Transformations at Oxford

At Oxford Gallery, “Transformation” offers new work from three artists who are finding different ways to split the difference between representation and abstraction. In my favorite work from Phyllis Bryce Ely, the forms emerge under curls of heavy paint shaped like solidified candle smoke. Lately, and maybe for longer than I’m aware, she’s been laying […]

Staff Update from Arts Commission and Cultural Trust November 2018

November 2, 2018 Dear Arts and Culture Colleagues, It is with both great pride and some sadness that I share with you that Arts Commission and Cultural Trust Assistant Director David Huff has resigned effective next week to accept the new position of City Arts Manager with the City of Portland.

Meeting Bob Dylan and My Forrest Gump Life

I went out one night to a bar on MacDougal street to relax with a glass of vodka and my journal, a big black book filled with drawings and clippings pasted in. A tall handsome man with piercing blue eyes and a cap asked if he could sit down with me. My heart stopped beating in my chest and I lost my breath. It was the man who had written the sound track to my entire life—Bob Dylan.
