Patrick DeGuira Presents Sarratt Gallery Talk on November 8

Sarratt Gallery features Nashville-based artist Patrick DeGuira in an exhibit of his text-based works, signs, patterns, animals, that opens on Monday, November 5. DeGuira will present a gallery talk on Thursday, November 8, at 5 p.m. followed by a reception.

DeGuira describes his work as nonlinear and based in a variety of media using pre-digital sign-making techniques to achieve a level of handmade precision. The pieces start with words and phrases which are then layered and disrupted through complex systems of pattern, geometry, and editing processes.

“I am interested in ideas that convey a phenomenological disruption or reduction,” said DeGuira. “My work is often based on family histories, childhood experiences, or on familiar domestic subject matter.” Color plays an important role in the work that he makes, adding symbolism, and, oftentimes, an unsettling element.

The exhibit closes on Tuesday, November 27. Sarratt Gallery hours are 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
