I don't know art but I know what I like and there's nothing I like better than nothing. Noted nothingist, Olaf Gambini, travels to Portland to take in the art scene and local color at this month's First Thursday. He'll touchdown on NW Everett between 6th and 7th sometime after 7:00 PM. Reported he's interested in checking out Virtuoso Studios, Igloo Arts and Anka Gallery.
Curious onlookers are sure to get a good show. Especially if their tastes run towards the absurd.
From the press release:
Gambini was once a rising young star in the art world. He gained notoriety in the 1960s for his bold new approach to abstract expressionism, which he dubbed “nothingism”. But his budding career was cut short when in 1968 Andy Warhol was shot.
On Thursday, September 3rd, Gambini and his entourage will be attending Portland's next 1st Thursday, the monthly art gallery tour that takes place in Portland's Pearl district. This promises to be the best night to see Gambini in person…
