1216 se division portland, or 97202 • 503.432.3513
Opening Reception June 2, 12 - 9pm.
Grey|Area is a strong group show, in fact its stronger than any group show Ive seen in a portland gallery in 2006. TJ has curatorial chops that most of these other long listed group shows dont even attempt to develop and Im frankly a little sick of group shows that take the motto, "If it cant be good, lets make it large and inclusive."
This is a show worth seeing, not just because you know someone in it.
