Sponsoring Better Art Writing

Regular PORT reader may recognize a few new sponsors to the right, Quality Pictures, Pushdot Studios, The Bullseye Gallery and Organism. In fact, let's take a break to thank all of our sponsors, you make all this possible. Our, monthly readership has nearly doubled since June (our 1 year anniversary) and it is really gratifying that so many readers from around the world have found us useful. When Jennifer, Katherine and I (along with Phillipe Blanc's software customizations) were originally trying to get one another to do this alone we had no idea where it would lead… all we wanted was better art writing and better art scene information blogged with an international perspective. This art macroblog was an experiment and a kind of labor of love public service. With so much art press in Portland being rather persona and tabloid-ish rather than content/context driven Im really proud of all of our writers, you really make PORT a unique online community.

We even have a cub reporter (Amy Steel) at Art Basel Miami Beach this year. I had some other commitments this year but this is what I blogged last year.

Our New Sponsors:

Quality Pictures is a new gallery in town (opening on Thursday) with a lot of exciting work by one of my favorite artists, Sue de Beer. Also exciting, artists like Murakami, Oliver Boberg and Inka Essenhigh will be showing alongside locals like Holly Andres and Mark Hooper.

Pushdot Studios has had some excellent photography shows along with providing excellent digital printing services. Sure it's a business, but it must be gratifying to work with so many photographers

The Bullseye Gallery has been an important art scene stalwart way before my time, and Ive always loved any show with Mark Zirpel. Wandering their upstairs gallery with its dramatically darkened spaces is one of my favorite experiences in the city.

Oh yes and Organism, my new art non-profit focused on up and coming international artists is on the roll call too. You can read about our innaugural show which opens Wednesday in the Trib (one thing, that obscure British show isn't so obscure over there, it has spawned 3-4 Turner Prize short listers and winners). The show is looking great with a lot of surprises. Its stark, hard hitting and ocassionally funny. Jarrett even interviewed a Portlander who managed to hit a deer with a plane.
