Airidescence: Anne Patterson’s First Alfstad& Contemporary Exhibition

Airidescence by Anne Patterson will be on view November 10-December 9, 2016, at Alfstad& Contemporary in Sarasota, FL.

Airidescence is Anne Patterson‘s first Alfstad& Contemporary exhibition, featuring abstract watercolor paintings, hanging ribbon sculptures and wire installations.  The works will transform the gallery into a multi-sensory experience, showcasing Patterson’s integration of two worlds: art and music.

Ability to Hear Color and Sees Sound

Due to synesthesia, a neurological condition in which the stimulation of one sense causes an involuntary response to another sense, Anne Patterson hears color and sees sound. Based in New York, the artist exhibits paintings and sculptures throughout the United States and Europe in private, public and corporate collections.

Installations for Major Orchestras

In addition, she has created installations consisting of scenery, projections and lighting for major orchestras across the country. Some of these include the San Francisco and Atlanta Symphonies; Philadelphia, Chicago and American Symphony Orchestras; and the New World Symphony in Miami.

Experience in Theatrical Design

Experienced in theatrical design, Patterson’s Graced with Light, a music-inspired art installation, filled the vaulted ceiling arches of San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral with 20 miles of ribbon. She created The Light Between out of aluminum wire to heighten the natural light is an atrium in Boston.

Visitors can also see her “Pathless Woods” interactive, multi-media installation at the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art.
