In “Memory of Never” Portland, Oregon photographer Ray Bidegain explores the genre of the diptych through the pairing of photographs, one from his catalog, and one newer work that he feels interacts with the old work in an interesting way. These two handmade platinum prints are presented side by side, and in this way Bidegain is creating conversations previously unspoken. He is interested in the way in which these conversations will be heard differently by each viewer, and how that may vary from what he was thinking about when pairing the photos. The relationship between these pictures will be fleeting – a brief interaction for the purpose of this exhibit – and then they will go back to being presented and sold individually.

Part of this exhibition also includes a few paired photos from Bidegain’s new series, “As We Get Older.” In this series he is exploring the challenge and beauty that accompanies aging. He captures physical changes and enduring spirit, as well as the ways in which society’s gaze turns away from older people. These are the first images presented from this developing body of work.

Goodnoe Hills, Washington
Corvallis photographer Rich Bergeman's black-and-white photographs chronicle the disappearing traces of frontier days on Columbia Plateau and Northern Great Basin--deserted homesteads, abandoned schoolhouses, ghost town and other remnants of early attempts by Euro-Americans to settle the Northwest.

The photographer has spent much of the past two decades creating art out of forgotten histories in Oregon and Washington, focusing particularly on the far-flung eastern parts of both states. The CCA exhibit includes images of old towns, historic ranches and deserted homesteads from the High Desert and mountain mining areas of eastern Oregon, as well as the Okanogan and Palouse regions of Washington. Such formerly prosperous turn-of-the-century Oregon towns as Flora, Antelope and Granite are represented, as well as Goodnoe Hills and Molson in Washington, among others.

An exhibiting fine-art photographer for nearly 30 years, Bergeman retired from teaching photography and journalism at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany in 2007, and since then has been working full-time on his photography projects. In recent years he has created books and exhibits on the homestead land rush in Central Oregon, the life of Washington pioneer James Swan on Willapa Bay, the human history of Oregon's Coast Range rivers, and the landscapes of the Rogue River Wars in Southern Oregon. Examples of his photographs can be seen at richbergeman.zenfolio.com, and at blurb.com.

Ruth Glacier and Mountains, Alaska, 2018
These photos have been made in the past 4 years. A few notes:

Alaska – flying in a small plane over the Ruth Glacier. It is to the Southeast of Mt. Denali and is over 3700 feet thick. The peaks rise 4000 to 5000 feet over it. The crevasses are 50 to 100 feet deep.

Arizona and Utah – hoodoos, arches, etc.

California – The Calla Lily is in the driveway to Ansel Adams’s house where his son and daughter in law reside; I was visiting for Jeanne Adams’s birthday last year.

Cuba – decaying beauty; surreal street art

Massachusetts – The Great House, Crane Estate on Castle Hill, Ipswich, Massachusetts, referred to by the locals at the “house that toilet’s built”

Oregon – the light during a total eclipse comes from the corona of the sun – much different from the light from the sun’s surface

Scotland – I told my friends I was into The Dead, but all they did was drink a few beers and take me to a bunch of cemeteries.

In this exhibit Chipman employs gold leaf in her photography to explore the concepts of longing for something that is gone. The Welsh have a word for it, “Hireath”. It is about the yearning and longing for someone or someplace that you can never experience again.

Chipman visited Santa Rosa California 6 months after the Tubbs fire and Paradise California 4 months after the Camp fire, both fires decimated whole neighborhoods, she photographed was was left. Juxtaposing that with gilded images of childhood and childhood artifacts she builds upon this theme of grief or sadness for who or what you have lost, losses which make your “home” someplace you can never return to.

www.pamelachipman.com

As an artist, Pamela Chipman produces work that explores personal identity through a variety of portals. She studied video and photography at UCLA. In the late 1980’s she moved to Portland and co-created the Blue Gallery, an innovative gallery and performance space designed as a place to present challenging art. Chipman's work has screened across the country in galleries and on community television channels, and is held in private collections.

Her current work in photography and video explores personal identity through the dialogue of artifacts and language. Chipman’s work revolves around ordinary people performing ordinary tasks, emphasizing their movements, their space, their quiet, their noise, their relationship to the air around them, and the influences on their lives. Working in a non-liner fashion, she explores her subjects' relationships to the past, and creates a visual space for her subjects and their reflections to inhabit. Starting with simple memories and stories she reveals their power as tributes to the personal courage and introspective depth of her subjects.

Throughout Chipman’s career she has explored the potentials of the video medium through a wide variety of project, ranging from video-poetry, live television, game- shows, installations, and documentary projects. Through all of this work she has focused on video and photography as tools for reaching a broad artistic audience, and for building community. She continues to explore new methods of integrating media into our visual world through installations and video books, and public art.

