first thursday is on thursday: return to art

i've been posting a lot about wieden + kennedy and 12 lately because it's been taking up most all of my time. yesterday, i got a chance to do some artsy-helpy type stuff though. I helped Grass Hut pack up some artwork from the J. Otto show they just had and got a little peek at the the artwork for the upcoming show.

Grass Hut Gallery is preparing for their first friday opening of the Yosemite studio show featuring Souther Salazar, Ester Pearl Watson, Seonna Hong, Martha Rich, and Mark Todd who all share the same studio space. <3

i've been a fan of Seonna Hong's for a while. She does animation backgrounds and doesn't show her artwork very often - which makes her work really scarce and a must have. lately she's been showing at Takashi Murakami's Kaikai Kiki gallery.

it should be a really wonderful show! if you are in the portland area, you should come (or look at the artwork on the website):

"Yosemite studio show"
Grass Hut Gallery
Friday, June 6 2008
6-9pm opening (show runs for the month of June)

and tonight is the opening of two great shows on my old stomping grounds NW 5th & couch:

two japanese artists, MHAK and OEIL will be having their opening at Compound Gallery. i always love to see the new japanese artists that come through compound. because the owner is japanese and their new curator has japanese connections, they are able to have lots of great japanese artists that have either barely or never shown in the US.

"Fractal Edge"
Compound Gallery
107 NW 5TH AVE.
Thursday, June 5 2008
7-10pm opening

trot across the street and at Fifty24PDX, we have the opening of Seven, featuring Corey Arnold, Ryan Bubnis, E*Rock, Caleb Freese & Justin Gorman, Jason Greene, Sara Padgett, and Ryan Jacob Smith. sweet!

ryan bubnis is the best ever, i'm so glad that i'll be able to start my first thursday back in portland with his opening. i've shown his artwork a few times and he's just an all-around ace of a dude. come support him tonight!

Upper Playground's Fifty24PDX gallery only has openings every two months... and this is one of those months... and they don't often show local talent, so you don't want to miss this one!

23 NW 5TH AVE.
Thursday, June 5 2008
7-9:30pm opening (runs until July 26)


in short, it's going to be a wonderful next few days and i will be drowning in all the artsy goodness that is portland (finally!). thank you portland, oregon... it's good to be back. <3
