Portland's newest art gallery, Eutectic, is opening this Friday (6 pm) with its first show, Kelly Garrett Rathbone's "Lost Mariposas." An outlier in the west side-dominated Portland gallery world, it's located at 1930 NE Oregon, just a couple blocks north of Sandy (and spitting distance from the Mercury's former offices), and it specifically aims to showcase contemporary ceramics exclusively. Rathbone's setting the tone with a display of work that's leaps and bounds away from a roomful of minimalist vases, though, to say the least. More like this please:
