The closing reception today for Out of Sorts, an installation of recycled materials and photographs by Adriane Herman, includes what the artist calls an Emotional Value Auction, at which attendees can offer an object of some personal significance to others through a “bid” process in which bidders write notes expressing interest in the things. It’s at Speedwell Projects (630 Forest Ave., Portland) from noon to 5 p.m. Free. 272-0863. speedwellprojects.com.
