A Case For Abstraction: No Boundaries

“Warlpapuka” (Detail), Tommy Mitchell, 2012, Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, 40″ x 40″ Forgive me. In the middle of summer, this review is late.

I walk through this duality, my thoughts punctuated by the

Renters on the move with Recess

Last night PORT’s Tori Abernathy was on Koin 6 news discussing the Portland Renter’s Assembly and the idea of rent control and its something we have been following (check out this review). First of all, the Koin story conveniently cut out any mention of art but the “space” Tori discussed was Recess’s old home with studios etc. It was a thriving hive for Portland’s vaunted “creative class”. I hate that term but it is true a lot of what has made Portland so desirable (artists re-imagining the world) has also pushed many artists out of their hives. The artists are

Mural project aims to promote community interactions, in person and online (Photo, Video)

Gary Hirsch easily answers the robot’s question, “What brings you joy?” “Connecting strangers,” says Hirsch, a Portland creative who is the artist behind several new interactive murals being installed in Southeast Portland.
