VizArts Monthly: Myths and meteorites

For March, Jason N. Le introduces a variety of exhibitions that, from different vantage points, consider how humans make sense of our world. The options range from monsters to machines to meteorites.

VizArts Monthly: Paying attention

Commitment to New Year’s Resolutions may be waning but February’s art offerings remind us of the benefits of thoughtful attention and contemplation.

VizArts Monthly: Farewell 2023

December’s Visual Arts listings include a 7-foot print, suspended knots, and elephants. The end of the year may be upon us but there is still plenty to see before we bid farewell to 2023.

VizArts Monthly: Prints and strands

November sweeps in the wet and cold but there is plenty to relish in this month’s offerings. Jason N. Le introduces a vibrant array of art to encounter.

VizArts Monthly: Community and Abstraction

The delightful vagueness of the term abstract means that it is a perfect binder for many of October’s art offerings. Also this month, Portland Open Studios celebrates its 25th anniversary and the Sitka Art International celebrates its 29th year.

VizArts Monthly: Conversing and converging

Converge 45 brings a suite of compelling shows to Portland-area art spaces and there is plenty to see around the state as well. Jason N. Le has the intel on September’s art events.

VizArts Monthly: Personal perceptions

August’s selections of art exhibitions and events highlight artists sharing their vision of the world with viewers. The results cover everything from beach debris to John Travolta.

VizArts Monthly: Collaboration and community

Summer is here! Jason N. Le’s round-up of July shows features group shows, retrospectives, and solo exhibitions inspired by everything from the otherworldly to the intimately personal.

VizArts Monthly: Forward Motion

April pushes us further into spring and there’s plenty of art to see all over the state. VizArts Monthly has recommendations for everything from paintings to recycled fabrics to suspended plant matter.

VizArts Monthly: Visions of spring

March may be starting off with some residual snow but spring is around the corner and there’s plenty of art to see in the meantime. Jason N. Le has the highlights in VizArts Monthly.
