Recommended by Paige (Collections Manager): "Wesley Wehr was known for living and creating modestly. Legend has it, he would carry an entire exhibition's worth of artwork in a small briefcase and could be found drinking coffee in the U District with his briefcase in tow. But what his drawings and paintings lack in size they make up for in charm and detail. His imaginary figures are drawn so carefully, without any stray lines or second thoughts, as if he always knew how the figure would emerge from the paper. Although I would never have invented the same figure, it made perfect sense to me from the moment I saw it."

Recommended by Sam (Owner & Director): "Tennessee artist Ben Butler's Invention #51 from 2010 is an ink drawing which reflects his interest in volumes and the suggestion of a third dimension. This drawing is clearly connected to his wooden sculptures we exhibited in the past. Currently he is installing a commission for the PDX airport fabricated from douglas fir timbers reclaimed from Portland buildings."

"I am so captivated by Rob Connell's less-is-more, no-nonsense, it-is-what-it-is ink and gouache paintings. There is plenty of texture where there should be, plenty of contrast throughout, and nothing else to get in the way. His skies are often stark white, untouched and overexposed, while his windows are pitch black, completely concealing any interior. This piece has all of Connell's best features topped off with a uniquely pink building, speaking for the under-appreciated textures of our cities."
