PDX CONTEMPORARY ART is pleased to present, In This Garden, an exhibition of new paintings by Storm Tharp.
Grown from the desire to create monumental, improvisational works, these new paintings employ a calligraphic speed and deft mark-making to create large-scale abstractions of the garden. The quick and confident execution of these works come from years of experienced practice, but the result is the appearance of something effortless and light—a feeling akin to flying or dancing.
Fuller Rosen Gallery is pleased to announce Held Tight, a two-person exhibition of new and recent work by Molly Alloy and Arielle Zamora on view June 04 - August 07, 2022. Held Tight will present ten paintings on panel by Arielle Zamora and a series of assemblages, sculptures, and installations by Molly Alloy. Join us for an in-person opening reception on Saturday, June 04 from 6-8 pm.
Unattended by Russell Borne is abstractly about the passing of time. Time presses along in abstraction yet has a tangible effect of both decay and growth in our daily lives. While some moments seem to have an overabundance of time, other more precious moments seem to vanish before our eyes. The works in Unattended explore the different elemental experiences of time. Experiences of destructive, redemptive, and some places in-between.
Takahashi started making performances every day in 2014 to visualize her response to social, cultural, and political questions in her new home country. After her multiple solo public performances, she named this project "Seeing You/Seeing Me", which stems from her feelings on visibility/invisibility in US society. In 2021-2022, Takahashi is expanding this project into a community participatory project happening in multiple US locations with the hope to share the feeling with others.
In this exhibition, Takahashi shares documentation from this expanded version of “Seeing You/Seeing Me” from her first-time visit to GA in 2020, and her recent visit to MA in 2021. Takahashi also presents a sound installation with Adrian McBride in the courtyard during the opening.
