First Thursday Picks March 2008

laura fritz at quality pictures contemporary art
Laura Fritz, still from "Interspace"

QPCA will be unveiling their fourth "Qproject." Interspace is a "fully immersive" video installation by Laura Fritz. The installation continues Fritz's exploration of what happens inside the viewer's mind as expectation and perception are manipulated by a "purposeful and provocative vacuum."

mark hooper at quality pictures contemporary art
Mark Hooper, "Untitled (from the series There:Here)"

Also opening at QPCA: Mark Hooper's There:Here, an exhibition of large-scale photographs that "use metaphorical events and tools to address enabling and predicting change on the physical, psychological or spiritual level."

Opening reception • 6-9pm • March 6
Quality Pictures Contemporary Art • 916 NW Hoyt • 503.227.5060


jim riswold at augen gallery
Jim Riswold, "16 Jesuses Are Better Than One"

The Augen Gallery will also be opening two strong shows this month. Jim Riswold's Selling Jesus will be at the Northwest location. Just in time for Easter, the exhibition is a sort of anti-iconoclasm, playing with the proliferation of commercial images of Christ.

Opening reception • 5-8:30pm • March 6
Augen Gallery NW • 716 NW Davis • 503.546.5056

david hockney at augen gallery
David Hockney, "Henry at Table" (1976)

The Southwest location will be featuring the prints of David Hockney. One of "Great Britain's best-known cultural exports," Hockney's paintings take a foreigner's often hyper-perceptive eye to Southern California and American culture. (Note: Hockney will be joining our own MK Guth at the Whitney Biennial.)

Opening reception • 5-8:30pm • March 6
Augen Gallery SW • 817 SW 2nd • 503.224.8182


james boulton at pulliam deffenbaugh
James Boulton, "Boolean Shark"

At Pulliam Deffenbaugh, James Boulton will be exhibiting Boolean Logic, an homage to 19th century mathematician and philosopher George Boole. The paintings utilize circles, squares, and triangles as "overarching compositional elements" to "synthesize forces from the contemporary world... into abstraction."

Opening reception • 5:30-8pm • March 6
Pulliam Deffenbaugh • 929 NW Flanders St. • 503.228.6665


animal magnetism at igloo

Continuing the themes of Limelight, IGLOO asked artists to explore what captivates an audience. The work in Animal Magnetism explores what it takes to mesmerize - or polarize - their viewers, playing with the tension between attraction and revulsion and how those visceral reactions hold our attention.

Opening reception • 6-10pm • March 6
IGLOO • 625 6th #102 • iglooarts@gmail.com


keith rosson at the life gallery

For the month of March, The Life presents Keith Rosson's Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons, featuring an after-party with Rosson's band Neckties Make Me Nervous (and friends).

Opening reception • 7pm • March 6
The Life • 625 NW Everett St. #107 • 971.544.1365

Comments

Also: don't miss Ethan Rose's player piano installation at Tilt. Rose is a venerated local musician whose ambient sound-scapes and frequent overlap with visual art projects (such as work with video artist Ryan Jeffrey in the band Small Sails) have earned him acclaim from all over. Those are his songs during the skating scenes in the new Gus Van Zandt movie.
