Jennifer Gately's first post-Biennial endeavor as the Portland Art Museum's Curator of Northwest Art, the APEX series, was initiated earlier this month with the opening of an exhibition of work by Roy McMakin. Focusing on small shows highlighting the work of Northwest artists, the series will allow the Museum to have the kind of responsiveness to contemporary art of this region that the community has been demanding for quite some time now. This Sunday marks the first in a series of lectures associated with APEX, bringing in this Seattle-based artist for a discussion of his work, which plays between object and concept through work in both traditional media, furniture design and architecture.
