Husson University announced today that it is featuring the work of mixed media artist Patricia Pasteur in the Robert E. White Gallery in Peabody Hall on its Bangor, Maine campus. The exhibit, entitled “Cold Stream Reflections (Altered Imagery)” will run until October 30, 2014.
“My work is a blend of photography, digital art, and painting on canvas,” said Pasteur. “I find inspiration in the colors, lights, textures I see outside my window in the beautiful Maine woods on Cold Stream Pond in Lowell, Maine.” Pasteur’s work is the result of a great deal of experimentation and happy accidents. Using a blank canvas painted with bright, vivid colors in acrylic, it is then treated with a digital ground which enables the colors to fully absorb the dye-based ink from the printer making it waterproof and permanent. Several photographs are then blended together and printed on the archival canvas. In reflecting on her work process, Pasteur said, “I never know what the final outcome will be. I love taking an ordinary photograph and making it extraordinary.”
The Robert E. White Gallery is free and open to the public, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is located in Peabody Hall on the campus of Husson University at 1 College Circle, Bangor, ME. For additional information contact (207) 941-7887.
