Becoming Blackfish

RICHARD SPEER
Friday January 17
Blackfish Gallery
420 NW 9th Ave.
 
It’s easy to take Blackfish for granted. It’s been around since 1979, and its programming is reliably unreliable; some shows soar, others go kerplunk. But the 35th anniversary exhibition Becoming Blackfish invites us to take a fresh look at this artist co-op, showcasing works by 22 of the gallery’s founding and forming members. Highlights include Julia Fish’s Study for Living Rooms: SouthEast One With SouthEast Two, an elegant rectilinear study in sienna ink. Judy Cooke’s Corner has a similar architectonic élan, its straight black lines a counterpoint to the wooden piece’s natural grain. And Arvie Smith’s gloriously garish vaudevillian portrait, Mr. Kicks, reminds us just how delightful and important an artist Smith is. Congrats to Blackfish on 35 years, and here’s to 35 more. Through Feb. 1.
