DRAW SPACE V

For this month's installation of DRAW SPACE, we celebrate English artist + occultist AUSTIN OSMAN SPARE, who became famous during the early-twentieth century for his exquisite linework + provocative, at times grotesque, imagery.  He is known for his development of creative techniques which explore the relationship between the conscious + unconscious self, including AUTOMATIC WRITING + DRAWING.  The idea is to let the hand move freely across the paper, inviting CHANCE to guide the way.

THIS TUESDAY, we invite artists + doodlers of all levels to make a spontaneous work of art at DRAW SPACE, North Portland's informal, monthly drink + draw.  As usual, TRUST will provide paper, some drawing tools, collage supplies + reference materials, but feel free to bring your own.

All participants will have the opportunity to show their piece exhibited at TRUST's inaugural EAST SIDE small works art show, which will take place on LAST THURSDAY, AUGUST 31st, from 6-8 pm.  

21+ only / FREE entry with bar purchase

DRAW SPACE is EVERY THIRD TUESDAY in The Wild + Free Room at BACKYARD SOCIAL, 1914 N. Killingsworth at Denver Avenue

A Garden of Forking Paths, December 1-22, 2016

Inspired by the nonlinear narrative style of Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), A Garden of Forking Paths is an exhibition of eight Portland printmakers, each asked to view their process as something fluid, in which each step influences, but doesn't necessarily predict, the  next.  Results may be unexpected, unconventional, or uncharacteristic of the artist's typical style.  Risks are taken and decisions made, for the sake of moving forward, of making connections, of finding A way, as opposed to THE way. 

Curated by Noelle Suzanne Barce, AKA Epochal Void
