Since First Friday came so quickly this month, a couple of galleries decided to bump it to First Wednesday. Opening this week:
Michael Patterson-Carver, "1967 School Children's March"
This month, Small A Projects will be featuring the drawings of Michael Patterson-Carver. State of the Union
explores the history of social injustice and protest in the United States. Each drawing displays a group of protesters fighting one of the many battles that has shaped American history. By contrasting drawings of such historical groups as the suffragettes with modern illustrations of the "state of the union" (and his own struggle against the Patriot Act), Patterson-Carver seeks to highlight the dark hypocrisy at work in politics today. However, the smiling faces on the protesters reminds us that with action, there is hope.
Opening reception • 6-9pm • February 6

A more local history can be found at Vino Paradiso. Julia Gardner will present her (literally) layered personal view on the buildings and spaces that have shaped Portland and its history. Beginning with industrial urban photographers, Gardner uses resin to layer found objects, paint, and ink, creating a uniquely Portland narrative within each work.
Opening reception • 7-9pm • February 6
