Call for Writers

Hello loyal PORT readers! We are pleased to announce that we are growing and increasing our numbers and thus we are on the hunt for some new additions to our staff. With three writers covering reviews we are looking to bring on Announcements and News writers to fill in the blanks.

The Announcements writer posts about local happenings including openings, performances, special events, artist talks, impromptu stagings, etc. This job is ideal for someone with their finger on the pulse (or who wants to have their finger on the pulse). First Thursdays/Fridays are already taken care of so the Announcements writer would be listing the other events throughout the month. Not a lot of journalistic finesse needed here, just the ability to organize press releases, calendars, keep on top of happenings, and post regularly.

The News writer will post 2-3 short clips per week, drawing attention to Portland art news as well as national and international news; making connections between what is happening here and elsewhere. This job relies heavily on an obsession with contemporary art and art politics so if you are a blog-head or spend too much time reading about art online, you could be our peep!

For both positions, we are looking for someone with broad understanding of the visual arts; a strong writer who is energetic, opinionated, self motivated, curious about contemporary art and on the internet a lot. If interested, please email a letter of interest to Jeff Jahn (jeff@portlandart.net) or Jennifer Armbrust (jenn@portlandart.net). Please include any relevant experience (or bribes). PORT is largely a labor of love however, all staff are paid a modest stipend. Plus, you can gain Press access to fabulous art events in Portland and around the globe!

I would love to offer my time for either of these positions, but unfortunately, any extra time I have is usually spent painting my heart out (or commenting on here occasionally). I hope all goes well in the hunt.

This is interesting to me. I am not an expert, but I look at art aroung Portland a lot, visit many of the galleries regularly. My particular interest is photography. I always check out Newspace and Blue Sky, every month. Also any other shows that have been mentioned in other PORT entries.
This weekend I went to Seattle to see the "Double Take" (why, oh why that name???) show of Paul Allen's very expensive collection at Experience Music Project, which was ok, but I was most moved and inspired by the Candida Hofer show at the Frye Museum.
These Dusseldorf artists, students of the Bechers, keep impressing. In particular were these images by Hofer, of glowing empty rooms, full of chairs and other evidence of human gathering and sharing, the light so white and inviting, the chairs sitting patiently, the space, the space.

Another thing: I'm very excited about the coming show at the Cooley. It will be great to be able to see more Greg Crewdson pictures. And he will be talking at Reed on April 25 and 26.
