Gallery Walk-Through with Patricia Boinest Potter
Saturday, January 24, 2015
Halsey Institute Galleries
A gallery walk-through with Patricia Boinest Potter will be held within the Halsey Institute’s galleries on Saturday, January 24, 2PM.
Patricia Boinest Potter creates enigmatic artworks in the form of three-dimensional maps that she refers to as Isomorphic Map Tables and 1:1 Map Insets. Ostensibly representing a one-hundred-mile stretch of northern Alabama, these works also expand outward to the cosmos, then inward again into the dark energy of particle physics. The exhibition, entitled Patterns of Place, will include a series of six Map Tables and one hundred 1:1 Map Insets. The show offers a tantalizing mix of technical experimentation, metaphoric expansiveness, and curiosity in every square inch. Curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute, the exhibition will also feature a video about the artist and a 120-page color catalogue. The exhibition will travel for several years throughout the United States after it debuts in Charleston.
