Julia Sherman at Newspace
Newspace Center for Photography presents "New Photography",
it’s 1st Annual National Juried Exhibition featuring 39 photographers
from 16 states. Curated by Terry Toedtemeier, Mariana Tres and Chris Bennett,
the exhibition includes color, black & white, digital, traditional silver
and alternative processes. According to Toedtemeier, “The diversity of
images in the 'New Photography' exhibit form a broad survey of the kinds of
work being produces by emerging photographers today. The vitality of the show
accrues to the richness of styles, humor, and varied traditional and digital
media.” For a complete list of participants, see the Newspace website (click below).

After Andy Coolquitt's over-stimulating, down-home, folk-inspired love-fest
last month, Savage returns to more traditional gallery programming with Jacqueline Ehlis'
"Vigor". Bolder and more confrontational than her earlier work, Ehlis' new paintings assert themselves as sculptural forms in the gallery space.
Using a neon palette and abstract gestures, Ehlis' work is both visually seductive
and formally challenging. Everybody's been chatting about this show for weeks

THRILL OF IT ALL
My pick of the night is tucked away on Produce Row at the Hall Gallery. "Thrill
of it all" feaures sound + video + installation + performance. For those
who don't know, Hall has been an artist run space for at least half a decade,
showing the artists who house their studios there as well as their friends and
collaborators. Literally and figuratively an "underground gallery",
I've seen some of my favorite works there. This Friday, they're at it again with a
few of Portland's best kept secrets Ryan Boyle and Zach Reno as well as SF-based
photographer Tim Sullivan. Also showing are Jeff Kriksciun, Claudia Mendoza,
Candice Lin, and Maggie Foster.
Opening 6 to 11p
The Hall Gallery • 630 SE Third Avenue
