By Allyn Cantor

TRAER SCOTT: NATURAL HISTORY Blue Sky Gallery, Portland, Jun 6-30 Using single-exposure photographs taken at natural history museums, Traer Scott creates allegorical narratives of our troubled co-existence with nature. In snapshot moments, Scott captures a poignant reality. In her images of still dioramas appear floating reflections of visitors, caught candidly in the glass that separates them from the natural history displays. The juxtaposition of the living present with the past life of taxidermied creatures makes for compelling tableaux. Scott, an award-winning photographer and author, is based in Providence, Rhode Island.

SOUNDFORGE Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland, May 16-Sep 21 This interactive multimedia exhibit is the result of a two-year collaboration between metalsmith Gabriel Craig and composer Michael Remson. Their installation explores forging metal as an act of both fabrication and percussion. Custom hand-carved wooden mallets “play” the massive gate-like steel sculptures in a manner similar to playing a xylophone. Remson created an original musical composition from the recorded sounds of Craig forging in the studio. This music plays along with a video of forging.

DANA LYNN LOUIS: DRAW Laura Russo Gallery, Portland, Jul 3-27 In the last decade, the work of Dana Lynn Louis has engaged architectural space in installations that use glass, light, shadow and other materials. Her nuanced pieces are inspired by timeless natural systems, the constructed world and the interconnectedness of these things. This new exhibit focuses on the temporal nature of the drawn line and how the process of drawing relates to life. Her subtle drawings have the same organic yet ephemeral quality of her floating installations.

MERRIDAWN DUCKLER AND GEORDIE DUCKLER: RITUAL, THE SHOW Blackfish Gallery, Portland, Jun 4-29 Merridawn Duckler is a writer and conceptual artist. For this show she and guest artist Geordie Duckler transform the Blackfish Gallery space into three separate ritual-meets-art activities that invite gallery visitors to participate. The proposed actions are a nod to the connection of art and ritual, a reflection on sincerity and an acknowledgement of ancient rituals that involve art. On June 26, the artists also host a performance and lecture at the exhibit.

CONSTANCE FOWLER: TRADITION AND TRANSITION Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Salem, May 11-Jul 21 Credited with starting the art department at Willamette University in 1935, Constance Fowler was a painter, printmaker and educator whose lengthy career followed the developments toward abstract art that dominated America after the 1950s. This exhibit explores her work from the 1930s to 1980s. Known early on for her expressive realism, Fowler’s work later transitioned into a personal variation of abstraction. Throughout her career, the Oregon Coast provided inspiration for her paintings as she merged realism and abstraction.
