About the Speakers

Torreya Cummings is a project-based visual artist working with ideas of space, place, and time, particularly around unlearning dominant narratives of the American west. Their methods include photography, sculpture, installation, performance and video with a particular emphasis on making spaces for action. Cummings uses drag aesthetics, substitutions, hardware store materials, the unsettling relationship of history and fiction, landscape, research, ambivalence, theater tricks, bad illusions, props, sets, and interpretive sites. They have exhibited solo projects at the Oakland Museum of California, Aggregate Space Gallery, and more, and have presented performances with Machine Project, Southern Exposure, and the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts, among others. Cummings received an MFA in sculpture from California College of the Arts and lives and works in Emeryville, CA.

Shara Mays (she,her) is a visual artist whose practice is deeply rooted in painting, using the medium to explore the fluidity of memory and the transcendence of self through the language of abstraction and landscape. Born in Tarboro, North Carolina, Shara currently lives in Oakland, California. She received her BFA degree from The Corcoran College of Art and Design at George Washington University. She received her MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums such as the de Young Museum of San Francisco, Root Division in San Francisco, the Diego Rivera Gallery at the San Francisco Art Institute, and recently at Round Weather Gallery in Oakland, California. She has, in the past, been awarded a residency at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont, and is a current Affiliate Artist at the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, California. Her work is included in both public and private collections. She will have her first solo show at Chandran Gallery in San Francisco in August 2022.

The Museum is conveniently located on the historic Park Blocks in the center of downtown Portland, which is easy to get around by public transit or on foot. The Portland Business Alliance has installed way-finding signs which direct you to the cultural district, where the Museum is located.

The Willamette River divides the City of Portland into east and west districts. The Portland Art Museum is roughly 12 blocks south of West Burnside Street and nine blocks west of the Willamette River. (Park Avenue is the same as 9th Avenue). The Museum is bounded by SW Park Avenue to the east, 10th Avenue to the west, Jefferson Street to the south, and Main Street to the north.

Thanks to forward-thinking city officials and an economical, easy-to-use transit system, it couldn’t be easier to get to the Museum by public transportation. The bus and streetcar travel directly past the Museum, and the MAX light rail has a stop only four blocks away. TriMet’s Trip Planner gives you step-by-step travel directions from your location by bus, light rail, or streetcar.
