Last Chance: Portland Art Museum Biennial ends 10/8

You know you meant to go see it.  Right?  Well, you have less than two weeks to get the job done.  The Portland Art Museum’s 2006 Biennial ends 10/8.  The Biennial celebrates the present moment in Oregon’s art scene and confirms the Museum’s commitment to Oregon artists and ongoing support of their work. Begun in 1949 as an annual exhibition, the much broader Oregon Biennial now serves as a snapshot of the state’s current artistic influences and trends. This year’s Biennial features work by 34 established and emerging artists who vary widely in their mediums and aesthetics and span a multitude of genres and intentions. Selected from nearly 800 entrants, this exhibition brings to public attention an adventurous group of artists reflecting on Oregon’s changing atmosphere.
