Paintings by Pat Hobaugh
On Friday, August 9th, 2019, Canyon Road Contemporary Art, 622 Canyon Road in Santa Fe, will present a show featuring the thoughtful, comical paintings of Pat Hobaugh. Reception will be from 5:00 - 7:00 PM; the exhibition will continue through August 18th.
Pat Hobaugh, an art professor at Georgia State University, paints contemporary still lifes on the nature of society in the world today. Inspired by the way we learn about forgotten cultures through found objects such as tools, toys, and ornaments, Pat wonders what the bric-a-brac of modern life says about us as a culture. Each still life demands that the viewer take a moment to consider the state of society, and their place in it.
