upcoming exhibition: Roadside Attractions—Next 5 Exits

Mar 10 to Apr 30

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
—Ernest Hemingway

Guest-curated by Pattie Chalmers, Roadside Attractions — Next 5 Exits
reveals a vision of the allure of the wayside through the work of five
artists. These artists—Chalmers, Jeremy Kane, Peter Morgan, Mariko
Paterson, and Nathan Prouty—create works that depict the recollection of
travels, a portrayal of collected memories, nostalgia for past
Americana, and the desire to contain an experience within an object.
Viewers will recognize the expression of journeys made and imagined, and
they will be able to connect through their shared experience.
