First Thursday Picks April 2010

Megan is on vacation and it's my 11th anniversary of moving to Portland so here are my picks. Also, I'll have an official listing of Judd Month events culminating a world class scholarly conference and Judd exhibition up on Thursday:

Untitled 12-L, 1961-63/1969 Art © Judd Foundation. Licensed by VAGA, New York, NY

To kick off Judd Month Elizabeth Leach Gallery presents Donald Judd Selected Prints. Donald Judd (1928 - 1994) is considered a seminal Minimalist sculptor, known for his total commitment to formal exploration, as well as his intensity of color and the sensuousness of his surfaces. Though originally a painter, Judd made extremely little two-dimensional work. This exhibition of prints from the 1960s offers an extremely rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of this lesser-known aspect of his practice. Though these prints were made at the height of Judd's career, Judd's interest in printmaking began in the mid 1950s, and extended throughout his career, including a brief collaboration with his father, Roy, in the early 1960s.

Studio view, Julia Mangold

Also Judd relevant Portland artist Julia Mangold will be exhibiting New Work while making her gallery debut in Portland. Mangold has shown extensively in Europe, including several solo shows at the Galerie Fahnemann (Berlin, Germany), Galerie Niklas von Bartha (London, England), and Studio La Città (Verona, Italy). Her work has also been shown across the United States, at Rhona Hoffman (Chicago, IL), and Jim Kempner Fine Art (New York, NY). New Work is her first solo exhibition at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery.

Opening reception • 6-9pm • April 1
Elizabeth Leach Gallery • 417 NW 9th • 503.224.0521

Victor Maldonado's Green Screen series at Froelick Gallery

For Judd Month Froelick Gallery presents Victor Maldonado's Less. Honestly it looks like a break through show from one of the Portland art scenes smartest and most active artists while throwing a few conceptual and perceptual monkey wrenches in what has become the look of minimalism.

Opening reception • 5:00-8pm • April 1st
Froelick Gallery • 714 NW Davis Street • info@froelickgallery.com/

In a show that might be Judd related?... Tractor presents Emperical Geodism : Chelsea Lynn Linehan & Nathanael Thayer Moss. A sensory experience of visual and sonic stimulations that they have been tirelessly concocting over the past six months. The presentation will include new paintings, paper sculptures, drawings, and an collaborative light/sound sculpture.

Opening reception • 6-10pm • April 1
Tractor • 328 NW Broadway #114 • charles@tractorpdx.com

Michael Mandiberg, "Merrill Lynch - The Total Money Makeover" at PNCA's The Great Recession,

I also think The Great Recession at PNCA's Feldman Gallery announced earlier this week holds a lot of promise and deserves a look see.
