picks for Eastside arts
There are a couple of openings Eastside tonight that are worth noting.
First up, at galleryHOMELAND (2505 SE 11th at Division) Incompletely, a group show curated by Portland artist, designer, PNCA grad, and scene documenter (OPENWIDEpds, Calvin Ross Carl. It features a group of artists—Carl, Derek Franklin, Ashley Sloan, Josh Smith, Bailey Winters and Gary Wiseman—whose work is diverse (ranging from social practice to sculpture) so it will be interesting to see how the work hangs together around its stated theme.
At Worksound (820 SE Alder), the summer group show is The Future in Retrospect, with work by E*Rock, Ryan Jacob Smith, Aidon Kotch, Cassie Adams-Harford, Tara Jane O’Neil, Adam Baz, Nas Champas, Valentine Falcon, Robert Khasho, and Peter Lavigne-Chalek.
Meanwhile, in Part 2 of a Portland-Astoria art exchange engineered by Portland artist/curator/impresario John Brodie, Astoria comes to Portland is at 12×16 Gallery (8235 SE 13th) with work by Astoria-based artists Brenda Harper, Roger Hayes, Brandon Hoffman, Philip Johnson, Nicholas Knapton, Darren Orange and Jessica Schleif.
