  2. Join Clifford Rainey as he explores the concept, purpose, reason, and processes employed to formulate the works in his solo exhibition 'In the Beginning Was Black', displayed at Bullseye Gallery in Portland, OR September 4 - November 2, 2013.

    Rainey's starting point for the new work is the human experience of loss. Combining this with the physicality of the color black sparked his investigation into the symbolism and the visual elements of this dark dense matter.

  3. Portland artist Crystal Schenk presents a discussion and slideshow about her current and past sculptures, and how she weaves memory, loss, and fragility throughout her artwork. Schenk has a very labor-intensive and detail-oriented way of working, in which craftsmanship and material choices play a large role. Much of her subject matter is drawn from her family history, and her sculptures address issues of grief, physical and mental health/illness, class structure, and social interaction. Images of her work are available at crystalschenk.com

    She also speaks about her new large-scale stained glass work, Shelter, that was exhibited at Bullseye Gallery [bullseyegallery.com] in 2013. This project continues a prior theme in her work, examining the increasing gulf between the lower and upper classes - applying the perceived visual materials of the upper class to a very impoverished way of life as a way of pointing out disparity. Shelter is funded in part by a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council [racc.org].
