Joshua Orion Kermiet and Midori Hirosi
Sadly, Fontanelle, one of Portland's most beloved semi-alternative spaces, is closing. They've gotten a lot of love here at PORT in the brief year and a half they've been open:
The Joshua Orion Kermiet and Midori Hirose show was reviewed this summer
, and then won Best Group Show of 2009 in our readers' poll
The exhibition Queer Gaze
got noted this fall
The Oregon Painting Society at Fontanelle was reviewed
a year ago.
Not to mention all the calendar notes and picks lists. Thanks Leslie & Jess for some great programming and a wonderful use of that space, which has formerly housed Elizabeth Leach and Chambers. (So who's next?)
Fontanelle will be hosting a closing party this weekend featuring DJ Party Martyr and the sale of the Fontanelle: Year One
book. It'll also be your last chance to see Julianna Bright's Our Songs of Experience
(you can also contact the gallery to make an appointment to see it this week).
Farewell party • 7-9pm • January 22
• 205 SW Pine • 503.274.7668
Opening a gallery is always a brave and usually honorable thing... even in the best of economic times.
I say salute the brave, farewell Fontanelle!
