Bean Finnerman
Finnerman's humorous, colorful, and intimate ceramic nesting bundles are completely charming, but the cramped PDX Gallery doesn't give them much room to show off how funky they truly are. PDX, 604 NW 12th Ave, 222-0063, Through August 8

* Canvas: Art on Skateboards by Skateboarders
A title that pretty much says it all, except that the artists featured at this installation include, in addition to skateboarders, team managers, board artists and designers, legends like Tim Kerr and John Lucero. Department of Skateboarding, 15 NE Hancock, 493-9480, through August

* Modern Zoo
The Zoo is still open, and if you haven't had a chance to see the second round of exhibits, cruise up Lombard and be sure to see the excellent installation by Jack Dingo Ryan and Greg Pond. Their show was curated by local artist Melody Owen, whose hummingbird feeder piece is also one of the strongest showings out there. Portland Center for the Advancement of Culture, 6635 N Baltimore, 503-481-7450, Fri-Sun 12-8, Through August, $2-10 suggested donation

Norman Rockwell and the Art of Medicine
You gonna try to tell me that PAM ain't with it? Who else in town would show a Norman Rockwell exhibition sponsored by the pharmaceutical corporation who commissioned the paintings in the first place? We've got to say that the paintings are a lot sweeter in person than they are in reproduction, though. But still.... Portland Art Museum, 1219 SW Park Ave, 226-2811, Through Sept. 21, $6-10

* Twitch/Tremble/Tense
While on sabbatical in Australia, Kristy Edmunds, director of PICA, made a shimmering series of delicate monoprints, as well as photographs and a video. Though recent, the work is heavily infused with a sense of longing and nostalgia. Elizabeth Leach Gallery, 207 SW Pine St, 224-0521, Through August 30
