Portland Area Art Events

Photographer Robert Lyons' recent series, One Eye Crying, features color photographs of Northampton, Massachusetts, a location of art historical and personal significance for the artist. The portraits and landscapes of this American town feel at once familiar and exotic when viewed through Lyons' lens. A quiet sense discovery resonates throughout the series.

Matthew Picton continues to create intricately detailed three-dimensional aerial maps in his upcoming exhibition titled El Dorado. The six new artworks feature cartographic maps layered with historical text, imagery and cultural ephemera related to significant sites throughout Europe, South America and Africa, illuminating periods of societal and cultural upheaval within each country's history.
