Who

What

Bring your grief and vulnerability for a multi-sensory experience with the art of Alli Bratt at the Portland Grief House. 

This installation will be nestled in the upstairs rooms of our house. There will be an area for letting go in the large alcove room, set up with an altar, meditation cusions and other soft places to land. We invite you to bring something to release — whether it’s guilt, a breath, stress, anger, etc - in company with Alli's beautiful visions of transofrmation. This will be an oportunity to contemplate what might be holding us back in our grief, and allow it to move as it wishes.

When that part of the cycle feels satisfied, another room awaits to help repair. What might you invite back in to ground or comfort you? We'll have space set up in the rainbow room - amid Alli's handmade droplets, alongside the glass teardrop art of Yvette Kinyon - where you can lie alone or with another person to restore, reset, be held, be with. A place to bring something back. What might you invite in? Comfort? Grace? Tenderness? Love? Protection? Care?

You are welcome to join Alli and Yvette for tea and conversation downstairs before and after your experience. 

Laura Green and Hannah Hillebrand from the Grief House will also be available for tea and talking. 

We hope to see you there.

About Alli:

Alli Bratt is a mixed media artist, whose mediums include painting, drawing, and collage and incorporate reclaimed materials. 

Originally from the Bay Area, Alli received her BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia in 2007. She has lived and made art in Portland, Oregon since 2009. 

Inspiration for Alli's work stems from the natural world, which has supported her through her own grief and depression. She has found new meaning in her art and life through sobriety. 

As her love and appreciation of the environment deepens, her practice has shifted to implement reclaimed, found, and discarded items that minimize the environmental impact of her work.
