Artspace Patchogue, NY Show, April 15-30, 2014

© Miranda Gatewood-3106Women’s Exhibit at Artspace Patchogue Gallery, April 1530, 2014. Opening reception April 19th at 7 pm. The Gallery at Artspace Patchogue allows resident artists, local, national, and international artists a chance to share their works with the local community and visitors. Located in downtown Patchogue, a Long Island community about 50 miles east of New York City, Artspace Patchogue houses The Patchogue Arts Council and The Plaza Cinema & Media Arts Center and represents both economic revitalization and the opportunity to strengthen a growing arts community. Thanks to Denise Palmieri for this exhibition opportunity. Gallery Hours: Thurs.-Fri. 5-9, Sat. 1-7, Sun. 1-5.

Caregiver, my piece in the invitational show, represents a photographer’s level of intimacy with the subject. This image was made a month before a friend’s father passed away. It chronicles his slipping away from our world of clarity and vitality. Even the space he occupies is metaphorically devoid of color and vibrancy. In a rare moment of relief from the burden of caretaking, his wife and caregiver smiles in resilience.
