Haze Gallery Opening Saturday June 5th

Hazegallery.com Way out in St. Johns (! carpool) Bruce Conkle appropriates weird and wonderful aspects of the Northwest environment to create works like the Sasquatch Feng Shui living room and repurposed video game landscapes. See his work in New York, London and Reykjavík, or this show in Portland! 7-10ish free postscript: the Haze closed, the curator went on a sailboat trip, was in the Indian Ocean when the Tsunami hit, survived and now is in LA. His assistant is in art history/theory at the Claremont Colleges

Pacific Switchboard a DIY-style exhibition space has great openings with a great crowd of artists, musicians and creative people!
Corner of N. Albina and Blandena
"Dear friends of Pacific Switchboard,
Perhaps some of you have already heard that JUNE IS THE LAST MONTH of
Pacific Switchboard’s art space as we currently know it. At the end of June
our lease is up, and our existence is changing. Renovations and structural
changes happen in July, and in August, PS will re-open as part of a shared
space, which we will no longer fully control. This means a lot of
interesting things, but for now what it means is that all of you are
expected to COME HANG OUT IN THIS SPACE WITH US WHILE IT IS STILL OURS!
And also, stay tuned for word on our closing party…
