Pat Boas @ Marylhurst's Art Gym in Oregon

I know not many of you will be able to make it out to Portland for this exhibition, but Boas' work is worth having a close look at, especially for those of you in the new Introduction to Digital Media course. You can find out more about her work by reading the press release from Marylhurst and also from the artist's own website -

Pat Boas — Record Record.
Preview Reception
Sunday, Sept. 13, 3 to 5 PM
Exhibition continues through October 28.

Gallery Talk
Thursday, Oct. 8 at Noon

Pat Boas is an artist who has intrigued me for a number of years. The artist makes work
that explores and examines language in context— letter by letter, word by word, image
by image. I have long been drawn to the elegance of her ideas and their expression.
The Art Gym exhibition Pat Boas — Record Record includes four series that comment in
very quiet ways on the text and images in The New York Times and a new series of digital
works What Our Homes Can Tell Us that captures language found in the artist’s home and
places of importance to her extended family.
