Oregon Painting Society

Student-organized Reed Arts Week begins next week. This year's theme is SUB PRIME 2009, "a celebration of uncertainty and incompleteness, and a refusal to value the pinnacle at the expense of the ascent." From March 4 - March 8 there will be exhibitions, lectures, workshops, performances, and more, so make sure to peruse the schedule. Featured artists include Kasper Hauser, Eugene Tsui, Hot Little Hands, Jason Lazarus, Martin Kersels, Tao Lin, Sarah Ross, Dan Shapiro, Oregon Painting Society, Jorge Lucero, Neal Medlyn, Jeffrey Baker, and blackblack.

Arts Festival • March 4 - 8

From "Guest of Cindy Sherman"

The NW Film Center presents a series of films on art & art documentaries. The series begins on March 5th with a screening of Guest of Cindy Sherman, a controversial documentary about artist Cindy Sherman. Begun as an interview for his cable access show "Gallery Beat," Paul Hasegawa-Overacker and Sherman fell in - and then out - of love. The film documents his painful 15 year journey in Sherman's shadow, and gained notoriety when Sherman separated herself from the project, denouncing the final product as something akin to character assassination. There are over 10 more exciting films in the series, which runs from March 5 through April 4.

Film screening • 7pm • March 5
NW Film Center • Whitsell Auditorium • 1219 SW Park Avenue • box office

Zero Film Fest 2009

The Zero Film Fest is coming to Portland at Gallery Homeland.

Two feature films will be screened, Luke and Brie Are On a First Date at 6:30pm and Alpha Maybe at 8:30pm.

Film screening • 6:30pm • March 1
Gallery Homeland • 2505 SE 11th • info@galleryhomeland.org
