Resident Curation at Appendix Project Space
When Zack Davis and Josh Pavlacky moved out to Portland and into the house on Alberta Street, the last thing they planned to do was open an art gallery. It was 2008, and the two friends, both artists fresh out of college, had only hoped to find a home with some extra space to work.
“A lot of our future was determined by finding the house,” says Davis. As he, Pavlacky, and friend Ledah Wilcox settled into their new digs, the garage out back of the house gradually morphed from studio space to community space. Pavlacky had developed an interest in urbanism and radical space use and was eager to experiment, so the trio began hosting parties and public figure-drawing classes. “We were meeting a lot of local weirdos and Portland hippie types,” says Davis, “which was a lot of fun.”