Open Wed-Sun 11am-6pm // Open until 8pm every First Friday of the month


Wolff Gallery is pleased to present a group show featuring new work by the members of Small Talk, a collective of seven women photographers based in Portland, Oregon.

"As a collective, we have the honor of witnessing and discussing the progression of our individual works. We find ourselves traveling along parallel paths, drawn to new directions and processes. We discover common ground in similar themes, investigating dark corners and intimate places. Here, our realities, our unverified stories, come together for a time before continuing onward. We present selections of new work from each member curated to tell a temporary fiction of rumor and truth."

Small Talk is a photography collective comprised of seven women: Audra Osborne, Briana Cerezo, Jennifer Timmer Trail, Kelli Pennington, Kristina Hruska, Leslie Hickey, and Marico Fayre. The collective formed in Portland, Oregon in 2015.

As a group, we explore the nature of what it means to be a visual storyteller, pool resources, provide support and critique, and facilitate community events and discussions. We engage in the best kind of “small talk,” that which binds us together both as a collective and within a larger community of women and minority artists, fostering stronger work and collaboration. Our first book, We’re Always Touching by Underground Wires, was published in April 2018.

My Mother in Bed with Roses, 2017
“My mother, my sister, and I perform for each other, for the camera, and ultimately for you. We impersonate each other and ourselves, emulating imagery that taught us to be beautiful.”

Natalie Krick’s series Natural Deceptions is a playful, performative exploration of identity in relation to cultural expectations of feminine beauty and sexuality. Made in collaboration with her mother and sister, Krick employs the visual languages of fashion photography and celebrity portraiture. However, the visual complexity of her multilayered, vibrant portraits reveals a decidedly female gaze behind the camera, one that eschews hypersexualization or idealization of the female body. Instead, Krick reveals photography’s role in the creation of these optical illusions within popular culture.

Natalie Krick (b. 1986 in Portland, Oregon) currently lives in Seattle, Washington. She received her BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts in 2008 and her MFA in photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2012. She has recently exhibited at SOIL Gallery in Seattle; Webber Represents in London; Aperture Gallery in New York; and Weinberg/Newton Gallery in Chicago. In 2015 she received an Individual Photographer’s Fellowship from the Aaron Siskind Foundation and in 2017 she received the Aperture Portfolio Prize for Natural Deceptions.

Bernard C. Meyers notes, “I want to rattle the bones of a building, shake common perceptions of concrete reality. I want the temporal elements shifting between both the original architecture and my imagination. For me the higher ground of art has always been occupied by the unexplainable, the abstract.

“I see architecture as possibilities, as material to mold and shape. My intent is to uncover uncommon collisions of color and form, to exemplify texture and the rearrangement of line. I am building and deconstructing simultaneously. I want the original geometric intentions of the structure to find new life. I want these elements to discover a new context, a world off kilter, where conventional space is fraught; as if caught between like ends of magnets.

“Committed to lens-based capture I ask myself this question, “What is visually possible with new cutting-edge technologies, software and how can I apply it to my work?” Within that question this project was born. From a background as an architectural view camera photographer I have found a visual language between the structural impossibilities of M.C. Escher and the complex color spaces of Richard Diebencorn. The world of abstract expressionism has new chapter being written with the tools and techniques of the twenty-first century.

“I am celebrating the latent beauty possible with the building blocks of 2D design, color and the technology available in 2019. The distinctions between painting, printmaking and photography for me have become irrelevant as all disciplines merge in these images. I love the work, it both intrigues and surprises me. The reward lies in creating what I have never seen before. Throughout my career as an artist my guiding premise, from Minor White, has always been, photograph something not for what it is but for what it can become.”

Bernard C. Meyers is recognized internationally as an artist and master printer. His work is held in public, private, and corporate collections nationwide. He is represented by the Klotz Gallery in New York. Portfolios can be seen at www.klotzgallery.com/bernardmeyers. His pursuit of beauty and the abstract has been an unwavering life-long passion.

Bernard earned an MFA in traditional printmaking, etching and lithography and a BFA in photography as a fine art from the Rochester Institute of Technology. In the eighties he founded and managed a fine art printing business, Portland Photographics specializing in portfolio and an exhibition photographic printing. This rapidly became one of the finest photographic printing facilities drawing clients from Magnum, National Geographic, ICP and photographers from around the world. From 1990 through 2010 his photographic studio specialized in architectural photography and art reproduction.

