Carnaval

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday July 27
Mark Woolley Gallery @ Pioneer
700 SW 5th Ave., 3rd floor, Pioneer Place Mall
 
Bright, colorful, full of heat and passion—that sums up the artwork showcased in Mark Woolley’s summer group show, Carnaval. With its Portuguese spelling, the show’s title references the (in)famous Brazilian street party known for samba parades, outrageous costumes and decadent behavior. Participating artists share a common love of bold color palettes, in many cases inspired by Latin American folk art. Among these artists are Gregory Grenon, Mary Josephson, Tom Cramer, Brigitte Dortmund and Kayla Newell. Gallerygoers who attend the Third Saturday opening (5-9 pm July 20) are encouraged to wear their most colorful and festive attire. Carnaval partners with the gallery’s next-door neighbor, Peoples Art of Portland, whose own exhibition, Carnival (note the English spelling), takes its theme from the phenomenon of the American circus. July 20-Aug. 11.
