Terrific stories, thanks for sharing them. I can corroborate that PHAME is a wonderful organization and will change your life if you hear them! Ethan Dunham
I think you missed the real importance of this space as it was the home of one of Portlands' best art collectors, Ed Caurduro. He was among the first to start living in this industrial area and the tall ceilings and freight elevator were perfect for his art collection. Ivan McLean
This place would not even qualify as a decent hostel. The residents haven't any common space, there is no lounge of any kind, tiny kitchen on each floor for fifty people! No refrigeration or proper sinks to accommodate them adequately. The developer thru the greatest liar Shettler, lied and has lied continually, still advertising a tool library as of July 2011. Shettler is one of the worst people in the arts that I have encountered, horrible. I would hope that his hands would never be involved in any arts administration ever again. These are greedy selfish people using the arts to create Fairmount II, go look for yourself! FairmountI II. As for Peter Turner quoted above, he was in such a hurry to leave as many others, ask him too! And Kate Gibson, and many others of the dozen or so that left when lease time was up.
The pseudo galleries, one of your arts writers was trying to make into 4 or 5, have inadequate lighting and there is nothing of a decent paper document of post cards to show past works, and as a matter of fact, Milepost5 never joined the neighboring Montavilla art walk, or local chamber of commerce activities until 2011....COMMUNITY? The artists on the third floor did immediately in 2010, and were taken to task for organizing and publicizing with good graphics and public relations, something Shettler never did.
The art of writing. This might take a lot of creativity and imagination. I appreciate writers who have that.

Someone is a little butt-hurt, eh? ITS ART. Art is supposed to be uncomfortable, unnerving, and occasionally disturbing. Its not always pretty and happy, flowers and rainbows. I would suggest you broaden your horizons.. take a contemporary art class. You might actually begin to understand why people make art like this, or you might just get even more offended.
and to think I thought you might have taken your life several years ago - so where do all the prayers for your family go? wow! i am impressed with all you are doing and as your internet ad says i know you are definitely not gay- now I am curious to find out what Brian Cockrell is doing-Stacey from FLBC at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of these artists are indeed classics, has the writer ever actually read about Outsider Art?
The TAGS were not hung properly at that time, they were hung immediately for the remaining 2 month long show, so it has more to do with gallery organization then
And what about all the Portland Hipsters that have taken to copying Outsider Art as a style?
I went to the April 8th opening... the handful of dedicated, interesting artists living/working there are overwhelmed by the mediocrity of everything else.
Unless I'm just not seeing the genius of rocks with googly eyes, or splatter-painted white plastic masks, or old ballet shoes nailed to a board, or the endless monotony of badly-rendered manga.
Scrappers...I heard you criticize other art kind of harshly once .So I called your art crap.I would like to sincerely apologize for trying to "get your goat".Your contributions to the Mercury are awesome....in hindsight.The cake,your choice of artists for the covers,your own covers,the recent fish wave.....excellant!Forgive me for being a dick?Peace.
I've seen lots of actual childrens art though.Hire them and quit ripping them off.Kids could use some money too.
@Internet Narcistical Coconut Head: I still don`t get why the Lazers one had to die. Have u seen boobs_n_lazers.com?
Leaky.......done honestly would BE done by kids and THEIR perspectives.You get it?
Brilliant... keep it up. How about overworked pencil sketches of some guys girlfriend?
Mitch O'Connell's art career. Born in a tryst between Juxtapoz magazine's readership and Coop's merchandising success. A shameless parade of popular memes and calculated images (zombies, Bettie Page, 50's kitsch), he was a sort of WalMart Shag.
He's survived by millions of dollars worth of T-shirts and similar paraphernalia at Hot Topics and Urban Outfitters.
i would add owls also.
This is pretty hilarious. But I guess I now have to unfollow the Tumblr called Look At This Fucking Triangle: http://lookatthisfuckingtriangle.tumblr.co…. Oh well.
I still dig the "kid art done by adults", when done honestly. It always gives me a perspective of the adult world we live in. Or the semi adult world we live in, which is the case of this way of presenting to the world situations and/or ideas. "Kid art done by adults", I say, that it should go on and on and not get shot down nor hanged.
