Anka Gallery, 325 NW 6th Ave. Portland, Oregon, 97209

   Anka Gallery exhibits a group show in July featuring digital art by Nance Patemoster, sculpture by James Proctor, glass art by DonnaLaPlante, and paintings by Sarah Cosman and Julianna Paradisi. First Thursday Reception July 2nd 6pm-9pm.The show runs through July 30th.

   Julianna’s paintings in this exhibit explore the boundary between figurative and conceptual imagery by abbreviating her subject into ambiguous and sometimes dissolving forms. She asks the viewer, how much information is required for understanding? Painted on vellum, the translucency of the paper creates layers, which contribute to the metaphor of comprehension.
