Amy Arbus!

Newspace welcomes renowned portrait photographer Amy Arbus to Portland! Amy will be teaching an intensive workshop starting on Friday, September 6th. Amy will be giving a free public lecture at Newspace on September 7th at 7pm. Join us!

Artist in Residence Lecture Saturday at 1pm

Newspace is delighted to have our August Artist in Residence, Maureen Drennan, give a public lecture on Saturday, August 24 from 1-2pm

Maureen will speak about her latest series, Broad Channel, in which she documents the island community of Jamaica Bay, Queens. Its proximity to the ocean makes it particularly vulnerable to storms, tides, and changing weather patterns; a reality that became more notable when Hurricane Sandy devastated the community in late 2012. Maureen’s images intimately portray a community on the fringes – environmentally, geographically, and economically – yet whose ‘fringed’ existence became more visible when their vulnerability became more than a notion.

Maureen will also share her most recent images, made in Portland during her residency. Please join us for this engaging presentation!

 

 

Newspace closed on Labor Day

We will be closed to observe Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 2. This is also the final week to see Henry Horenstein’s work in the gallery. Celebrate your long weekend by coming in to see us! New show opens on Friday, Sept 6.

August Artist in Residence

Newspace is delighted to welcome Maureen Drennan as our August Artist in Residence! We have had the honor of showing Maureen’s work in our gallery back in 2011, as part of a two-person show, and we are very excited to see what she is working on currently. Maureen will give a lecture on her work and process on August 24th at 1pm. The lecture is free and open to the public.
