About the Exhibition

PAAM Director Christine McCarthy is thrilled to present the work of artist Yvette Drury Dubinsky in her annual Director’s Choice exhibition. Bringing together approximately twenty works of art from nearly three decades of the artist’s career, this exhibition exemplifies Dubinsky’s powerful ability to combine practices resulting in elegant, textural, organic, and geometric compositions that narrate her life’s journey. A diverse range of media form Dubinsky’s body of work, including drawing, photography, collage, printmaking, and digital manipulation. Based on her personal encounters from global travels to certain smells, social concerns, to living on Cape Cod, the creative process results in a series of compositions that track and record a diverse experience.

“Dubinsky’s work is visually and emotionally affective, and powerfully reveals her appreciation for the struggle and triumph of the human condition,” writes McCarthy in the forthcoming catalog.
