Gregory Grenon
Local fixture Gregory Grenon returns with yet another exhibition of "vivid and expressionist portraits of women." His paintings, which are touted as "non-idealized" could be some of the most misogynistic art in the Northwest. Painted by Grenon, women look like spiteful, distorted animals rendered in pukish greens, and have titles like "No! Everything is Not Cool." I couldn't agree more. Laura Russo Gallery, 805 NW 21st Ave, 226-2754, Through May 1

* Entry Point
This mixed media group exhibition sports a fine looking sculpture by Roberta May Wong that features a long, braided ponytail stuck to a chopping block by a huge meat cleaver. Northview Gallery at PCC, 12000 SW 49th, 977-4264, Through April 22

* Music in Photography
The title of this show (the first in a series of three Newspace will feature in the ensuing months) is pretty self-explanatory. Catch David Scheinbaum's photographic tribute to hiphop, and Guardian photographer Chrissy Piper's glossy musician portraits. The Newspace Gallery & Studio, 1632 SE 10th, 963-1935, Through April 30

* One Piece at a Time
This "visual tribute" to the late Johnny Cash includes items from the private collection of Tara Cash. Shift, 625 NW Everett #101, Opens March 6. See My, What A Busy Week pg 15

* Red Trailer Motel
One highlight of any trip to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is Central Meridian, the "inventor's garage," a fascinating detailed replica of a dimly-lit workspace for an obsessive mind. The creator, Michael McMillen, comes to Portland this week in support of his hyperreal and mysterious installation Red Trailer Motel. On Saturday, the Los Angeles artist will give a free lecture at 7 pm in Reed's psychology auditorium. Cooley Gallery at Reed College, 3203 SE Woodstock, 777-7790, April 10- June 13
