ANX Gallery provides Portland with an exhibition space that shows a variety of media, artworks and functional objects. Alternating monthly member-maker shows, group and solo exhibitions provide a spectrum of form, function and utility. A goal of this curatorial project is to provide exposure to local makers, fine artists, and those who bridge the two. Additionally, we aim to offer people from underrepresented communities — women, people of color, LGBTQ and other minorities — a stage to display their talents and wares.

Gallery Curators

Emily Wobb

Emily Wobb is an artist and digital fabricator in Portland, OR. Upon completing her BFA at Carnegie Mellon University in 2013, Wobb moved to Portland to learn furniture-making and found Art Design Portland (ADX). After joining the fab team at ADX, Wobb grew to incorporate new techniques to build vehicular replicas and destroy them as spectacles for her studio practice.

Her work has been exhibited in Oregon, Washington, Pennsylvania, and the Netherlands. Wobb has recently received a 2015 PICA Precipice Fund as well as a 2017 RACC Project Grant. When she’s not working on cool projects on the fab team or casting resin airplanes in her studio, Wobb co-curates the ANX Gallery with Sami Lee Woolhiser. Wobb had previously co-curated the Bronco Gallery–a small gallery based in her 1991 Ford Bronco.

Sami Lee Woolhiser

Born in San Jose, California, Sami Lee Woolhiser grew up in the Silicon Valley, a culturally diverse and constantly advancing technological hub. Through her art practice, she explores these ideas through a variety of techniques and mediums varying from oil on canvas to woodworking with digital fabrication processes.

She studied Sculpture with a focus on digital fabrication and received her BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2014. After graduation Woolhiser moved to Portland, OR to pursue her career in the arts and has found her dream job working for the ADX Fabrication Team as the Digital Fabrication Project Manager. In her evenings and weekends, she works in the studio as well as managing and co-curating the ANX Gallery with Emily Wobb.
