Open This End: Contemporary Art from the Collection of Blake Byrne

An exhibition of both iconic and lesser-known works from 38 of the most influential artists of the last 50 years will run Sept. 8-Dec. 11 at the Hoffman Gallery at Lewis & Clark College.

Titled “Open This End: Contemporary Art from the Collection of Blake Byrne” will trace a number of intertwined narratives in the history of recent art, from the 1960s to the present.

The exhibition’s title comes from a 1962 painting by Andy Warhol, the earliest work in the show. A panel discussion and reception will be held at 4 p.m. Sept. 25 in the Alumni Circle on the Lewis & Clark campus, located at 0615 S.W. Palatine Hill Road in Portland. Panelists include Jane Beebe, director of PDX Contemporary Art; Blake Byrne, founder of the Skylark Foundation; Bob Rennie, principal of the Rennie Collection; and Jordan Schnitzer, found of Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation.

Exhibit curator Joseph R. Wolin will deliver a lecture titled “Open This End (Towards a Semiotics of Curating)” at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 in Miller Room 105 on campus.

Regular gallery hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The gallery is free and open to the public. On weekends, it is free to park on the Lewis & Clark campus.
