If you live in the Portland area, you might want to check out the window display at PDX Contemporary Art (925 NW Flanders). Bill Dean, assemblage artist, has the entire window for several of his "vintage" (and whimsical) assemblage pieces. I think they will be on display for the entire month of November. I took a few photos while visiting the window this afternoon...not the best photos, unfortunately, with all the reflection from the glass:
Bill and I were in a group show two years ago at the Annie Meyer Art Gallery, and will be meeting once again for a "two man assemblage show" next October at Gallery 6 PDX...more on that later!
