The event is an ongoing celebration of the limits which art can be taken when infused with the possibilities that technology brings to the creative table.
AFRU gallery, in the heart of Portland’s Southeast industrial area, has been growing steadily in exposure since its inception in September of 2012. Its relaxed atmosphere, quality artist displays and extraordinary music performances on first Fridays have given it a healthy reputation in the artist community and a tip of the hat from internationally established artists and galleries alike.
Sean Hathaway is a core member of the AFRU community, an avid technological tinkerer and occasional producer of some rather overly complex technological art. Aside from working with the AFRU Gallery group Sean is also a husband, the father of an awesome robot loving toddler and a full time software developer.
