IMMERSION AND INTERACTION: WITNESSING THE EVERYDAY
PAT COOMEY THORNTON
November 12, 2020-March 7, 2021
This modest retrospective features a selection of paintings, drawings, and sculptures culled from over thirty-years of Coomey Thornton’s prolific career.
Pat Coomey Thornton’s ability to translate her everyday experiences as an artist, a daughter, and a mother onto an abstract picture plane is matched only by the intensity she brings to each artwork.
The works in Immersion & Interaction: Witnessing the Everyday do not blatantly illustrate the artist’s life, but rather reflect the relentless activity, intentionality, and colorful energy Pat Coomey Thornton offers the world.
This exhibition is a celebration of her works and a testament to the talent that continues to come out of the SouthCoast.
