Pat Boas & Jon Raymond

Portland 2016 Biennial

Opening Reception Saturday, July 16th, 2-4pm

Art Adventure Gallery is pleased to host an exhibition of works by PAT BOAS & JON RAYMOND, curated by Michelle Grabner, in conjunction with the Portland 2016 Biennial of Contemporary Art presented by Disjecta Contemporary Art Center. Extensive travel across Oregon and well over a hundred studio visits were part of Michelle Grabner’s process for curating this Biennial project. The resulting exhibitions provide what Grabner describes as: “a curatorial index that celebrates the broad spectrum of art-making in Oregon and illuminates the research and selection process.”

PAT BOAS makes drawings, paintings, prints and digital projects about the activity of reading. Boas’s work has been shown at the Portland Art Museum, the Art Gym, and Elizabeth Leach Gallery in Portland; the Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe; the Boise Art Museum; the Salt Lake Art Center; the Nicolaysen Museum in Casper, WY; the Center on Contemporary Art in Seattle and the Cleveland Museum of Art. Boas is an associate professor and Director of the School of Art + Design at Portland State University.

JON RAYMOND The Community is a collection of twenty years’ worth of reviews, essays, interviews, and profiles by Portland-based novelist and screenwriter Jon Raymond offering a time-lapse portrait of a medium-sized city’s artistic scene. By turns an ironic, moody, and bemused meditation on the abiding character of the author’s hometown, The Community stands as a significant addition to a small collection of public documents addressing the history and politics of art in the Northwest.

For the month of April, Art Adventure Gallery will feature photography by local author and photographer, D. “Bing” Bingham and students of Jefferson County. Bingham's book, Shaped by the Land, Stories of the rural American West as told in the Dusty Dog Cafe, is this year's Jefferson County Community Read. Students from Warm Springs Academy K-8, Ashwood School, Jefferson County Middle School and Madras High School are participating in a student photography project. Students are reading stories from Bingham's book and making a connection to a story that relates how they are shaped by the land, their community, culture or family. Opening night for the April show is Thursday, April 7th from 5:30-7:00 PM and the public is invited to attend. Snacks and punch will be served.
