Upfor at Material Art Fair with Rodrigo Valenzuela

Gallery director Melissa Soltesz traveled to Mexico City to present Rodrigo Valenzuela's newest works at Material. The fair's scaffolding brought to mind Rodrigo's 2015 Future Ruins installation at the Frye Art Museum, making it feel like a particularly appropriate venue for his work. Thank you to everyone who came out to this lively fair! Visit our Artsy page for other available works by Rodrigo Valenzuela.

Rodrigo Valenzuela will lecture at Portland Art Museum tonight at 6:00pm. The Museum debuted Valenzuela's latest video work in Labor Standards, which opened in October 2017 and remains on view through April 22, 2018.

Art for the holidays: $1500 and under

We've curated a holiday selection of accessibly-priced artworks, from $150 to $1500, that make uplifting gifts for friends, family or yourself. Each artwork brims with wall presence, a crisp distillation of eight artists' practices: Ben Buswell, Julie Green, Brenna Murphy, Ralph Pugay, Heidi Schwegler, Krista Svalbonas, Rodrigo Valenzuela and Laura Vandenburgh.

Purchase by December 19 for free ground shipping in the continental US. We're happy to arrange Christmas delivery for an additional cost (subject to FedEx restrictions). Works are unique or in small editions, so don't wait, as we cannot guarantee availability.

Exciting news: Theo Downes-Le Guin, Upfor founder and principal, recently joined the Board of Directors at Oregon Cultural Trust. He was appointed by Gov. Kate Brown and confirmed by the Oregon Senate in November. Congratulations, Theo!

I hope my work on the board will help advance the inclusiveness of artistic experiences for all Oregonians, and further grow interconnectedness between Oregon’s artists and arts audiences, and arts communities of other regions.
