On June 24th, Nucleus Portland opened a solo show by Maxwell McMaster titled Cherish the Day. On view through July 20th, the uplifting show is primarily inspired by those precious moments that remind us that life is beautiful and how each day is a gift.

Tonight in Portland, Antler Gallery will be opening two person show entitled Anthropocene featuring the work of Scott Listfield and Brin Levinson. The title of the exhibition refers to the epoch in Earth’s history where human activity has become the dominant force of change on our planet, something Listfield took to heart as he painted his signature astronaut while thinking about our increasing reliance on technology and decline in the biodiversity on our earth. Discuss Scott Listfield here.

Organizers Gage Hamilton and Matt Wagner of Hellion Gallery hope that the art will draw Portland’s residents away from their daily routine. Enjoy some photos […]
