Culled from 235 nominations, the six artists in the Portland Art Museum’s contemporary awards exhibition represent a wide range—in terms of cities (from Seattle to Jefferson City, Montana), profiles (emerging to MacArthur “Genius”), and styles (color panels of oil and wax to a tower of electric guitars). While it’s difficult not to be excited about the decorated Seattle artist Trimpin’s imaginative, musical installation sculptures, we’re also primed for Isaac Layman’s massive genre-pushing photographs and intrigued by Jackson Hole–wildcard, Abbie Miller, whose “Zipped” series—incorporating vinyl, steel, and hundreds of feet of zippers—are glossy, twisted things that look like a cross between a Lady Gaga outfit, salt water taffy, and some sort of alien intestinal tract.

Update: Trimpin won the awards' highest honor, the Arlene Schnitzer Prize.
