Exhibit explores concepts of home, memory
Photos and Story by James Hill
An exhibit of photographs paired with patterned decorative wallpaper is coming to Portland Community College.
Kim Manchester’s “Object Place,” will be on display from Thursday, Sept. 27, through Nov. 2 at the Northview Gallery. The gallery is in Room 214 of the CT Building at the Sylvania Campus, 12000 S.W. 49th Ave.
“Object Place” is an exhibition of two separate pieces, both variations on the themes of “memory” and “home.” Manchester explores how both the random objects left by those who have passed and the empty space of the vacant house echo with histories of one’s self.
“It is this atmosphere that one experiences standing in a room left vacant after a move – the warmth of the afternoon sun filtering in through windows, illuminating the dust both in the air and on the floor,” Manchester said.
In addition to the show, there will be an opening reception and artist talk at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, in Room 212 of the CT Building. The Northview Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, contact Gene Flores, gallery director, at (503) 977-8315.
