First Thursday Picks August 2007

Joe Thurston at Elizabeth Leach
Joe Thurston, "Correspondence"

For the month of August, the Elizabeth Leach Gallery presents Then, Quite Suddenly, We Were Simply No Longer Anywhere, an exhibition by Joe Thurston. Thurston's painstakingly hand-carved relief paintings expose the labor of the relief process, while exploring the tactile possibilities of the painted surface.

Opening reception • 6-9pm • August 2
Elizabeth Leach Gallery • 417 NW 9th Ave. • 503.224.0521


Louis Bunce centennial at Laura Russo
Louis Bunce, "Studio with Still Life" c.1938

This month, the Laura Russo Gallery is commemorating the career of Northwest painter Louis Bunce (1907-1983), who would have turned 100 years old on August 13. Bunce spent his teenage years in Oregon, and returned to the region as an adult to teach at the Museum Art School (now PNCA) and participate in the development of contemporary art in the NW. In the 1950s he painted a mural in the Portland International Airport that still hangs today, and in 1979 the Portland Art Museum honored him with a retrospective.

Opening reception • 5-8pm • August 2
Laura Russo Gallery • 805 NW 21st Ave. • 503.226.2754


Jim Neidhardt at Blackfish
Jim Neidhardt

This August, Jim Neidhardt will be exhibiting Triple Threat in a Negative Space at the Blackfish Gallery. Triple Threat is an installation of several word videos. Each screen displays a stream of text with no beginning or end, constructing a sense of interior dialog. The texts are re-presentations of the writings of Thomas Bernhard.

Opening reception • 6-9pm • August 2
Blackfish Gallery • 420 NW 9th Ave. • 503.224.2634


Jubal Nance at PAC
Jubal Nance, from "Space Garbage 3"

For the month of August, Jubal Nance has installed Space Garbage 3 in the Main Gallery at PAC. The life size installation uses 21st century junk and recycled materials to create a dirty, industrial, yet playfully interactive space.

Opening reception • 6-10pm • August 2
Portland Art Center • 32 NW 5th Ave. • 503.236.3322


Justine Kurland at PDX Contemporary
Justine Kurland, "Mama baby, procession"

This month, PDX Contemporary presents True Bearing, a group show exploring hope in daily life. True Bearing is not about the grand gesture or climactic moment, but rather the small day to day objects and events that orient us to our worlds. The exhibition features Justine Kurland, Sam Beebe, Christophe Berhault, Nick Blosser, Harrell Fletcher, Lucas Foglia, Raymond Meeks, Megan Murphy, Barbara Stafford, and Nell Warren.

Opening reception • 6-8pm • August 2
PDX Contemporary • 925 NW Flanders St. • 503.222.0063


Benjamin Hanawalt at Custom Gallery & Showroom
Benjamin Hanawalt, "It Was Already Too Late"

This month, Custom Gallery will be exhibiting the oil painting of Seattle based (but Portland native) artist Benjamin Hanawalt. Anemone blends abstract shape layers with 50s-influenced glam girls to create a body of paintings reminiscent of the Pop Art movement.

Opening reception • 6-9pm • August 2
Custom by ConstructaVision Gallery & Showroom • 921 NW Everett St. • 503.595.5111
