Alumnus Scott Patt to Be Featured in First NYC Solo Exhibition

The work of Scott Patt will be featured in a solo show at New York City's Winston Wachter Gallery from December 6 through January 19. The show is titled "Still Here" and is an exhibition of works that explore the personal symbology of luck, the sanctuary of youth, and the hope and humor of daily life amongst the din of foretold ruin. Patt utilizes iconic symbols, objects and concepts that have a rooted power, meaning and often nostalgia within modern popular culture from advertising to cartoons and cultural icons. These recognizable forms and ideas are transposed, tweaked and twisted to expose new meanings, modes and issues from the intimate to the global, to the ironic and optimistic. STILL HERE exposes Patt’s philosophical conflicts and shelters within memory, superstition, faith and luck to prep and protect from life’s impending end... or viewed another way, preparing to live in case we find we’re still here. The Winston Wachter Gallery is located at 530 West 25th Street in New York. There will be an artist's reception on Thursday, December 13 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
