By Allyn Cantor

VENICE: THE GOLDEN AGE OF ART AND MUSIC Portland Art Museum, Portland, Feb 15 - May 11 Art and music flourished during the 16th to 18th centuries in the Venetian Republic, also known as La Serenissima, meaning “the most serene.” This significant cultural period was an important time for the development of modern music by innovative composers such as Monteverdi and Vivaldi. In this exhibit, paintings depicting the life and culture of the city by masters such as Titian, Tintoretto and Tiepolo are set in the context of historical drawings, prints, illuminated manuscripts, period instruments and early music texts.

TERRY TOEDTEMEIER: SKIES PDX Contemporary Art, Portland, Feb 4 - Mar 1 Terry Toedtemeier (1947–2008) was an Oregon photographer and curator known for his compelling renditions of Western landscapes and his contributions to Portland’s photography community. He captured the breathtaking beauty of his native state, from its coastal rock formations to its geological formations. This exhibit, focused on Toedtemeier’s sky images, shows the mystery characteristic of his oeuvre. Revealed here is his deep connection to place and awareness of the forces shaping the natural world.

CHRISTOPHER RAUSCHENBERG: STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY Elizabeth Leach Gallery, Portland, Jan 16 - Mar 8 In 2006, Christopher Rauschenberg began photographing the interiors of artists’ studios. For this series the Portland-based artist (known for his canny images from travels around the world) turned his camera on capturing the creative process and inner methods of various artists. The compelling pieces – focused on the random assortment of tools, objects and images that fill artists’ working environments – provide a glimpse into the everyday lives of many internationally known figures and noteworthy Portland artists.

I.M.N.D.N. — NATIVE ART FOR THE 21ST CENTURY The Art Gym at Marylhurst University, Marylhurst, Jan 13 - Feb 14 The work of seven Native artists from the U.S. Pacific Northwest and Canada is featured in this exhibition, highlighting how their heritage influences their practice in contemporary genres. Rick Bartow, Joe Feddersen, Hachivi Edgar Heap of Birds, Wendy Red Star, Nicholas Galanin, Peter Morin and Terrance Houle use a range of media and tactics to address such themes as identity, colonization, mythology and what it means to be a Native artist in the 21st century.

THREE STUDIES OF LUCIAN FREUD: FRANCIS BACON Portland Art Museum, Dec 21-Mar 30 Portraits of Lucian Freud by expressionist figurative painter Francis Bacon are the focus of this masterworks series at the Portland Art Museum. These three 1969 pieces show a full figure of the artist Lucian Freud – Bacon’s friend and rival – sitting on a chair, skewed in the space of a bright but spare yellow background. This psychologically charged triptych portrays the riveting distortion typical of what makes Bacon’s work dark, uncomfortable and emotionally powerful.
