(above – Mark Dean Veca, Sven Davis, Paige Prendergast & Michael Murphy)After months of planning and panel wrangling, the Space//Form group exhibition at Portland’s Breeze Block Gallery opened last week. The group show features 110 artists, each making work thematically linked to Architecture and the environment on a 10×10 inch wooden panel provided by Ampersand – the principal sponsor of the exhibit. Curated by Arrested Motion‘s Sven Davis, each of the paintings was hung in a controlled grid, with the paintings placed randomly as they were unpacked.

Closings: Josh Keyes @ Joseph Gross Gallery (University of Arizona)

Last night, AM attended the closing of Josh Keyes’ show at the University of Arizona (Joseph Gross Gallery). As we discussed in an earlier interview with the Portland-based painter, the body of work consisted of a wonderful mix of new and old pieces giving fans a nice overview of the progression of his aesthetic over the last several years. Included in the selection of new work was a refreshed take on his treadmill imagery, pieces that featured local references, as well as a piece that will […]

Preview: “Space//Form” Group Exhibition @ Breeze Block Gallery

As the opening of the Space//Form group exhibition draws ever nearer, and following on from our studio view, AM brings you a glimpse of some of the work in this huge show. Over 100 artists are participating in the exhibit, which opens on 6th September at Breeze Block Gallery in Portland. The artists were each given the same brief and the same materials to work with and asked to explore and represent their interpretation of space and form within either the natural or built environment. Each piece of […]

Update: Space//Form Group Exhibition @ Breeze Block Gallery

One of the most interesting things about curating a group exhibition of over 100 artists is getting to see behind the scenes as the artists develop their work for the show (Chloe Early seen above). Updates come constantly as the participants share their excitement about creating work for the show, and getting to see  some of the creative process that goes into the work is always a pleasure. Space//Form opens in just a couple of weeks time now in Portland at Breeze Block Gallery and here […]

This past weekend, New York’s Cotton Candy Machine hosted their second annual “tiny” art showcase entitled Tiny Trifecta.

Cotton Candy Tiny Trifecta AM 1

Preview: “Tiny Trifecta” 2012 @ Cotton Candy Machine

This Saturday, New York’s Cotton Candy Machine will be holding its second annual “tiny” art show. Entitled Tiny Trifecta, this year’s edition looks to take it up a notch as each artist creates three pieces of original artwork costing only $100 each. We stopped by the gallery to sneak a peek and noticed that this year, artists aren’t just submitting simple “tiny” sketches. Many took their time to create some significant gems for all their fans out there. Tara McPherson curates a loaded line up […]

Upcoming: Josh Keyes @ Roq La Rue

With his exhibition at the University of Arizona’s Joseph Gross Gallery already open to the public (we’ll bring you photos of the opening reception coming up on August 30th), Josh Keyes (interviewed) is already working on his next showing. Hopefully, this painting from a new studio shot will be part of the upcoming show in Seattle as it already has hard core Keyes fans salivating at a resurrection of some of his most iconic “treadmill” imagery (some examples below). His show with John Brophy opens at Roq […]

We haven’t had a chance to sit down with Josh for some questions and answers […]
