'Endings' at The Art Gym features Srijon Chowdhury with Bobbi Woods

The appropriately titled Endings is Blake Shell's final curatorial endeavor at The Art Gym at Marylhurst University. Endings features work by Bobbi Woods and Upfor artist Srijon Chowdhury.

In Chowdhury’s oil dreamscapes, images seem to arise out of nowhere, arriving with uncanny power. Woods uses photography in a similar way, dislocating subjects from their usual context.

Endings opened January 16 and remains on view through March 4, 2018. It overlaps with Chowdhury's forthcoming solo exhibition at Upfor, The Coldest Night, which opens February 28, 2018.

Ashley Stull Meyers is now curator and director at The Art Gym as Shell focuses on her role as executive director at Disjecta Contemporary Arts Center.

Final day: Ben Buswell's The Story is Not the Story

Today is the final day to take in Ben Buswell's installation of photo-based and glass sculptures. Buswell's works navigate spaces in-between: for example, the wall-hanging photos vibrate between repetition and uniqueness, while the fused glass sculptures seem both soft and immovably solid. Perhaps the most important quality, however, is how these works seem to respond to the viewer's movement through the space – something that requires presence to experience. Today is your last chance. Upfor is open until 6:00 pm.

As always, individual works may be seen by appointment after the exhibition closes. Please inquire for pricing and availability.
