In June of this year Portland artist Pablo CÃ¡ceres, also known by his nickname Pablito, was featured on the cover of PQ Monthly and in an accompanying Ice Cream Bears art show at Scandals. With the wide circulation of PQM it was nearly impossible for anyone in Portland to avoid Pablito Keeping it Cute! People’s reactions to the cover artwork alone were humorous and filled Q Center’s office with a constant supply of jolly-good laughter. I recently learned Pablito’s work received the designation of achieving the maximum bid price in a yearly silent art auction for the Cascade Aids Project in April. It was a great honor to learn that Pablito was so enthusiastic about working with Q Center and the Aaron Hall Gallery. I recently had a chance to catch up with him online and check out his closing art reception for the Big Bearded Art Show at Tonic Lounge.
