Alex Harris
Co-founder of Doubletake magazine Alex Harris is also a renowned documentary photographer whose signature style involves shooting landscapes through the dashboards of automobiles. In the Southwest, he photographed Tucson landscapes from lowriders, and Blue Sky has his series of Havana seen from the passenger seat of weathered old American cars. Blue Sky Photography Gallery, 1231 NW Hoyt St, 225-0210, Through September

* Genometrics (Tribryd Pt.1)
After one year of presenting the most sophisticated and handsome exhibitions of all the Everett Station galleries, Soundvision is bowing out due to--big surprise--economic factors. Following impressive showings at The Best Coast and The Modern Zoo, owner TJ Norris is rededicating himself to art making, as witnessed by his farewell show, Genometrics, the first of a three-part collaboration with experimental sound artists. Soundvision, 625 NW Everett #108, 238-7007, Through Oct. 18

* Nick Blosser
Blosser's muted tempera paintings are deceptively innocuous, but close inspection reveals wonderful energy, charming sensibility, and mastery of the earthy end of the color spectrum. PDX, 604 NW 12th Ave, 222-0063, Through October 4

* Untitled Show (Schnitzer Atrium)
This show, mostly of contemporary painting, doesn't register a blip on PAM's radar--they didn't even give the show a title--but it's an amazing group exhibition, with exemplary works by Gerhard Richter, Tony Scharf, Yek, and many others. Portland Art Museum, 1219 SW Park Ave, 226-2811
