'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.
— The Oregonian

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.
