August 23rd to September 20th
Falling Into Place: self-portraits by Patricia Lay Dorsey

Patrica Lay-Dorsey was diagnosed with chronic (primary) progressive multiple sclerosis in 1988, and in 2008 began taking self-portraits with the intention of showing from the inside the day-to-day life of a person with a disability. She calls the project Falling Into Place. The photographs chronicle the struggles and achievements of the artist as she learns to accept the limitations of her body and celebrate her abilities rather than her disability. Taken together, the images build a compelling narrative about the artist’s daily life that is both moving and offers a fascinating insider perspective. For more on the exhibit click here.
