Bridge [030306]
An exciting mixed-media (projections/sculpture/painting) exploration of sex, law, violence, and religion with one of those dazzlingly pretentious titles that can only be found in the world of visual arts. Genuine Imitation Gallery, 328 NW Broadway #116, 234-3760, Through Mar 31

Delinquent Subculture
Aimee Wilson's 17-panel series of acrylic/epoxy resin on canvas is a tribute to the victims of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Fucked up? Yes. Will you go? You know you will. Nocturnal, 1800 E Burnside, 239-5900

Donut Shop Seven
Five artists--Cris Moss, Alois Kronschlaeger, Bentley Spang, Frantiska and Tim Gilman, and John Harris--have created a multimedia extravaganza around the theme, "what is reality and how does it fit into art?" Philip Feldman Gallery & Project Room, at PNCA, 1241 NW Johnson, 226-4391, Through April 23

Gary Mac Smith's paintings of faces come from his unmediated psyche. The Portland psychiatrist used low-viscosity acrylic on watercolor paper, while presumably channeling his inner self. The result is pretty creepy. Littman and White Galleries Portland State University, Smith Center, 1825 SW Broadway, 725-5656, Through Mar 28

The Wall Splotch Series
Troy Klebey has photographed random walls at various angles and under various kinds of lighting. The results look like amazing abstract paintings. Very cool. Pushdot Studio, 833 NW 14th, 224-5925, Through Mar 31

Christy Nyboer's installation/performance examines the process of creating art, as opposed to art itself. You will find her locked inside a space with a video, and you will have the opportunity to interact with her by dropping notes in a slot. Portland Building Lobby, 1120 SW 5th, RACC contact: 823-5426, Through April 4

Mr. Popolo
Mr. Popolo's exhibit consists of a single, enormous, 20-feet wide abstract painting created via knife work in acrylic. Inspired by the artist's recent trip to Florida, the work will flash sea shell colors through the Basement's dim, smoky haze. Basement Pub, 1028 SE 12th, 231-6068, Through Mar 31
