About The Gallery Store
The Gallery Store at the Museum of Contemporary Craft (MoCC) features beautifully handcrafted objects with a modern design focus. From one-of-a-kind legacy pieces by nationally known craft artists, many of whom are in the Museum’s collection, to fresh work by up and coming Northwest designers and artists, the work is selected to reflect the Museum’s mission and longstanding commitment to incorporating the beauty of craft and design into the rhythms of everyday life.
Established in 1937, the Museum of Contemporary Craft renovated the Gallery Store in 2012. Today the Gallery Store features work by hundreds of artists and craftspeople and supports the mission of MoCC, a national treasure as the country’s oldest museum dedicated to contemporary craft.
Bridging Downtown, Old Town and The Pearl, the Gallery Store is midway between Powell’s Books and the Lan Su Chinese Garden in the gallery-rich DeSoto building just off from NW Broadway.

Storefront Residency Project features Artists-in-Residence Liza Rietz + Emily Bixler of BOET, October 2 – 11, 2014
The Storefront Residency Project bridges Gallery Store and Museum to create a visible platform for demonstrations and discussions relating to the materials, processes, and products of contemporary craft and design. In conjunction with Design Week Portland this October, The Gallery Store at Museum of Contemporary Craft features the debut collaboration of clothing designer Liza Rietz and jewelry designer Emily Bixler of BOET. This collection explores the interplay of garment as sculpture, focusing on architectonic and textural elements and how a garment takes shape once on the physical body.