Bernard has taught photography at the University of New England and the University of Southern Maine, Rochester Institute of Technology and the Maine Workshops and currently at the Waterford School in Sandy. Throughout all of this time he has continued to exhibit work. Klotz gallery has featured his work at the last three AIPAD shows. His exhibition history includes numerous group and solo shows. In 2017 early Urban Abstracts work was a solo show of large prints exhibited at the Rochester Institute of Technology University Gallery.

Blue Moon Camera and Machine in St. Johns is one of the few remaining labs dedicated to film and analog photography, and one of the last optical printing labs in the country. Such a specialized lab attracts a specialized crew to staff it, and when they’re not busy printing, developing, or scanning away, this group is out and about in the world with fully-loaded cameras.

The annual staff show displays photos from the current members of the Blue Moon Camera and Machine staff, curated by the photographers themselves as pieces representative of their current work. It provides a glimpse into the lives of those who spend their days immersed in the photographic work of others, and how they choose to pursue their own photographic interests.

This is a photographic art show with free admission that is open to the public. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, March 16th, 2019 from 7pm-9pm. The show will hang until April 4th, 2019.

Spencer is a queer photographer and a writer living in Portland; they identify as a non-binary femme (they/them pronouns), graduated from PSU, and are currently working in the service industry fulltime and making art when they can. They have been taking photos since they were 17, but it wasn’t until purchasing a Yashicamat 124g five years ago that their approach to photography changed.

Most of the presented works have been captured using an Olympus XA and a Hasselblad 500c. Their work is a mixture of landscapes and portraiture from their portfolio; the collection on display has been taken over the course of the last 3 years varying from travels through abandoned factories in Leipzig to intentional styling of a set. Most of their work revolves around explorations of queerness and identity. Spencer’s portraits originally started during a darkroom class at PSU in fall 2014, interpreting themes of existence and isolation as a queer and trans person in a society that - at a federal level - is working to erase trans identities.

These works are but the start of something bigger.

Catherine Haley Epstein is an award-winning writer, artist, designer and curator. Over the past eight years she has pioneered the incorporation of scent into her visual and conceptual art practice. The effect has been an entirely new and more abstract dynamic to her work.

Mixing scent requires chance, knowledge and courage. In this installation, "My Nose Made Me Do It," the artist has combined visuals with which she has been obsessed for over twenty years in the same manner she has combined scent materials - with love, patience and curiosity. The installation is a weaving of philosophy, art history and multimedia where scent, visuals, text and sculpture become distilled tales of her nose journey to date.

Most recently Catherine attended the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference at Middlebury College in Vermont, and spoke at the Society of Illustrators in New York on her writing and scent practice. She is a multimedia artist and has recently done educational programming around scent at the Portland Art Museum, and with Public Annex, who serves community artists with disabilities. In 2016 she was selected to exhibit her experimental fragrance project at the inaugural AIX Scent Fair at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. She is the recipient of the 2017 Perfumed Plume Award in Fragrance Journalism, for her writing on the use of scent as an art medium, and has served on the panel for Visual Artist grants for the National Endowment for the Arts.

The adventure mountain and ocean photographs on canvas and aluminum are on display at the Oregon Law Gallery from January 21 to June 11, 2019 from 9 to 8 PM daily.

Klein’s photography often is the result of long backpacking hikes into national parks and wilderness areas. The beauty of flowers, landscapes, and running water come through in his wonderful images. As Klein explains ‘my love of nature has nurtured my love of photography.”

Photographs by Leslie Peltz of silos used for grain, seed and silage storage in Washington County are part of the new exhibit, AgriCulture: Shaping Land and Lives in the Tualatin Valley. Her pensive black and white images invite the viewer into quiet moments she has encountered in her outings across Washington County to document silos with a Holga camera.

Visitors to this dynamic, colorful exhibit will be able to touch, hear, see and learn about agriculture and the many ways it impacts our communities. Since time immemorial people in the Tualatin Valley have used their labor and technology to maximize the amount of nourishing food and valuable plant products that grow in this fertile area. Those efforts have re-formed human habits and social structures as well as the physical landscape. This interactive exhibit centers on eight oral histories drawn from the museum’s archive housed within Pacific University’s digital exhibits. These individuals, some historic and some contemporary, speak to the field of agriculture through their personal experiences and the experiences of their families and ancestors. Together they become a dialogue across time, culture and technology that highlights many facets of agriculture’s impact on us all.

Along with photography, video, illustration, and an interactive drawing station, historic objects from the museum’s collection will be featured throughout the exhibit so that visitors can experience first-hand some of the tools that have helped shape the land around them.
