Jul 27th 2019

Three Seeds Gallery is pleased to announce two new exhibitions opening on July 27th
Then by appointment until August 10th

Karah Lain and Brittany Walston

Rock Songs (for Susan)
Megan Finch


Karah Lain and Brittany Wilder both create from a space of constant flux, finding meaning in-between spaces of fragmentation and wholeness, attachment and detachment. Through collage and photography, these two artists use improvisation, repetition, and the seemingly mundane—both made and found—to process the act of connection to their worlds. Make/Shift accounts for the provisionally of everyday connections, moments felt and documented—but never quite grasped.

The exhibition Make/Shift re-iterates ideas of provisionality by spreading and oozing out into discreet, public spaces in the artists’ hometown of Portland, Oregon. While the body of work that is cohesively present at Three Seeds Gallery offers a grounding point for this exhibition, the fragmentation and slipperiness of their ideas are repeated in the fragmentary locations of the exhibited works.
A single viewer in either city will likely not see all the works, which mirrors the artists own futile attempts to know, document, and save something. Works are present in the following locations: Three Seeds Gallery – Chicago, Illinois; Hungry Tiger Bar – Portland, Oregon; Multnomah Public Library – Portland, Oregon; Powell Butte Park – Portland, Oregon.

Rock Songs (for Susan)

Raised in the Pacific Northwest, based in Chicago, Megan Finch is a multimedia artist who explores issues of beauty, memory, and autobiography through the lens of the landscape. Her work is inspired by Bob Ross, poetry, religion, bad TV, “The Great American West”, and blue collar labor. Watching the sun set on an industrial skyline, reminded of the mountains of home, Finch assembles her own Americana for the viewer: each piece a sense-memory, a glimpse around a corner, a point on an emotional map.
