First Thursday at Gallery 114 – Jon Gottshall
December 5, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us as we celebrate the opening of “16 Cranes”, a photographic essay by Jon Gottshall. The title of this exhibit is based on the number of industrial cranes set along the river from the Fremont Bridge to the mouth of the Willamette—the Portland Harbor. The show consists of landscape photographs of Portland’s most industrialized and polluted corridor, the last 10 miles of the Willamette River before it merges with the Mighty Columbia.
This work explores existential questions, relevant in this age of environmental crisis:
1. How will all of these issues, the man-made and the ecological, coexist in the future?
2. Can we remedy what the past has done while toxin-heavy industries continue to use the river today and for the foreseeable future?
