Join us in September for, Patricia Stockman's
"NO FORWARDING ADDRESS"
at TAG's gallery on Market Street
Many are drawn to abandoned places. The texture of the peeling paint, the color of the rust, the elegant juxtaposition of spaces both empty and whole. Is the house defined by the people who lived in it, or could it be defined by the structure that remains? How many years did it take to become in such disrepair; consumed by the elements?

From a piece, "Abandoned Conservations" by Patricia Stockman
Patricia Stockman's exhibition, "No Forwarding Address," offers the viewer a range of photographed subjects, from individual houses to an entire town. The images reveal the passage of time as houses succumb, room by room, to decay. Individual “portraits” of buildings depict a town, dwindled in population. Finally, there are photographic collages that combine the materials that make a house a home: photos, wallpaper, wood, nails, addresses. Always as curious about the process, as much as the subject, the Patrica Stockman delivers each abandoned place in a manner befitting its existence.
