As part of The Photography Council's Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series at the Portland Art Museum, Myles Haselhorst, Ampersand's founder & director, will trace the evolution of his business. He will touch upon the artists he shows, the books he has published & the vintage photography he collects & sells. Haselhorst opened Ampersand in order to create a space for dialog among forms of photographic & artistic media. Beyond that, Ampersand was created to inspire the impulse to collect. We live in an age of photographic abundance and the photographic community at large seems to have finally embraced the notion that photography fueled by digital technology, is something to celebrate, not condemn. Countless sources of photographic material exist to be collected, catalogued & ultimately shared through amateur archives, internet blogs & DIY small press publications. Haselhorst will touch on this plethora, offering inspiration & direction for those feeling the impulse to collect.

Avantika Bawa is an artist, curator, and academic. Her drawings and site- specific installations transform the act of drawing into sculptural gestures that react formally and also conceptually to architectural spaces and their history. This process emerges due, in part, to her relationship to Minimalism and its emphasis upon reductive form, modularity and literal scale.
Bawa's curatorial work began with a hotel room show during the Art in Chicago fair (98') and has grown through her studio and gallery, aquaspace (a laboratory for new and multi media art). In April 2004 she was part of a team that launched Drain : Journal for Contemporary Art and Culture, a peer reviewed online journal.
She is currently Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at Washington State University Vancouver, WA & once upon a time she taught at Clark College.
