The Portland Art Museum is hosting a talk by the architect of the new Japanese Garden pavilions. Unfortunately tickets sold out very quickly. Kengo Kuma speaks on Tsunagu, his Architecture of Relationships. The show of architectural drawings, models and materials at the AIA would make a good complement to the talk; the Portland Art Museum often posts videos of their talks on their YouTube channel. At the Portland Art Museum Whitsell Auditorium 1219 SW Park 2PM Sold Out

Mamie Deschillie and Sally M Mulda have their first show together. They are each self taught artists. Mamie Deschillie is Navaho and grew up on the Navaho Nation land. Sally M Mulda is an aboriginal Australian of the Luritja Yankuntjatjara who grew up in Alice Springs. Both first peoples. DJ Hisham Mayet (Sublime Frequencies) provides music for the opening.
Mamie Deschillie began her art work in her 60s and worked until she passed at age 90. Sally M Mulda also came to art as a mature adult.
The PMOMA web site has a great description.
PMOMA is a small gallery in the basement of a vinyl music store which flies under the radar. But they consistently show stellar work in the folk art and self-taught artist realms. Their openings are lively and conversational, or you can stop by anytime the vinyl music store is open. Highly recommended.
