Coast itself, and a little frog taking care of business.
If you are in need for some great art on the walls and floating art in your cup, stop by Three Cups Coffee House this November and get your fill. You can also view Oskkar’s complete collection of works at http://www.benhamdesignconcepts.com/OskkarWalker.
