Jonny Fenix, lent not only the name of his art show (Time for Lions), but his talented hand to the new Stars of Track and Field album and website.

Justin Vernon, best known as Bon Iver, has a new side project called Volcano Choir (that’s fantastic!) and the cover of that album features artwork by last September’s artist Adrienne Deboer.

American Blur: Photos by May Juliette Barruel and Tamar Monhait


NEMO presents American Blur by May Juliette Barruel and Tamar Monhait, a photo exhibit opening on Friday, March 06, 2009 6-10pm. The show will run through Wednesday, April 01, 2009 at NEMO: 1875 SE Belmont Street in Portland, OR. The opening reception will include special musical guest, Sigmund Henry.

american pie. american eagle. american literature. american football. american cars. american dream. american english. american flag. american express. american dollar. american airlines. american idol. american frontier. american pitbull. american presidents. american blur. American Blur examines the images that make-up the “American” consciousness both individually and collectively. Barruel and Monhait exhibit work that creates the feeling of an overwhelming barrage of the social and physical landscapes identified as “American.”

A native of Grenoble, France and a resident of Portland, Oregon since 2000, May Juliette Barruel works as both an artist and curator. Her textile-based work and photography address the themes of nostalgia, foreignness, obsession and loss in an intimate and often voyeuristic fashion. As a curator, Barruel has been responsible for Stumptown Coffee Roasters’ downtown gallery since 2006. She also owns Nationale, a shop and gallery on Portland’s east side.

Barruel holds a master of arts degree in American Literature from l’Université de Paris Sorbonne Nouvelle and a professional certificate from New England School of Photography in Boston, Massachusetts. 

Tamar Monhait ( is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Portland, Oregon. She was born and raised in Chicago and has spent time between the two cities studying Electrical Engineering and Art. Her work explores process, ritual, music mathematics, technology, and time. She has participated in group shows at Disjecta, Hall Gallery, PNCA, Mark Woolley, Jace Gace, and the Newberg Gallery at the Glasgow School of Art. She also had solo exhibitions at Stumptown Downtown.

LOVECITYLOVE By Lucien Pellegrin @ StudioNemo this Friday!


By Lucien Pellegrin

I gain inspiration from the clean, dirty, gritty subcultures of humanity who have been torn and beaten by a social construct that is no longer conducive for their personal condition. Through this inspiration, I see the Beauty in all that we are. In essence, there is no one way to live life, no right way to make art, no perfect way to die.

Lucien Pellegrin lives and works in Seattle as a teaching artist for a non-profit organization by the name of Arts Corps. Come check the Lucians art out Friday Dec 5th 6-10 PM at StudioNemo 1875 SE Belmont st. Portland,OR.




Thanksgiving is a group photography exhibit/silent auction. The exhibit is a free form salon style show. The photographers’ only direction was to photograph something or someone they are grateful for. Nemo is excited to welcome some incredible photographers who are donating their work in an effort to raise money for the Oregon Food Bank

Please join us for the silent auction, opening night, Friday, November 7th from 6-10pm. Every piece will be auctioned off at affordable prices, allowing people to own a piece of art and raise funds for a great cause at the same time.

First Friday Gallery Show

Friday 09/05/08


1875 SE Belmont Ave. 


Please join us for First Friday at Nemo. We are excited to present the work of photographer Adrienne DeBoer. DeBoer explores memories through the topography of her childhood. Her work gives the viewer glimpses into issues of emotion, forgetting, tradition and collective realities. While a dark humor runs through the dreamy landscape, the more tangible reality of disconnection between childhood and adulthood; and the consciousness of city dweller vs. rural inhabitant are present throughout the work.
