Though the snow has lead to many cancellations
two galleries earn the "TOUGH" award, conferring the right to mock all other Portland gallerists as "snow wusses" for the rest of the year. But seriously, these are two great shows you should see soon if you aren't already downtown... perhaps when things get less blizzardly.
Untitled (Screen at Golf Course Near Hillsboro)
The late Terry Toedtemeier
would have really enjoyed the fact that his show Skies
was opening to such dramatic atmospheric circumstances. We all miss him but it is a beautiful thing to actually get to know more of his work as an important photographer. His photo, Untitled (Screen at Golf Course Near Hillsboro) is a masterpiece. Terry was an intrepid and rugged adventurer and never would a little snow deter him.

The relatively new Hap Gallery replaces the void left in the old Chambers Gallery space with a pretty exciting group show called I Never Can Say What I Mean. Curated by Iris Williamson all of the work explores the way art doesn't fully communicate but instead purposefully lets things get lost in translation with works by Matthew Craven, Jennifer Dalton, Klara Grancicova, Sylvan Lionni, Marius Moldvaer, Justin Plakas, and Samantha Wall. It is across the street from PDX so the gallery hopping IS compact tonight.
