Art Talk and More

As we swing into the weekend, there's plenty of great art chatter including lectures, talks, a reading and even an auction...

Thursday, June 16th

blumenfeld.jpg Blumenfeld at PICA

Erika Blumenfeld Lecture @ PICA
Blumenfeld's piece in the Landmark show is one of the most captivating and enchanting. In a dark side room, her white light projections shift slowly, catching the shadows and silhouettes of her onlookers. During the fall of 2004, Blumenfeld worked in an astronomer's house at the the McDonald Observatory's main peak where she created the video work Moving Light: Lunation 1011, now on display. Thursday night she talks about this project and her unique and delicate process of capturing light on film by by hand.
PICA Annex • NW 13th & Flanders • 7pm • free to PICA Members / $2 general

Pinball Publishing Book Release with Vladmaster performance

922 SE Ankeny Portland
Local champions of the small press, Pinball Publishing, release their second poetry title, "Suspension of a Secret in Abandoned Rooms" by Joshua Marie Wilkinson. This book-length poem emerges from the author's exploration of Egon Schiele's work, region and era. Also joining in the festivities is local indie-film rock-star Vladimir, presenting one of her classic Viewmaster performances. If you haven't seen one of these before, you are truly missing out.
at NAAU • 922 SE Ankeny • 7:30p to 9:30p • free

Friday, June 17th

Andi Kovel & Justin Parker Reception at Contemporary Crafts
You may be most familiar with the work of these talented two as Esque functional glass objects and home accessories, gracing the tables of Clarklewis and GBT. At CCG they bridge art, craft and design, each presenting site-specific installations revealing their technical skill and conceptual wit. Sure to be playful and voluptuous. Also on view, works by ceramist Ted Vogel. See Saturday for accompanying lecture.
Contemporary Crafts Museum & Gallery • 3934 SW Corbett Avenue • 5:30 to 8p

Saturday, June 18th

Panel Discussion: Making a Living Through Making Art: Bridging Craft & Design
Hello young artists (and older). This one's for you! In this day and age there's nothing more formidable than a business-savvy artist. Listen up as Andi Kovel, Hilary Pfeifer and Tom Ghilarducci discuss working as a professional artist in a variety of arenas: museum exhibitions, fine craft shows, design shows, galleries and interior design. They will discuss the merging of studio practice with aesthetics and business and the challenges of making your living through art. I just might have to sneak in a tape recorder for this.
Contemporary Crafts Museum & Gallery • 3934 SW Corbett Avenue • 1p

Art on the Block @ Disjecta

Andrew Dickson wanders back from sunny L.A. to grace us with his auctioneering expertise and City Commissioner Sam Adams joins in for Disjecta's action packed fund-raiser. I'm certain there will be a lively crowd and perhaps some festive shenanigans as Disjecta makes a run for phase two of their development. Who knows, you could walk out with a steal of a deal from Brad Adkins, Damali Ayo, Chandra Bocci, Troy Briggs, Bruce Conkle, Harrell Fletcher, Kim Hamblin, Sean Healy, Chris Johanson, Jesse Durost, Ericka Kohr, Marne Lucas, Melody Owen, Bonnie Paisley, Joe Thurston, Terry Toedtemeier... Need I continue?
Music provided by Clampitt, Gaddis & Buck
Disjecta • 230 E Burnside • 7 to 10p • $?

One Min Film Festival + Themed Art Show @ Holocene
And the theme is... "pockets"! Over forty short-shorts, art on the walls and then a DJ. Participants are a mystery but with 40 to choose from, there's sure to be some gems. Then you can dance your little heart out.
Holocene • 1001 SE Morrison • doors at 8p, show at 9 • $3 to $10 (sliding)

Also opening Saturday is the John Singer Sargent exhibit at PAM.
