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.
Ever the optimist – anx gallery presents New Works by Sami Lee Woolhiser
Dates: January 5-28th
Opening Reception: January 5th, 6-9pm
Artist Talk and Closing Reception: January 26th, 7pm
“Ever the Optimist is an exhibition of works that draw on my experiences and surroundings. I combine aerial landscapes and domestic objects through sculpture, photography, and installation to illustrate our connections with everything and everyone around us, as well as what they have to teach us.
Although positivity has always been a part of my identity, personal life changes and international events in the past few years have made it difficult for me to maintain my optimism. Only through making artwork and objects have I found any refuge – a way of life that can allow me to exist as both a realist and an optimist.” Sami Lee Woolhiser

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.
