Jessica Jackson Hutchins is one of few Portland artists with an international profile (She currently lives in Berlin with her partner, Pavement's Stephen Malmus). Here, Hutchins exhibits a pair of her rough-hewn, domesticity-focused assemblages as part of Fourteen30 Contemporary's 2 Weeks/2 Works series.

The gallery will host a closing reception on February 3 from 12 pm to 2 pm

saw this in SF, did not know of it before...
This retrospective offers a revelatory, in-depth encounter with the work of Jay DeFeo (1929-1989), one of the most important and innovative artists of her generation, but one who until now has not been given her due. A quintessential San Francisco artist who rose to national prominence, DeFeo was at the center of a vibrant community of Bay Area artists, poets, and musicians in the 1950s. Although she is best known for her massive, visionary masterpiece The Rose (1958-66), DeFeo created an astoundingly diverse range of works; her unconventional approach to materials and her intensive, physical process make her a unique figure in postwar American art. Presenting close to 130 works, including collages, drawings, paintings, photographs, small sculptures, and jewelry, this definitive exhibition traces DeFeo's distinctive vision across more than four decades of art making.
