“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
Guest-curated by Pattie Chalmers, Roadside Attractions — Next 5 Exits reveals a vision of the allure of the wayside through the work of five artists. These artists—Chalmers, Jeremy Kane, Peter Morgan, Mariko Paterson, and Nathan Prouty—create works that depict the recollection of travels, a portrayal of collected memories, nostalgia for past Americana, and the desire to contain an experience within an object. Viewers will recognize the expression of journeys made and imagined, and they will be able to connect through their shared experience.
