Carrie Mae Weems at the Portland Art Museum

I captured a few images at the opening of the Carrie Mae Weems mid-career retrospective at the Portland Art Museum. Activities included an opportunity to view the exhibition and reception in the museum’s nearby Mark Building. Later in the evening, I attended an intimate reception hosted by Jack Shainman, owner of Carrie Mae’s New York art gallery. Carrie Mae is originally from Portland. She and I first met in the early 1980s, when we were graduate students at the University of California, San Diego.
