First Thursday Picks {from West to East}

Portland's galleries are overflowing this month with fresh young talent. Thursday evening you might as well make a night of it...

ON 21ST
Don't miss the recent works of one of Portland's most promising young gems, Timothy Scott Dalbow at Laura Russo (in conjunction with the Carl and Hilda Morris Foundation Young Artist Exhibition). Dalbow's abstract landscapes capture Portland's architecture with a varied palette and a skilled and easy stoke. Also showing are Josh Arseneau (Paintings), Anna Daedalus (Photography), Anne Glynnis Fawkes (Paintings) and Eric Franklin (Glass Sculpture).
Through July 2, 2005 • Opening June 2, 5 to 8pm
Laura Russo Gallery • 805 NW 21st Ave. • Tel. 503.226.2754

IN THE PEARL
Over 50 recent grads present their accomplishments and celebrate their new-found freedom at the reception for PNCA's Focus 2005 BFA exhibition. My picks are Alex Felton's stop animation drawings, Scott Porter's overly precise minimalist installation, Shawna Ferreira's restrained intaglios, Sarah Nordbye's custom commercial interiors and Patrick Meloy's towering neckties.
Through June 18 • Opening June 2, 6 to 9pm
PNCA • Steven's Studios • Corner of NW Johnson & NW 15th • Tel. 503.226.4391

Reminicient of Rorschachs, tattoos, spiderwebs and heavy metal, Ken Kelly presents "Babble" a new collection paintings on canvas at Pulliam Deffenbaugh. Impressive large patterned abstractions.
Through July 2 • Preview June 1, 5:30 to 7:30pm • Opening June 2, 5:30 to 8:30pm
Pulliam Deffenbaugh • 522 NW 12th Ave • Tel. 503.228.6665

CHINATOWN
Over in the Everett Station Lofts, Martin Ontiveros presents "Mestizo" a semi-autobiographical exhibition exploring the boundaries and borders of culture through a series of superheroes. See his bold, precise, graphic-inspired paintings at Genuine Imitation.
Through July 1• Opening June 2, 6 to 9pm
Genuine Imitation Gallery • 328 NW Broadway #116 • Tel. 503.241.3189

Motel is packed with the luminous large-scale works of local up-and-comer Jesse Durost. Inspired by the color palettes of Baroque painters, Durost works with coffee, India ink and gold paint pen to craft transcendental drawings bursting with fluidity and rhythm.
Through July 2• Preview June 1, 6 to 8pm • Opening June 2, 6:30 to 9:30pm
Motel • NW Couch St between 5th & 6th Aves • Tel. 503.222.6699

DOWNTOWN
Gallery 500 presents "Habitat", the culmination of a week-long on-site endeavor where six artists build their own shelters and inhabit them alongside one another. After Thursday night, the completed art habitats will transition from lived-in community to preserved ghost town, as only one artist remains in the space until June 1. Katrina Scotto di Carlo, Nana Hayashi, Marc Snegg, Jeff Stratford, Liz Harris, and Gabrielle Woladarski.
Through July 1 • Preview June 1, 6 to 8pm • Opening June 2, 6pm to midnight
Gallery 500 • 420 SW Washington, Suite 500 • Tel. 503.223.3951

ON THE EASTSIDE
You thought Disjecta was dead or maybe just sleeping? Not so. They've been hard at work securing a new home and a gradiose vision for contemporary art in Portland. Preview The Donut Shop 9 and Portland Modern's latest gallery installment as Disjecta energizes the Templeton Building with 8,000 (!) square feet of unfettered exhibition space.

Since 2000 The Donut Shop has been a forum for imaginative art in purposefully non-traditional environments with a total of eight incarnations of the yeasty project. Donut Shop 9 features the work of Alex Hubbard (NYC via PDX), Frank Parga (NYC), Melissa Dyne (LA), Jon Harris (Australia), Molly Dilworth and Daniel Heffernan (NYC).

Portland Modern, Mark Brandau's gallery-in-print, presents its second exhibition from the sophomore issue in the same building. Diedrich Dasenbrock offers vibrantly colored nighttime photographs while Don Olsen exhibits humorous improvisational paintings on recycled panels.

Special Preview June 2, 6 to 9pm • Opening reception, June 4th, 6 to 10pm.
Disjecta • the Templeton Building • 230 E Burnside (Under the Burnside Bridge on SE 3rd)
