Catich Gallery, Galvin Fine Arts Center
Patrick Earl Hammie's works focus specifically on constructions of gender and race, putting pressure on these categories as a means of expanding understanding of identity.
His work also investigates how male artists have imagined and visually formulated the nude figure in the history of Western art. His recent project, Significant Other, discusses perceptions of ruined and objectified bodies that recall and carry on complex legacies of suffering and struggle.
Hammie has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. including Stewart Center Gallery at Purdue University; Porter Butts Gallery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; and the Painting Center and Drawing Center in New York. His work is in several public collections including the Kohler Company, the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University, and the William Benton Museum of Art.
Catich Gallery is located in the Galvin Fine Arts Center on Gaines Street, between Locust and Lombard.
