Emily Holt and Lesley Patterson-Marx: Hidden Worlds 

When: Feb. 28-March 28 2014
If you were intrigued by True Detective’s gritty layered mythology or the mysterious futurism of St. Vincent’s latest release, you might find yourself similarly drawn to the work currently on view at Vanderbilt’s Sarratt Gallery. Hidden Worlds is a collaborative exhibit between artists and friends Emily Holt and Lesley Patterson-Marx, who met in graduate school in North Carolina and now teach art at University School of Nashville. But where Patterson-Marx makes delicate collages and nontoxic prints, Holt’s sculptures are built of layered scrap wood. The sculptures — both wall hangings and boxes — have partially concealed interiors beneath the cutout scraps, like doll houses excavated in an archaeology dig. That ghostly sensibility makes both artists perfectly suited for a show about secrets. Join Holt and Patterson-Marx at tonight’s reception to discuss their work, and see if you don’t find yourself humming The Handsome Family before night’s end.
