Pam Caughey Ubiquitous 17


Opening Friday, August 1, 2014 at the Missoula Art Museum in Morris and Helen Silver Gallery in Missoula, Montana, “Ubiquitous: Paths of Pathogens” is an exhibition by Pam Caughey, who has never ventured too far from her background and training as a biochemist; thusly, has tracked the routes that pathogens take as they travel throughout the world. This is a recurring theme in her work and she sees the end result in her efforts to encourage dialogue and problem solving.

     The focus of this exhibition is a large-scale triptych of etched glass. Caughey has been concerned with global influences that we contemplate as inescapable and viewers will discover beyond the artistic abstraction, this show it will provide much educational knowledge.

     By taking a micro look at organisms and enlarging that view, Caughey reveals what seems like new visions and ideas; abstraction is indeed realism. The exhibition will include enlarged imagery of pathogens and microorganisms.
