Lately, it seems the public is totally obsessed by the apocalyptic-world ending-zombie attacking theme. Being a total 28 Days Later/Walking Dead fan (along with the rest of the world), we are totally fine with this trend. Some Portland galleries also took notice and went with the End of the World themes for their December shows (it being the final days of the world as we know it and all), including Old Town’s Compound Gallery. Their opening reception of End of the World—a show that explores what one’s imagination can conjure when faced with a possible end, or change, to the world they know—is tonight from 7-10pm.
With a lot of the show’s artists already having a “disconcerting edge” to their work, curator Molly Georgetta believes it will really set the show apart. Along with tonight’s exciting opening, Compound doesn’t plan to slow down in the upcoming months. January will feature a three person show with all local artists; February is a collaboration show with The Portland Mercury celebrating their new column “Portland as Fuck” with Portlandcentric art; March is a group show featuring amazing watercolor art from around the world.
