Eirik Johnson will be giving a talk at the Henry Art Gallery this evening from 7 - 8:30. The talk is in conjunction with his current exhibit, Sawdust Mountain.

"The culmination of four years’ photographing throughout Oregon, Washington, and Northern California, Sawdust Mountain showcases the strained relationship between industries that rely on natural resources and the communities they impacted."

And then don't forget about the Henry's Open House tomorrow. We'll get our first official glimpse into the Matthew Offenbacher and Friends project, The Gift Shop. In its first (of six) incarnation, Jenny Zwick and Joe Park offer us this preview:
