John Motley/ Matt Cosby


This coming week I will be on KBOO twice. On the 22nd, John Motley will join us for a discussion on his new book, Stay Time. It's a collection of essays which were developed right alongside the exhibition program at Fourteen30.

Then on Wednesday, the 23rd at 11:30AM, I'll have Matt Cosby on the air. He has a painting show up right now at Augen Gallery.

Place, a Pop-up Gallery in Pioneer Place


Artists are taking over shuttered storefronts, transforming them into exhibition spaces. The top floor of Pioneer Place, once a hopeful shopping mall, was empty. Now we have Place, a group of galleries featuring installation and work from PNCA students. Gabe Flores and Gary Wiseman are curators behind the project and they will be my guests this Tuesday on Art Focus.



This week Art Focus continues a small series of interviews with gallerists and directors, the people who make spaces happen. We need to celebrate the people who have hung in there. So far I’ve featured Onda Gallery, 12 x 16, Murdoch Art Services and Disjecta. On Tuesday I will have Timothy Mahan on. He directs Half/Dozen. Grant Hottle is currently showing (see fab painting) – and he will also join us.

Michael Knutson


I am back from a hiatus for pledge drive this week - and the October show at Blackfish of Michael Knutson. What a great and easy way to return! My own enthusiasm for his remarkable paintings is evident in this video we made together a couple of years ago. In the video, he makes references to Albers, Held and Monet as he explains his process and the results. Maybe that sounds kind of dry and it isn't - he's got a sense of humor too. His new show opens this coming First Thursday.

Listen to the interview here.

Julie Perini


Julie Perini will talk about Girl Next Door, a video at Pushdot.

Sherrie Wolf


In August Sherrie Wolf will show “Faces” at the Laura Russo Gallery. All the paintings of faces are from art history. She's my guest on August 3rd.

Diane Jacobs

This Tuesday Diane Jacobs will be my guest on Art Focus. Currently she has a show up called Bowing to Paradise at 23 Sandy – an installation in the front gallery and a room full of objects in back. The gallery website has plenty of installation shots.

Jeff Jahn and "Vection"


Jeff Jahn blasted into this town over ten years ago, curating group shows with far-reaching consequences. It’s safe to say that the PDX art world, as viewed through the commercial gallery system back then, seemed overly familiar. His curation of “The Best Coast,” “Play” and “Fresh Trouble” are just a few examples of his success at revealing a different kind of Portland art world. Jeff also co-founded PORT, a website all about Portland art – and he occasionally writes elsewhere (such as for Modern Painters).

calvin ross carl


Calvin has a show up right now at Half Dozen. He's also a curator AND contributes (if not directs) OPENWIDEpdx, a favorite website of Portland's art world. He's my guest this coming Tuesday.


Listen to the interview here.

Deanne Belinoff

Deanne Belinoff has a show up at Beppu Wiarda. Her mixed media works look at the Big picture and the connectedness of all things. She’s my guest tomorrow on Art Focus.
