Paperchase at Guestroom Gallery
Jenny Strayers curatorial debut, Paper Chase highlights the mediums of
collage and photomontage as used by eight west coast and one New York artist.
When faced with the challenge of making art from paper these nine artists
responded with work as diverse and as individual as this versatile medium will
allow (which means this is the latest in a long line of collage shows in Portland). Artists included: Michael Brieger
Shelley Chamberlin, James Gallagher.Heidi Kirkpatrick, Eva Lake, Shawn Long,
Eric Rue, Jenny Strayer and the awesome Philip
(who is one to watch).
Opening reception • 7-10pm • Feb. 2-March 31st

Nothing is Lost at Newspace
Nothing is Lost is collaborative photography installation by Mariana Tres, one
of our favorite former Portlanders (she got great university position in Bloomington
Indiana but is always coming back). Tres sent out disposable cameras to 33 people including an Israeli soldier,
a postal worker in Indiana, an astrophysicist in Seattle, an eight year-old
girl, a journalist in Argentina, a meditation leader in Philadelphia and other
random friends and strangers across the U.S. to investigate human experience
and inspire a collective reading of our lives through photographs.
