Need something to stretch those eyeballs of yours? Well you’re in for a treat. Check out Assembly at Nationale, one of Portland’s finest art/book/shop spaces run by May Barruel. With work by Delaney Allen, Amy Bernstein, Michelle Blade, Francesca Capone, Emily Counts, Carson Ellis, Ty Ennis, Jaik Faulk, John Gnorski, Lilian Martinez, William Matheson, Nathan Paul Rice, Annie Swiderski, Shohei Takasaki, Kate Towers, and Lindsey Cuenca Walker.
This month, Nationale is celebrating and honoring the countless real life connections that its Division space has fostered over the past five years before they move back to East Burnside in September. Assembly showcases the work of 16 artists and offers a curated selection of some gallery favorites. Please join Nationale for a month of community and celebration as they usher in a new era of Nationale. As a valued community member, this is your opportunity to support Nationale as they make this exciting transition.
In honor of IRL connections, Nationale has selected my chapbook, User Not Found (Future Tense Books) for their monthly Book Club.
