RECESS is excited to present a curated exhibition of resumes and curriculum vitae collected throughout the early months of 2013. The exhibition will open in conjunction with their 2013 open studios. Making a resume is a challenge. Job seekers are pressed to reduce their experiences into coherent chunks, hoping to manifest their specific person-hood on the page. In both content and form, the resume or curriculum vitae becomes a singular portrait of the job seeker's professional self. For Hire explores the methods adopted by job seekers to vocalize their professional merit. For Hire is an exhibition of resumes accepted through an open call in March of 2013.
Not only does RECESS have great events and good exhibits, but also it is home base for several artist who have studios there. On April 5th these artist are opening the doors of their studios and sharing their work. The artists include : Maggie Craig (Figurative Painting), Jenny Vu (Drawing, Painting & Comics), Lucile Marlome (Jewerly Making), Erica Edmonson (Sculpture & Textiles), Ashley Burke (Graphic Design), Paul Clay (Video & Performance), and Chloe Kendall (Video & Printmaking).

Time. Good time. Snake time. Traveling through time, clothes dissolving. Glass growing then stopping. Immortal stone golems look on. Time scattering, centered on nodal points expanding into fields. The time garden revolves, inverts: a series of interlocking hedges. Future time collapses. In the old time, the cows were dogs; the rocks were people. When traveling through time the most important thing is to forget the future. You carry your head in a backpack behind you. You spill your milk and it floats forward, slowing then stopping. A snake grows legs and then drowns itself.

Brad Mildrexler, detail of work for "Monoliths & Megaliths" at Eutectic Gallery
Eutectic Gallery presents "Brad Mildrexler: Monoliths and Megaliths," showcasing selected works from the artist's SE Portland studio. An installation of large, coil built totems and thick, slab built wall pieces, encrusted with the artist's signature igneous-like glazes. Mildrexler's abstract sculptures suggest they may have been created by natural forces and exposed by the erosion of time.
Combining natural slips, rocks, glass, sand and even concrete to formulate his glazes, which mature above 2250 degrees, it is hard not to think of Brad Mildrexler as a modern day Vulcan, smithing ceramic homages to the fire that creates them. His works are known for their intense scale and Mildrexler himself is praised for experimenting and investigating the creative process of manipulating heat, earth, rock, and sand.

A vase of lavender lilacs, a kitsch cowboy hat candle, and a pornographic DVD are arranged precisely atop a bold, black-and-white striped cloth. Breaking away from the more conscious brushstrokes and adolescent dealings of his past work, Nationale welcomes Portland local Ty Ennis. Dealing with nostalgia, physical delight, and hidden sadness, Ennis' iridescent colors freely bleed onto the page unhindered by the caging of either line or background. From symbolic portraits of prominent figures-such as adult film starlet Jill Kelly-to wry, often voyeuristic, glimpses into the lives of others, his visions are fraught with the push and pull between fantasy and reality. Together, and without false sentiment, these works ultimately fashion an honest portrayal of pleasure and self-acceptance.
