The Pratt Museum is excited to present our current temporary exhibit – Patterns in Place – works by Deland Anderson. An opening exhibition will be held from 4-6pm on October 6th, the first Friday of the month and will be free to the public, and the exhibit will be on display in our Temporary Exhibit Hall until December 27, 2023. Art cards by Anderson will be available to purchase in the Museum Store.
From the artist:
“This exhibit brings together some of the paintings I have composed over the past 30 years. Many are drawn from various exhibits I have mounted in Alaska and the Lower 48. Others are new. There is no overarching theme that ties them together. It’s more just a display of the sorts of things I have done with dot painting since I first encountered Aboriginal art in the Australian Outback in 1980. I am constantly keying into pattern and how it distributes color in the world. I hope you can share in this experience by letting these paintings lead you back into your world with a heightened sense of the play between sky and land, water and light, with a sense of how the vastness of a world may be centered on a berry or blossom.”
