The Gordon House, located in Silverton, Oregon, is the only Frank Lloyd Wright designed house in Oregon and the only Wright building in the Pacific Northwest open to the public. It was built in 1964 for Evelyn and Conrad Gordon in Wilsonville, OR and was saved from demolition in 2001 when it was disassembled and moved to Silverton, Oregon.
Set in a serene environment next to the Oregon Garden, this Wright gem is a beautiful and unique home to look at inside and out. Guided tours of the house are available everyday except Tuesdays and start at noon, 1pm and 2pm. You can call 503.874.6006 to make a reservation for a tour.
This summer, the house will be hosting a new exhibition by artist Larry Kassell. The show and sale, Wright Angles…Home Is Where the Art Is, will be on display the entire month of August through Labor Day in the Gordon House. More then two dozen original contemporary realistic oil paintings will be displayed throughout the house.
You can view the show for $5 from 12 noon to 3 p.m. every day except Tuesday from August 3rd to September 1. The artist will discuss his work at a public reception on Saturday, August 9 starting at 5 p.m. Jazz by The Micah Kassell Trio will begin at 6 p.m. Kassell will make a special presentation at 7 p.m. Admission to the reception is free.
