Business Minded
The new show at Renowned features "paintings, drawings, and other mediums... on an assortment of found business cards." Silly, curator-concept shows like this were all the rage in Portland about two years ago, and I've taken it as a sign of our collective maturity that we've stopped putting on these bits of inanity in favor of giving artists the room and forums to make the art they need to create—not Etch a Sketch doodles or paintings on business cards. Come on, Renowned. Let's get back on track with a solid show of good work next month, yeah? Renowned, 811 E Burnside #111, 714-642-8009, through April 1

Dish
It began and ends with a feast, with an art show in the middle. Daniel Duford created 50 handmade pots, each bearing a panel from his graphic novel, which were eaten from at a big party at ripe several months ago. The pots are on view through mid-April, when another big feast will close the show. Philip Feldman Gallery, PNCA, 1241 NW Johnson, 226-4391, through April 15

Moon Babies
Zak Margolis, member of the erstwhile Pacific Switchboard art group, returns with a suite of narratives about a pair of twins, the universe, and a wolf, all told in black ink and paint. Valentine's, 232 SW Ankeny, 248-1600, through March 31

Stash and Sense
We've all seen the photos of the 1980s New York subway cars, completely bombed out in graffiti, every square inch of their surface Kryloned by guerilla taggers. But who was the first person to completely cover an entire subway train? Conventional wisdom has it that it was Stash, who is now a major player in New York's urban clothing scene. Japanese artist Sense creates everything from abstract wall drawings to squishy toys. Compound, 107 NW 5th, through March 31
