Chefas Projects presents In Plain Sight, a two-person exhibition of new works by Nathan McKee and Ryan Bubnis. Through meticulous paper cutouts and energetic paintings, both artists continue their exciting use of color, shape, and composition to create playful and layered images, many of which draw from personal memories and the hidden treasures of everyday life. 

What things are seen all the time, but often overlooked or taken for granted? The spread of dishes set out for our morning breakfast, the buildings we pass on a daily commute, the coming and going of birds in the backyard. In Plain Sight asks us to pay closer attention to these familiar visuals, invoking a sense of renewed appreciation and wonderment as a result. 

Along with our exhibition, Nathan and I curated a show featuring four talented friends and image-makers. New work from, Brianna Spencer, Lori Damiano, Erik Railton, and Violet Aveline.

We hope to see you there!

Opening Reception: Friday, December 1st, 5-8 pm
Where: Chefas Projects 134 SE Taylor Street, Suite 203, Portland, OR
