Later Tuesday night at 7:00PM take in a panel discussion for Collider, an exhibition I curated to explore impure or accretive abstract painting in Portland. The panel features 5 of the show's 6 artists: Amy Bernstein, Jesse Hayward, Victor Maldonado, Nathanael Thayer Moss and Eva Speer, moderated by yours truly. It should another rigorous and energetic discussion worth attending. (Look I hate those typically dull panel discussions and I promise this wont go that route). The Littman Gallery will be open from 6-7PM for extended viewing as well.
