The Whistler House Museum of Art is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, “Patrick McCay: A Thematic Retrospective — Explore, Exploit, Express.” The show will run from April 20 to August 3, 2024. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 20, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Parker Gallery. Patrick McCay’s work occupies the space between the literal and abstract. Skillfully orchestrated colors pepper the expressive surfaces of chosen icons. Grounded in a scaffold of remarkable drawings and an immediacy of gestural brushstrokes, he tempts and teases with a visual theatricality, adding the dignity of the ‘unknown’ to that which is all too well ‘known.’ McCay focuses his visual explorations within the imposed contours and attentive challenge of thematic expression. McCay is currently a professor at the Institute of Art and Design at New England College in Henniker, NH. Joining him as part of the exhibition are several former and current students, including: David Drinon, former student and current Boston and Cape Ann painter, as well as former Artist-in-Resident at the WHMA; Suzanne Hodge, current student and Western Avenue Studio Artist; and Lucas Grondin, former BFA student at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
