Implied Structures consists of recent work that continues Dickason's survey into oil painting utilizing the fundamental ideas of line and shape, contrast, and the physical manipulation of the medium on surface. Characterized by a tension between the formal structure contained within composition and the process that creates them, opaque and transparent layers of paint are applied and with time, they reveal more optically complex structures. Meaning and form are transmitted and transfixed, solely presenting the viewer a contemplation of paint and surface.
On Thursday, June 13, The Northwest Film Center is thrilled to present STRESS POSITION, the latest work by Vancouver, B.C.-based filmmaker A.J. Bond.
Inspired by a flippant remark about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Bond made a bet with close friend and longtime collaborator actor David Amito to see which of them could withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other.
Shot in an avant-garde "torture chamber" in an isolated warehouse, what begins as a bizarre and darkly humorous reality TV scenario quickly spirals out of control, testing the limits of their friendship and exposing the connection between filmmaking and torture.

"The passage of time and the story of the sensuous human experience lay on my work. I erode, then build again, reminiscent objects from the past, cycled through the fire, to the future to erode again." Richard Brandt is inspired by his passion for adventure, experimentation, and the discovery of his true nature. The utensils for tea and his love for the land guide his forms and pace.
John George Larson is a painter and wood fire ceramic artist from southwest Minnesota. He discovered clay at age fourteen as a means of expression and as an alternative way of exploring fundamental physics. John is currently building his fifth wood kiln and maintains his studio in Milan Minnesota. He uses native clays and other indigenous materials to create his works. Under a constant spell to discover the truth, the resulting works are an exploration into the magnification of the object as metaphor and the physical and mental limitations of the human body.
McLemore is a Portland based ceramic professor, and this shows through his work. Guiding students in the observational of natural and human-made structures, his work is formally designed and abstract. His objects currently on display at Eutectic are relics of industrial design. They have been lost, decayed or edited over time, and remain fragments of a greater, discarded system. Organized to implicate utility, the somewhat awkward forms are not tools, yet try to charm with a certain hand-hewn conviction.
Friday June 7th 20 artists at Portland Storage will have their annual open studios. This is always a lively event.

Tonight, galleryHomeland kicks off Weird Shift Con with The Long Share, an exhibition in keeping with the conference of shifted reality that it supports.
"The Conference, an aggregate of interdisciplinary investigations, presentations, performances and puzzles that promise to implode, sinter and splinter (ir)reality prismatically into many new streams for retrieval and report."
"The Long Share exhibit (including works by Peter Claugh, Julia Oldham, Tom Sherman, Stephen Slappe, Soda Jerk, Weird-Fiction and others!) to additional amenities, including the Research Commons, the PDF Library, the dossiers, and the Map Room, paired with fine coffee and edibles, will provide other itineraries betwixt and between the scheduled events." It should be wierd.

Maryann Fielder, Bartenders at Rooftop Happy Hour, Acrylic on canvas, 40x30 inches, 2013
Previously known for her boldly colored paintings, Maryann Fielder is launching an exhibit at 12x16 Gallery of black and white drawings and paintings. Working in this limited palette allowed Fielder to experiment with contrast and subtlety in line and form. Fielder's new sculptures will also be on display.
All of these works, inspired by her impromptu sketches of Portland subjects, continue her exploration of the figure.

In All In, her first solo exhibition at Nationale, Marie Koetje playfully questions formal similarities between the still life and the void of the computer screen. Her display of colorful, painted compositions displaces the gallery's physical boundaries distorting the viewers' conception of space and time.
Koetje accentuates this illusion of unstable three-dimensionality by layering her canvases with boldly colored geometric shapes and patterns, spray-painted mists, and thick, childish squiggles. Through our constant seduction by the infinite pixels within our iPhone or laptop screens, modern life has fragmented into a constant choreography between the dueling aesthetics of fact and fiction.
At Adams and Ollman Moons of a Dewdrop is a collaborative exhibition by artists Paul Swenbeck and Joy Feasley. With shared interests in geology, science fiction, and fringe belief systems, the two artists experiment across a variety of media to create an otherworldly experience rooted in art history as well as craft and folk traditions.
Together, the artists' work forms a supernatural cabinet of curiosities that offers an alternative to mainstream values and belief systems. They look for both questions and answers in uncommon real and imagined places. This is their third collaborative exhibition.
Audrey Smith, a collage artist from Towson, Maryland began experimenting with collage after discovering the work of Max Ernst and the Dada art movement. Smith says, "Collage and assemblage marries what I love about painting and sculpture, and it creates for me a constant challenge as I explore new methods and materials." Smith's collages are small works brightly filled with juxtaposing birds, anatomical drawings and often topped with polka dots.
As a culmination of the Building Visions Series, Recess Gallery presents Latino Art Now. Portland has earned a reputation for being somewhat lily white but instead of simply shrug their shoulders Recess points to a broader community in our midst and will feature a street party and tamale taste off.
The exhibition features: Chris Beanes, Alejandro Ceballos, Claire Barrera, Julia Carrillo, Paul Clay, Edgar Frias, Hector Hernandez, Mark Martinez, Michael Martinez, Jeremy Neldon, Kirk Rea, and Sergio Torres.
"Ritual, The Show" has transformed Blackfish gallery space. An exhibit created by Blackfish member Merridawn Duckler and guest artist Geordie Duckler, invites visitors to partake in three separate experiences that combine ritual and art.
Blackfish is also hosting "Ritual," a companion, group exhibition of works in various media that explore ideas about ritual.

Many have tried to explain color through poetic characterizations and elaborate analytical and organizational systems. Despite these efforts, conversations about color remain subjective with little tie to hard fact.
In conjunction with BECon 2013, Bullseye Gallery presents Chroma-Culture, an exhibition focused on color, featuring fifteen artists from around the world. Color is subjective, explained scientifically as the sensation of the visual spectrum. It is a physical process in which electromagnetic waves of a particular length stimulate receptors within the eye. Within are brain, we transform this into color and form.
Each of the Chroma-Culture artists, using kilnformed glass, approaches color in unique ways, making works that tackle the visual, psychological, symbolic, and cultural implications of color.

PDX Contemporary will hold their summer group exhibition, Range . Summer is a time of exploration. Time to roam and discover something new. This group show is wide and beautiful in artistic expression.
Artist Marisa Green will be exhibiting a show of new cut paper works at Gallery 135, including a collaborative portrait series with photographer Christian Columbres. At the center of these pieces is "Intersect," an 8'x3'x5' suspended paper installation. Two isosceles tetrahedron shapes will hang suspended in mid air, intersecting at the center point. These shapes will be made up of over 1,850 individually suspended paper tetrahedrons. Like two people crossing paths in life, these shapes independent of one another, will be represented by two different shades of gray. At the point of intersection, a kaleidoscope of color will emerge, symbolizing a coming together of the two forms. These two energies forever alter one another, and their journey continue.
