With limited time last night I headed out to see a few of the openings on the hill with Portland artist Kelly Neidig in tow and snapped a few quick shots before my camera battery died. Here's what I got:
Portland checking in on Seattle at Gallery 206
Cait Willis with her first big solo show, Mono No Aware, since her accident last year - a very lovely and interesting batch of "glitch" paintings at Ghost Gallery.
More work by Cait at Ghost, as well as some prints by Chris Sheridan on the coffee table.
Maybe I should take all my pics from this angle....Shaun Kardinal's exhibition, Connotations, at Joe Bar was a big hit.
one of Shaun's lovely geometric string works.
I also swung by stencil artist Greg Boudreau's studio and Vermillion had some crazy installation piece that involved the guys from Free Sheep that was pretty insane, didn't get a chance to really check it out yet...
And that was it for the Molorazzi this time, hardly any awkward photos, sorry to disappoint!
I'm not really posting so much about this subject right now, but it is something that has been discussed of late, in the community and I wanted to share 2 things on the subject, for those of you who come to Molo's Sketchbook to fine general writing about art -
First, Sharon Arnold has compiled a nice list of blogs/etc about local arts writing on her blog, Dimensions Variable
And Second, Sharon Butler, an artist/writer who currently is part of an excellent show at Season gallery, is hosting a panel discussion on the subject of DIY Arts Writing, at Cornish, on April 20th. Facebook event post here.
I'm hoping to make the talk and see what all the fuss is about.
