First Weekend Picks November 2010

Appendix Collective

NAAU presents Tropical Depression, a collection of new work by Portland's Appendix Collective: Maggie Casey, Zachary Davis, Joshua Pavlacky and Benjamin Young. "For each artist, form and approach are guided by the properties of their materials and by parameters set by the group. From within their system of collective practice, the artists grapple with the intangible nature of information technologies and systems, and the growing difficulty in distinguishing between the manufactured and the naturally occurring."

Opening reception • 6-9pm • November 5
New American Art Union • 922 SE Ankeny • 503.231.8294

MP5 is having several openings for First Friday, including the first of a series of open houses in the 2nd & 3rd floor artist studios, and the following exhibitions in the lofts:

Josh Smith

Josh Smith presents Parasite (45.52959,-122.579396), the newest installment in an ongoing inquiry that focuses on object-site relationships. Parasite will be installed in the lofts unit 309.

Mariana Tres

Mariana Tres presents Childhood is a Strange Country, an installation concerned with history, fiction, and memory. Tres is the current artist-in-residence at MP5. Her work will be on view in the lofts' lobby exhibition space.

Opening receptions • 5-8pm • November 5
Milepost 5 • 900 NE 81st Ave

Jonathan Leach

Gallery Homeland presents Someday We'll Find It..., new work by Jonathan Leach. "Breaking out beyond the framework of the canvas into something more sculptural, Leach remains rooted in the language developed in his landscapes. The new paintings on plexiglas cubes demand movement from the viewer as they experience the different sides of the composition blending together and changing while circling the object."

Opening reception • 6-9pm • November 5
Gallery Homeland • 2505 SE 11th #136 • info@galleryhomeland.org

Morgan Murphy

Worksound presents LOOK BEHIND YOU, a group exhibition featuring Alexis Mollomo, Suwannee Sarakana, and Morgan Murphy.

Opening reception • 6-9pm • November 5
Worksound • 820 SE Alder • mojomodou@gmail.com


PSU's Autzen Gallery presents I Found This, This That Had Already Been Found, a PSU art alumni exhibition guest-curated by Chris Johanson.

Artist reception • 5-9pm • November 6
PSU Autzen Gallery • 724 SW Harrison • 2nd Floor PSU Neuberger Hall

Evertt Biedler, still from the preview video of "Moves Manager"

Sculpture and installation artist Evertt Biedler presents a new kinetic sculpture, Moves Manager, "the second in a series of projects whose primary aim is to weave art and the business of making and exhibiting art into the fabric of everyday life." They will be filming throughout the day on November 6th at:
7-9am: Portland Community College, Sylvania, TCB 312 and in front of the CC building
9am-12 noon: SW Morrison Street between 3rd Avenue and 10th Avenue, we will board the MAX Blue Line and film on board the rail car
12 noon-2pm: SW Park Avenue (strolling on the sidewalk) between SW Jefferson Street and SW Madison Street
2pm-5pm: Hawthorne Bridge, on the North and South walkways on the west end

Catch a short preview on YouTube.
