West of center: America and the counterculture experiment. Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art exhibit. I went to the opening of this amazing exhibit of photos, flyers, costumes and architecture that was produced by counter cultural figures in the late 60s and early 70s.
“Stop asking questions! Manhattan Project!” Assemblage 2010. This piece was particularly difficult to photograph and show all the details. The title is what the lettering says. I read an Oppenheimer biography that led to this piece.
Arthur Tress, photography. Tress delivered a fantastic lecture tonight at U of O, his work is expansive and covers a huge range of styles and subjects. He said his idol was Picasso as a seventy-year-old artist who has refused to be pinned down to one style. He was funny, laid-back and obviously in possession of a rich and strange internal life. This man is my new spirit animal.
