large_last-thursdayLast Thursday 2014

Last Thursday on Alberta Street happens year round with Alberta Street galleries hosting new shows. May – September, Alberta Street is closed to automobile traffic between NE 15th – 30th Avenues from 6 – 9PM.

As might be obvious from it’s name – Last Thursday takes place on the Last Thursday of each month.

Chad Stover in Mayor Charlie Hales’ office is the logistics coordinator for the 2014 summer events. Below is some basic information about the event. Please contact Chad Stover if you have additional questions. Phone: (503) 823-4027 Email: chad.stover@portlandoregon.gov

Visitors:  Thank you for visiting Alberta Street! Last Thursday can be a great way to check out our community.  You can do a few simple things to make the event a success.

  1. Ride your bike or take public transportation to Alberta Street. The event takes place in a residential neighborhood business district and parking is limited. If you must drive, please don’t block resident driveways.
  2. Pick up after yourself and sometimes others! The impact of sometimes as many as 20,000 people on our street in the course of 3 hours is significant. You can help by making sure you use garbage and recycling stations provided and if you see someone else did not, we’d appreciate your help picking up after them!
  3. Have fun, enjoy our street, the art and our businesses and be a responsible human being! If you drink, drink responsibly in our licensed establishments , open containers in the public right of way is prohibited. If you need to use the restroom, use a portopotty or restroom in one of our businesses.

2014 Changes to Last Thursday

  • The event will end at 9PM (the street opening will begin at 15th, it will likely be closer to 10PM by the time the street is open at 30th)
  • Police will strictly enforce open-container drinking in the right of way, as well as marijuana use. Neither was enforced strictly in the past.
  • The noise office and police will work to bring street musicians within compliance of the city’s noise code.
  • The city will look for ways to cover the extraordinary costs borne by taxpayers. Possibilities include applying fees to restaurants and bars that are open during the event, food vendors in the street, artists and performers.

Last Thursday Art Opening: Rose Dickson + Scapegoat Tattoo @ Living Room Realty
Jul 31 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Presented by Brokers Chandra Ashford and Gavin Shettler
Light refreshments provided
1401 NE Alberta

About the Artist: Rose Dickson
503.756.1424/rdickson@risd.edu/www.rosedickson.com

Rose Dickson lives and works in Portland, Oregon. She completed her BFA in Photography from Rhode Island School of Design in 2012. During her time at RISD, she studied at Speos International Photography School in Paris, France and participated in RISD’s European Honors Program in Rome, Italy. Since graduation, Rose spent four months as an artist in residence at Taidelaitos Haihatus in Joutsa, Finland. This Fall Rose looks forward to participating as a resident artist at Organhaus, Chongqing, China for 3 months and for 2 months at Studio Kura, Fukuoka Japan.
Expressed through a variety of media—photography, sculpture, video and poetry—her work explores the dichotomy of presence and absence, material and immaterial. The experiential quality of her work invites viewers to participate within the search. Upon view, an intersection of art, artist and spectator is created, turning these distinct perspectives momentarily indistinct. Her work is in the collection of Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Museum of American History.

Building a Raft, 2013
video installation, 15 min loop
A room drowned in expansive water. Building a Raft is a looped video transitioning from a seascape to artist studio. Water builds up and masks the perceptual boundaries of the space, while the artist paints over and over the walls, attempting to reclaim her studio.
Building a Raft was shot in Rose’s studio during her time as a resident artist at Taidelaitos Haihatus in Joutsa, Finland. The water imagery was recorded at a nearby lake where Rose spent most of the daylight hours, over her four-month stay, watching.

About the Artist: Brian T. Wilson
