November 6 Westside Art Openings+

Hellion has Dreams Within Dreams by APEK. We like, and have covered this husband and wife kwai-style illustration duo for some time. Also showing is In The Toy Box with Ikumi Nakada from Japan. Hellion is looking for a new location, ideally inner East side. They will continue in a temporary smaller space on the same floor beginning December until they find one. If you hear of something reasonable, let them know. At Hellion Gallery through the lobby of the arched brick entry, up the stairs and to the back. Very upper floor Japan-style. 19 NW 5th Suite 208. Map 7PM-10 Free

Corey Arnold is a photographer that catches fish for a living. And the reverse is true too. He spends some of the year in Portland, so he is a Portlander. Tonight he opens a new body of work, Wildlife, shot (with a camera) in Alaska. We will have to see how the Pebble Mine proposed upstream from a huge salmon fishery unfolds, or not. At Charles Hartman Fine Art 134 NW 8th

Reed professor Akihiko Miyoshi has Pigment Migrations & Suspended Refraction. They are photographs inspired by science. He is an artist and engineer. At UpFor Gallery 929 NW Flanders 6PM-9 Free
