Paintings in Julie Green's Food, Fashion and Capital Punishment include hidden content

Julie Green embeds narrative details, easily missed in a cursory look, in or near the borders of each painting. Each also has content not readily visible in the gallery setting: on the front, elements in glow in the dark paint; on the back, facsimiles of women's fingerprints. Once charged in daylight, the glow-in-the-dark paint shines all night long.

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.
