AT THE GALLERY:
Friends of Gallery 114,
In an effort to "flatten the curve" and limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Gallery 114 has decided to close the physical gallery space through April. While we have been taking protective measures to keep our space disinfected and other recommended precautions given by the CDC, we now feel even greater measures must be taken to protect the Portland Community. Please join us in solitary during this critical time by staying home as much as possible. We look forward to bringing you online exhibitions starting in April and finding new ways of engaging with you through our online platforms.
March 2020–Don Bailey with guest artists Lillian Pitt & Annette Jackson.
Spirits Known and Unknown
Spirits Known and Unknown presents the work of Gallery member artist Don Bailey. a painter and mixed-media visual artist known for his complex, richly colored compositions. An enrolled member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe, Bailey was raised on the Hoopa Valley Reservation in Northern California.
Bailey samples the images of archival photographs and other artists’ work, and layers them with images of traditional native design and landscapes real and imagined. In doing so, he tells original stories that shake up (mis)understandings of (indian) art and history.
Bailey was featured on the Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) television show Art Beat and has work is in the collection of the Hallie Ford Museum (Salem, Oregon), the
collection of the Chemawa Indian School (Salem, Oregon), Riverfront Park (Salem, Oregon), RB Ravens Gallery (Taos, NM), and private collections.
In this show, Bailey is joined by fellow Native American guest artists Lillian Pitt and Annette Jackson. Using different media, and their individual perspectives, the three artists each worked alongside the spirits of their ancestors to create contemporary re-tellings of traditional stories and histories.
