  • Pop! Jean Cocteau c. 1937

Guns, guns, guns! Young people with guns, old people with guns, Cocteau with a gun...everybody's packin at the Charles Hartman Gallery this March, as part of GUN: A Collection of Photographs, which considers what it means to "pull the trigger," i.e. the similarities between shooting a picture and shooting a person. One could g'un forever with those puns, but...I won't. Charles A. Hartman Fine Art. 134 NW Eighth Ave, 5:30-8:30pm.

  • Akihiko Miyoshi

Other highlights of this week's first Thursday: Ben Buswell and Akihiko Miyoshi are at PDX Across the Hall, as part of the Portland Biennial. Miyoshi has some interesting abstract photos on display, whose process almost becomes sculptural; Buswell works with sculpture in a similarly conceptual way. PDX Across the Hall. 929 NW Flanders St. Open 'til 8pm.

We've already mentioned this, but it sounds like fun, so here it is again: PNCA's youth show exhibits dozen of drawings by Portland's itty bitty creatives. Look at the cheerful PDX landscape below, and tell me you don't want to see more. PNCA. 1241 NW Johnson St. 7-9 pm.

Lastly, up yonder at Archer Gallery at Clark College is The Infectious Corruption of Color, which exhibits photographs, paintings, and more by Laura Hughes, Calvin Ross Carl, and a few others. Archer Gallery. 1933 Fort Vancouver Way. Vancouver, WA. Open 'til 7pm.

First Friday has some goodies in store as well. In brief: YU lecture with LA-based photographer Shannon Ebner, James Papadopoulos at the Nationale. Avantika Bawa's About Framing, at Half/Dozen Gallery. And the White Box holds their reception for Notes on a Recent Arrival, which features work from several faculty members at the University of Oregon.
