Working Classics

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday May 16
Goodfoot Lounge
2845 SE Stark St.
 
The two artists in this show are Portland icons, plain and simple. Jason Brown has curated visual-arts programming at the Goodfoot for the past 12 years and is one of those unassuming, under-the-radar types whose civic imprint is way bigger than his personal fingerprint. Then there’s Chris Haberman, who co-manages People’s Art of Portland with Brown. He’s been painting lovably cartoonish, text-laden portraits of Portland peeps for so long, his unique style has gone from irksomely ubiquitous to downright beloved. Both men share a dauntless work ethic and an undiluted love of all things Stumptown. They collaborated on the paintings in this show, which is themed loosely around the idea of the “working-class hero.” Through May 28.
