Time to get mobile. I haven’t been to the Portland Art Museum for a very long time.

Last week the exhibit Richard Diebenkorn: Beginnings, 1942–1955 opened at PAM. It will be criminal if I miss this.

Another reason to go down to PDX is to see Eva Lake’s new work in an exhibit titled Through The Ages. More of her impeccable collage on paper opens at Augen Gallery July 5th.

I exhausted myself in the summer of 2013 driving down to the Bay Area. By the time I got to the DeYoung’s Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years 1953-1966 exhibit I was very sick, so not too much was said in the aftermath.

Sobering words to myself for that hard solo pilgrimage as I contemplate doing another.
