Pat Coomey Thornton: Moment to Moment

February 28 - March 9

Moment to Moment is an exhibition by New Bedford-based artist Pat Coomey Thornton in the University Art Gallery from January 11 through March 9, 2023.

This exhibition, created specifically for UMass Dartmouth, presents abstract oil paintings and gouaches on paper between 2011 and 2023. The artist invites us to enter the world of rich layers of vibrant colors, changing “moment to moment” from a darker and heavier palette to a brighter and more optimistic one, offering quiet meditation but also tension, beauty, chaos, and exuberance.

Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to “share their moment” by photographing a favorite detail of Pat Coomey Thornton’s paintings and posting on social media using the hashtag #findmymoment and tagging @umassdartmouthgalleries.
