On view May 28th – July 1st

For House of Sound, his first solo photography exhibition at Stumptown Coffee Roaster’s Downtown space, Chris Bennett spent time in record stores, vintage stereo repair shops, vintage retail shops and people’s houses, photographing and having conversations about why they listen to music the way they do. From Portland to Seattle, New York and Berlin, Germany, the love, passion and obsession for music and listening is a common thread that runs through all of the people and shops, connecting us all together to the moment we first felt the sound.

Artist’s Statement:

When I was 10, a family friend who lived down the street gave me my first record, KISS Alive II (gatefold double vinyl no less!). The memory of that record being given to me, and the first time I listened to it on my mom’s record player, will always be with me. The album was already well loved, the years of playing coming out in pops and crackles when I placed the needle on the record. As the opening song, Detroit Rock City, began, I opened the gatefold to see a full panoramic image of a giant stage, pyrotechnic flames and sparks erupting behind the swaggering figures of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley. I envisioned myself there, right up at that stage and felt the heat and the rush of the loud music.

With Figure Studies, K. Scott Rawls returns to Stumptown Coffee Roasters’ Downtown space for his third solo exhibition. This new body of work is about utilizing classic motifs and contemporary materials. Rawls’ surfaces and paint are both plastic, repelling each other, fighting for a footing, clinging at last.

Violet_Aveline_1_2014
On view Friday, April 4th – May 28th
Opening Reception Sunday, April 13th 4-6 pm

Violet Aveline was raised in Indiana and went to the Herron school of witchcraft and wizardry. She became a member of Ghastly Cave where she dissected the innards of many ghouls and monsters. Having become acquainted with all the fiends there were to see she moved to Detroit and helped to open up another silkscreen studio. This pattern continued to happen in Portland Oregon where the wealth of demonic delights have yet to be exhausted. References for these works include but are not limited to: Neo Rauch, Raymond Pettibon, Matt Brinkman, Skinner, Wolfeyes, Liars, Arab on Radar, Sammy Terry, Vincent Price, H.P. Lovecraft, Boris Karloff, Mark Twain, and many more. Each painting is a story whether it is widely known or a secret whispered in the dark. Some are parts of famous myths and some are new myths from newspapers. All of them are lies told as truths to help us sleep at night. “When we die we all look the same. Death is the great equalizer.” For more information, please contact Wendy Swartz (wendy@stumptowncoffee.com) Belmont Stumptown 3356 SE Belmont Street
