The next exhibition at the White Box will be COLLECT FOUR: Scenes From Portland’s Bleeding Edge. This show includes four artists and is curated by Jesse Hayward. He is the subject in this interview.

Hayward claims: "The artists in this show are all, first and foremost, collectors. Ben collects moments. Jason collects motif. Midori collects abstractions while Matt collects simplicities. They are earnest. They emphasize the clean and clear display of their artwork. These are not artists who confuse, misdirect or rely on trickery for effect. These are artists who sample first and filter later. Their early careers run parallel as well. All studied art and show regularly in town. Most participate in art collectives. They are roughly the same age and live in the same part of town. So in this show, we are truly watching different aspects of the same attitude, a very Portland attitude."

The show includes:Matthew Green, Midori Hirose, Jason Traeger and Benjamin Young. It opens today with a reception on the 5th.

Lately Art Focus has been looking at people who operate art spaces, many of them alternative. But what about those who operate sans space? People who make things happen unattached to real estate? Jennifer Stoots is a prime example. She is a photography specialist, advising clients and collectors, appraising artworks, curating exhibitions, writing and lecturing. She also represents artists, including Stu Levy, who has a show up at Augen Gallery right now.

Art Focus continues its series on local art spaces. Lately we're consumed with pop-up galleries which are taking advantage of all the vacant real estate. Tiffany Ruth has a regular art space in NW Portland called T. Ruth Artspace which is showing Chelsea Rose this month (see image). Chelsea does incredible body painting and her partner, Danny Rodriguez, works on the photo documentation. All three joined us at KBOO. Tiffany Ruth is also masterminding pop-up galleries in the NW Thurman area, with an artwalk every third Thursday.
