March 2010

Greetings to one and all
It seems that spring is showing its first buds of life so I thought it was time to get busy and write something new.
I am a featured artist at Cannibals Gallery on NW 21st for the month of March so please go take a look and drop me a note. I appreciate your feed back.
Also showing at Cannibals in March is the Octogenarian show with the work of Selma Grossman.
Grossmans takes her clues from her rich Jewish heritage, her many years living abroad, pattern and line. I also had the pleasure of seeing the Portland Art Museums show “Disquieted”
Well known contemporary artists investigate the world we live in and deal with the issues of war, sexism, race, class, and the horrors of the modern age. I enjoyed the show and was taken in by the small sculpture of Ron Mueks, “Crouching Boy in Mirror” and the two paintings by Takashi Murakami and his team. The Disquieted exhibition runs from Feburary 20th to May 16th, 2010.
On view from March 4th to 27th at Laura Russo Gallery are paintings by Lucinda Parker and Rene Rickabaugh. I enjoyed Parkers smaller works the best and found them more intimate. Rickabaugh work is fanatically detailed. It is as if he has gone down to the subatomic level for his inspiration in his jewel like creations. All this great art can be seen at the following places.
