* Double Exposure
In what is undeniably Portland's most important photography exhibition in the past god-knows-how-many years, fourteen diptychs commissioned by Edition Schellmann are on view by some of the world's leading photographers. Vanessa Beecroft, Uta Barth, Olafur Eliasson, and Bill Jacobson are all included, as well as plenty other blue chippers who are spawning legions of imitators. Pulliam Deffenbaugh, 522 NW 12th Ave, 228-6665, Through June 26

* JunkTown
JunkTown is a loose collective of artists who disdain the pretentious gallery system (a shocking stance, I know), and who take their inspiration from folk art and other lowbrow sources. They are having a big one-night show this evening, so stop by and see what it looks like when a bunch of hipsters try to make outsider art. Judging from the few photos they sent us, they might actually be onto something. Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, Thursday, 7- closing, $1

* Revolving Summer Group Show
PDX kicks off their summer grab bag, which draws from their outstanding roster of Northwest and national artists. The summer shows are always fun because the gallery usually throws in one or two newer artists that they have their eyes on. PDX, 604 NW 12th Ave, 222-0063, Through July 3

* Targets and Trophies
Kim Hamblin and Ky Anderson team up for this two-person show exploring the relationship between hunters and the hunted. We're looking forward to Anderson's balsa-wood sculptures of hunter's trophies. Motel, NW Couch between 5th & 6th, Through June 26

Trish Grantham, Amy Ruppel, Michael Paulus
Amy Ruppel made some of the most charming and seductive work of last year's Oregon Biennial. Combining digital painting and collage with birch and beeswax, her works are easy on the eyes and technically accomplished. Check out some of her new paintings this month at Newspace. The Newspace Gallery & Studio, 1632 SE 10th, 963-1935
