Openings: Neu Folk Revival @ LeQuiVive Gallery

We recently brought you a preview of the group exhibition Oakland based artist Max Kauffman curated at Oakland’s LeQuiVive Gallery. Neu Folk Revival opened on 5th October and displays an analog survey of traditional folk based art with an emphasis on handmade, traditional art-making practices. The range of work on display is wide and varied with artists from a variety of backgrounds being brought together in this well curated exhibition – not necessarily tied together by aesthetic, but rather the emotive aspect of the craft and technique based work of each […]

Previews: “Neu Folk Revival” @ LeQuiVive Gallery

Preview: Ryan Bubnis & Lucas Irwin – “Black & Blue” @ 1975 Gallery

Black and Blue is an upcoming two-person exhibition featuring Ryan Bubnis and Lucas Irwin.

We’re excited to see how they respond to their self imposed constraints, but the black and blue (and all hues in […]

Breeze Block Gallery opened their huge group show Wider than a postcard (previewed) alongside the first solo show in their new gallery 2 space – olive47’s bonita bonita (featured) a couple of weeks back to a packed Portland crowd.

On the back of his Space//Form group exhibition last year (covered), Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis is working with Breeze Block Gallery in Portland again on another huge group event entitled Wider than a postcard. With over 200 artists and 400 individual works, this exhibition looks to be both bigger than the previous event and also smaller at the same time as all of the artworks are postcard sized at 6×4 inches. Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]
