New System Exhibitions
Portland-based artists Franklin Ahrens, Henry Austin, Isaac Jaegerman, Alice Jones, Hector Magaña, and Cody Stack have established New System Exhibitions (NSE), a 1,500 sq. ft. studio space to exhibit contemporary art by emerging artists. NSE plans to present exhibitions showcasing local and regional emerging talent. Between shows, NSE will facilitate open community critiques, public artist talks, performances, and serve as active studio space for the six founders. NSE strives to initiate creative dialogue among artists and highlight the vitality of emerging artists in a larger creative community and in the social fabric of our city and state. Support from the Kindling Fund will allow NSE to present three exhibitions in the spring of 2019, giving the organization momentum into the new year.
