A train to DISJETA

You never know what your going to get at the end of the 20 min train ride from PDX to DISJECTA art center. A few of us from NOW took the ride. 

I must say this show has both entertaining and nostalgic. We were met with a sea of blue plastic, a huge installation speaking of mass consumption, while taking us back in time as we caught ourselves finding objects in the mass reminding us of days gone by. Worth the ride….     https://www.disjecta.org/portfolio-items/portia-munson/

An evening with Alison Saar

PNCA hosted a lecture by artist Alison Saar accompanying her exibition Crepuscular Blue at the Center for Contemporary Art & Culture. The timing of this event proved to be extremely fortuitous for 2017 NOW Residency Recipient Sarah Novio, as she is a figurative painter that also works in themes based on the woman’s experience.

Given this divine opportunity Sarah and the Women of the NOW Team bonded before the lecture over cheese, treats, wine and stories.  The lecture and exhibition proved to be powerful and inspiring.  We were grateful to share the experience with one another as the stars aligned to allowed this group of diverse women to discuss & celebrate the diversity of women.

Visiting Artist Stephen Pruitt

Part of the Now Team got to spend time with Stephen Pruitt. Pruitt comes from Austin, TX He is know for his incredible portraiture and landscape photography as well as award winning lighting and set design. Pruitt enjoyed the Eclipse and Oregon’s unique and extraordinary coastline as well as having a guided tour of Portland’s gallery district by NOW’s Gina Hartmann.

Wrapping up his visit Pruitt exclaims “I got to do a very Austin thing in Portland.” We all enjoyed an evening of Wes Anderson on a cool August evening under the stars thanks to Films at Dark in the Park,  a screening of Fantastic Mr Fox.   We hope to see Stephen back in Portland soon.
