The Nisus Gallery and Disjecta are a source of inspiration even when it’s something simple like walking past the building as part of my nightly dog walk routine. Sometimes I think about what’s going on inside, big ideas, ideas I’m not sure I understand but I appreciate or just the thought of having the opportunity to see the improvements to the building and the Disjecta mission evolve and grow over the last five years. As the Executive Director of Disjecta Bryan Suereth said recently while welcoming people to a free event, “you won’t see art anywhere like it in Portland.”
I’m used to checking out the goings on in the Nisus Gallery which shares space with Disjecta. I’ve seen artists hanging shows but this week I was surprised to see the artist creating art for the show on one of the walls. My dog Max stop to sniff long enough to let me snap a photo. The preparation was being done for a show called Gotta Make Money to Make Money which will be on display at Nisus Gallery from November 21, 2014 to January 16, 2015. There is an opening reception Friday, November 21 from 6pm to 9pm. The Nisus Gallery is located at 8371 N Interstate, Studio 1, Portland, OR 97217. The Gallery is open Friday through Sunday, 12:00 to 5:00 pm and by appointment.
