First Friday Picks September 2009

BobbiWoods.jpg

Fourteen30 presents LA-based artist Bobbi Woods. She "culls from the glut of ready-made images crowding our collective consciousness, resulting in 2-D and video works that simultaneously bait and beguile."

Opening reception • 6-9pm • September 4
Fourteen 30 Contemporary • 1430 SE 3rd • 503.236.1430


VonTundra.jpg

Gallery Homeland presents Further More, the first gallery exhibition by Von Tundra: Dan Anderson, Chris Held, and Brian Pietrowski. The group "looks at the layers of meaning embedded in manmade objects and spaces... combining simple geometry and historical ornament to unpack the duality of constructed items: pragmatic in purpose, stylish in form."

Opening reception • 6-9pm • September 4
Gallery Homeland • 2505 SE 11th • info@galleryhomeland.org

Jeffris Elliott

Newspace presents their first annual juried members' showcase exhibition, featuring photography by 56 Newspace members.

Opening reception • 7-10pm • September 4
Newspace Center for Photography • 1632 SE 10th • 503.963.1935


Senn-seed.jpg
Holly Senn

Holly Senn's installation Tale will be at 23 Sandy this month. Using old book pages, Senn has assembled an 8-foot tall sculptural tree, a series of seed pods, and a lining for the walls of the gallery. Senn's job as a librarian inspires her work: "I create sculptures and installations in which I explore the life cycle of ideas - the organic, non-linear process in which thoughts have a genesis and then are disseminated, adopted or refuted, forgotten or referenced."

Opening reception • 6-9pm • September 4
23 Sandy Gallery • 623 NE 23rd • 503.927.4409


*Update

Rose McCormick

The final installment in NAAU's Couture series opened last weekend to a rave review. Rose McCormick's Grande Ronde is an "art environment." She writes: "The achievement of this work is in it's conception, the finished show a fossil of the experience of discovery. It may be that viewing it is not enough, it may be that you have to have made it as well. But what it strives to do is offer the blueprint for you to create your own experience."

First Friday reception • 6-8pm • September 4
New American Art Union • 922 SE Ankeny • 503.231.8294
