Every Wednesday–Saturday, through July 13
Chefas Projects Central Eastside (Portland)
This is an in-person event

When I last saw Emily Wise's work in her 2023 Chefas Projects solo exhibition Hands that Hold the Melting Rope, the artist's surreal, neon-hued acrylic compositions were populated with dream-world cool girls, flowing flora, and mystical patterns. The motto of Wise's work seems to be "the longer you look, the more you find," like a lucid dream in painting form. This time around, she depicts the Irish banshees of her grandmother's fairy tales, and wonders whether the matriarch was "merely the keeper of these Irish legends, or indeed the very banshee she spoke of."
