Gatherum of Quiddities:
Paintings by Pat Adams
April 1 through June 18
For sixty years Pat has approached painting with an empiricist’s concern for the nature of visual form and the intimist’s sensibility that addresses the layering complexity of being. With abstract paintings characterized by seductive colors and richly encrusted surfaces, Pat seeks to bring from her “gatherum of quiddities” – that stew of unnamed qualities – a visual situation that bestirs contemplation.
A fully illustrated catalog will be available through the Bennington Museum.
