Don’t Forget ArtWalk

posted by on November 6 at 16:14 PM

Yes, the weather is miserable. But I just walked around in it for hours looking for art and it’s worth it. Here’s some of what I found (and a couple of things I didn’t see that are also opening tonight; please don’t blame any of these artists for my bad photography):

Justin Colt Beckman is turning Punch Gallery into a functioning honky tonk. Here it is under construction, with a view of the bar (with “fireplace”), and with a still from the video of him performing country songs. (In case you want to know, they’re serving Busch tonight.)

At Howard House, there’s Richard Barnes’s photographs behind the scenes at natural history museums:

SOIL’s got an installation devoted to Portland Goodwill stores.

And in SOIL’s backspace, a small but interesting show of tactile photographs and a video of a nighttime construction site accompanied by the reading of a love letter, by Josh Tonsfeldt and Uri Aran (images arranged respectively).

At Gallery4Culture, dermatographia artist Ariana Page Russell takes a major step forward in glamor shots that use temporary tattoos made of photographs of her own blushing skin (and a wall covered in her skin):

One more: Angle Gallery, with photographs by Nick Hall documenting an Alaskan salmon run.

Note: Lawrimore Project is closed all day today, so don’t walk yourself all the way down there in the rain!
