3/6/2007 Portland artists featured in 'Dudes Night Out'
McMINNVILLE - Work by eight Portland-area artists will be featured in ?Re: dudes night out: Random Conversations That Lead to Meetings and Exhibitions? from March 12 to April 13 at the Linfield College Fine Art Gallery in the James F. Miller Fine Arts Center.
An opening artists' reception will be held on Friday, March 16, at 6 p.m. in the gallery.
The group exhibition includes installation art, painting, photography, multi-media and sculpture. The title of the exhibit represents the dialogues and casual encounters that take place in the Portland art community, and was taken from the email messages that led to the creation of the exhibit, according to Cris Moss, gallery director.
?The goal of the exhibit is not to address the relationship between the works being displayed but rather to highlight the relationship and support that developed between the artists who created the work and the overall supportiveness of the art community,? he added.
Artists include Bruce Conkle, multi-media art; David Corbett, painting; Jesse Durost, installation art; Jesse Hayword, painting; Marne Lucas, photography; Paul Middendorf, installation art and curator; Sean Healy, multi-media art and sculpture; and Todd Johnson, photography.
The Linfield exhibit is free and open to the public. The Linfield Fine Art Gallery is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The gallery will be open during spring break, March 26-30.
