Contemporary Northwest Art Awards

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday November 19
Portland Art Museum
1219 SW Park Ave.
 
Expansive, thoughtful and dramatically installed, the biannual Contemporary Northwest Art Awards didn’t disappoint this year. Curator Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson has created a spectacular survey of artwork across a diverse field of practices, filling—but not overfilling—a generous exhibition space with work by artists from Oregon (Karl Burkheimer), Washington (Isaac Layman, Nicholas Nyland and the single-monikered artist known as Trimpin), Montana (Anne Appleby) and Wyoming (Abbie Miller). As heterogeneous as these artists’ works are, somehow Laing-Malcolmson makes them cohere spatially and thematically. At the show’s opening gala, Trimpin took home the $10,000 Arlene Schnitzer Prize. Through Jan. 12.
