What's Happening Around Portland

Doug Jeck
Angela White

Eutectic Gallery Presents Rubric :
October 4-26, 2019
Doug Jeck - Any β€˜rubric’ within a creative learning environment bursting with unbounded *Multistability, must, I believe, be exquisitely quixotic. *Multistability (or multistable perception) is a Gestalt theory principle: the tendency of ambiguous perceptual experiences to pop back and forth unstably between two or more alternative interpretations.

Also showing in the Back Room ...
Angela White - Her spartan and smooth porcelain forms chronicle life and interconnectivity using the ephermeral creations of local makers, hunters, and mothers - reverentially captured spider webs.
