* Bibliocosmos
This amazing group show, curated from Reed's extensive collection of artist's books, could change the way you think about the medium. Albums of Third Reich-commissioned stereoscopes are on view, video interpretations of Ulysses, and a rare copy of the first ever graphic novel. Cooley Gallery at Reed College, 3203 SE Woodstock, 777-7790, Through Oct 5

* Hay Days-Texas Punk Pix 80-84
Twenty years ago, before he was the local film and video guru he is now, Bill Daniels was checking out punk shows by Black Flag, Minor Threat, and the Butthole Surfers in shitty clubs and living rooms in Texas. Feeling like a non-musical poseur, he photographed everything and as a result, has an amazing photo history of early punk from the Reagan era. Beulahland, 118 NE 28th Ave, 235-2794, Through Sept. 22

Joseph Biel
Biel's figurative drawings and prints bring to mind whittled-down Mad Magazine illustrations with existential twists. Like Marcel Dzama, Biel's neurotic line drawings hint at tortured souls beneath cartoon facades. Mark Woolley Gallery, 120 NW 9th Suite 210, 224-5475, Through Sept. 27

Kevin Fletcher
After a dormant summer, the Feldman Gallery returns with an exhibition of monoprints by California artist Kevin Fletcher. His monochromatic industrial scenes convey a deep, inky tonal range and mysterious mise-en-scene. Philip Feldman Gallery & Project Room, at PNCA, 1241 NW Johnson, 226-4391, Through Oct. 31

* Susan Rothenberg
One of the country's most important expressionist painters, Susan Rothenberg became famous by painting with decidedly un-ladylike bravado (and perhaps, as some have suggested, for marrying Bruce Nauman). In either case, her forceful mark-making demands attention, as does her interplay between figuration and abstraction. Elizabeth Leach Gallery, 207 SW Pine St, 224-0521, Through Sept. 27
