Ceci n'est pas un Vernissage

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday February 14
Chambers @ 916
916 NW Flanders St.
 
A fitting end (almost) to Chambers’ eight-year history as one of Portland’s leading galleries, Ceci n’est pas un Vernissage showcases artwork by Chambers’ founder, director and assistant. Wid Chambers’ 8-foot-tall circular sculpture highlights the artist/founder’s gift for large-scale statements, as does director Martha Morgan’s sugar-tablet model for what was originally a 17-foot-high cylindrical sculpture. Finally, assistant Heather Lee Birdsong’s etchings have a knack for impeccable geometry laid out in assured compositions. Chambers will mount one final show of works by painter Blakely Dadson before closing its doors at the end of the month. Morgan is reportedly scoping out locations for a gallery to continue Chambers’ mission, although details have yet to be fleshed out. Through Feb. 16.

Where: Chambers @ 916
