“The future is but the obsolete in reverse.”
– Vladimir Nabokov

The artwork in “Back to the Future” blurs the line between lived and observed experience in late twentieth century America.

Patterson’s large-scale watercolor paintings investigate how we construct memories over time. She draws from an archive of collected family photographs, combining images of her own relatives with those of strangers.

With these archival materials as her starting point, she explores and reinvents a family, or family moment. In this way she creates a new style of nostalgia surrounding family portraiture.

Also showing artwork from the four finalists:
Born, Jessica Blinkhorn, Margaret Fletcher and Seana Reilly

An artist talk will take place at the gallery on Saturday, October 20, at 11 a.m.

Through Nov. 10.
