DEMay-Marker.jpg
D.E. May, "Marker"

D.E. May presents Black Page, new drawings at PDX Contemporary. All of the work is presented in thick, plastic archival document holders, which offer "a surprising tactile quality and a screen-like presentation: x-ray, film, radar." May was a finalist in PAM's 2008 CNAA's.

Joe Bartholomew

Chambers@916 presents digital prints, paintings on canvas and video animation by Joe Bartholomew. "Extending existing systems, Bartholomew bases his images on generalizations or modifications of perspective projection, the golden rectangle, tilings, and grids... The result is a series of vivid color images translated from mathematical language." (Full disclosure: This blogger also works with Chambers@916.)

Opening reception • 6-9pm • June 4
Chambers@916 • 916 NW Flanders • 503.227.9398

Green_Oregon.jpg

After all the drama a few months ago curators Justin Bland and Mia Nolting are pleased to present Green Oregon. From greenwashing to Green Anarchy, to the timber industry to marijuana, green is everywhere in Oregon, including the art. Green is at the heart of some of the most important issues of our time and also the biggest cliches. By bringing together a diverse group of Oregon artists whose work relates to these issues in different ways, Green Oregon explores how various definitions of green interact with one another and what they have to say about us. The show features work by Robert Adams, Bruce Conkle, Erik Geschke, Maria T. D. Inocencio, Marne Lucas, Justin "Scrappers" Morrison, TJ Norris, Ryan Pierce, Patrick Rock, Mark R. Smith, Bailey Winters and Christy Wyckoff.

Opening reception • 6-9pm • June 4
PNCA's Manuel Izquierdo Gallery • 3D building (825 NW 13th)
