Jenene Nagy, The Weight

A review for Jenene Nagy's beautiful exhibition "The Weight" at Helzer Gallery was featured in Variable West.

"Jenene Nagy’s exhibition, The Weight, at the Helzer’s Gallery on Portland Community College’s Rock Creek campus is a welcome dialogue of artistic concept inextricably connected to a profound commitment to artistic making. The word “weight” is commonly related to the measure of relative mass and implies a burden, but also can suggest importance and a quantifier of depth of concept. Materials inevitably weigh on art, affecting both the physicality and the conceptual underpinnings of work. Nagy’s treatment of her materials acutely carries the weight of this exhibition. "
