Details:The Pacific Northwest is home to a unique artistic ecosystem involving craft traditions, pre-industrial cultures, and Indigenous and settler histories. Like folk art, the works featured here are handmade, unpretentious, and often blur the line between functionality and aesthetics. For the artists—patchwork quilters and abstract painters alike—a rural and working class ethos of passed down knowledge and making do with what you have is as foundational as academics and studio technique. The exhibition features an intergenerational array of notable artists from throughout the region and a playlist selected by Portland’s Mississippi Records The works on view are handmade, unpretentious, and can blur the line between functionality and aesthetics. Immaculate woven baskets and tooled-wood objects mix with works that are makeshift, improvisational, and employ salvaged materials. For the artists—patchwork quilters and abstract painters alike—passed-down knowledge and a rural and working-class ethos of making do with what you have are as foundational as art history and studio technique. While hand making and materiality anchor most of the works in the exhibition, a few involve photography and video. Regardless of medium, the works meditate on the sense of place and identity engendered by small towns and rural communities in a digital and global era.
