Continuing their 30 year anniversary celebration, Elizabeth Leach is opening two shows this week:
Matt McCormick, "Crescent Motel"
In The Great Northwest
, Matt McCormick presents video installation and photographs inspired by a scrapbook created in 1958 by four friends and found by McCormick in a thrift shop. The scrapbook details their Northwest travels together, which McCormick recreated in spite of a new highway system and towns that entirely disappeared. The resulting video and installation is his documentation of the process, which "reminds the viewer of the fragility of history, of the swift passage of time."
Dan Attoe, "Monument Valley Meteor Shower"
is a group exhibition that "recognizes and celebrates the ever-changing Portland art community," including current and former Portland artists. Featured artists include Dan Attoe, MK Guth, Jessica Jackson Hutchins, Johanna Jackson, Chris Johanson, Arnold Kemp, and Michael Lazarus.
