Renowned Wall Street Journal art critic Peter Plagens visited Portland and left impressed by the city’s burgeoning scene. Plagens was particularly taken with the Lewis & Clark senior art exhibition, which he called “the strongest undergraduate exhibition I’ve seen in a long time.”

Selected works from the show:

The Senior Art Exhibition ends Sunday, May 6; gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 503-768-7687 or visit the Hoffman Gallery’s website.

Plagans also highlighted 12128, a decommissioned crabbing boat that boasts a 30-square-foot on-deck exhibition space. The unusual gallery space, which Willamette Week called a “creative incubator,” is owned by Zoë Clark, Lewis Feuer, Kyle Thompson, and Caitlin Ducey—all members of the Class of 2009. Thompson is also an adjunct member of the Lewis & Clark chemistry faculty.
