In The Work Continues, six Portland-based artists respond to the complexities of our existing social and political climate through the exploration of their own identities. Navigating a challenging climate potentially perpetuates a hyper-awareness regarding how we see ourselves in relation to others. Now, more than ever, there is an urgency for work that addresses identity awareness, shares points of view, and promotes dialog.

In these times of uncertainty and unrest, the artists have turned inward to a place of quiet introspection, creating works relating to their personal histories, vulnerabilities, and own sense of belonging in this world. When brought together, a larger comprehensive visual narrative culminates, resulting in self-portraiture of the emotional landscape that artists are navigating in 2018.
