PORTRAITS opening at Worksound

Worsound_PORTraits.jpg
Last Night's PORTRAITS show at Worksound was yet another boisterous event (with scenesters and some major patrons) at the altspace ensconced in one of the eastside's oldest and funkiest buildings. A fitting tribute to late photography curator Terry Toedtemeier no traces of cultural doom were to be found here and like many group shows it was a major social event. Also, like most Worksound events it was spilling out into the streets. Sure, commercial galleries have taken their lumps with the crummy economy but Portland has actually been gaining more alternative spaces like Worksound. Here are some PORTraits from the event:
