Way with weeds

"Mullein in Field," by John Knight

Despite RoundUp maker Monsanto's best efforts to make us fear native plants, artist John Knight doesn't subscribe to their toxic philosophy. Instead he celebrates these common plants in monumental and boldly colored artworks. You can check out a selection tomorrow night during Portland's First Friday Art Walk. His works are on view at the Portland Downtown District offices at 549 Congress St.

If you want to read more about Knight and his work, be sure to pick up today's copy of Switch Magazine, where I have a story about him in our Art Walk Guide.
