David Slader
David Slader is an Oregon painter, digital artist, sculptor, and photographer. His youthful art ambitions were detoured by an almost forty-year career as a litigator, child-advocate, and attorney for survivors of sexual abuse. Although a Portland resident, David's studio is in the Coast Range foothills, along an oxbow of the Upper Nehalem River, where he alternates making art with efforts to reforest his land. In the Fall, a run of Chinook salmon spawn outside his studio door.

A monumental snore (with a wink)

What would happen if we turned grandiosity into a joke? Building big, artist Erik Geschke sculpts himself into the possibilities.

Derek Franklin: An artist in three acts

With his own small gallery in a shed, a show at Elizabeth Leach, and a key role in the Converge 45 biennial, the artist juggles “three ways I get to make magic out of dust.”

Four chords and a dark mirror

Leslie Peterson Sapp’s vivid collage-paintings reflecting the moods of Film Noir echo a long creative history of borrowing and revising in music and art.

Chefas Projects: Fresh with color & light

In Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District, a gallery features “graphic, color-drenched work by artists who have neither their fists nor their noses up in the air.”

Ukraine today: Art flowering in war

The trauma of invasion has a long history before Putin. Ukraine artists draw on it in remarkable ways, reaching back to the modernist movement of a century ago.

Farmers in the lumber room

The gallery’s painting and photography show “Inheritance” spotlights agricultural workers in Ghana and Black farmers in America.
