Artist Pat Hobaugh describes his paintings as "Contemporary Pop Culture Still Life", and he explains his mission best. "I want the viewers to access the work first through humor—to embrace the playfulness of the paintings. I also want them to connect with the paintings on a personal level—you might say I’m toying with their emotions by invoking nostalgia for their childhood. But then the paintings are designed so the longer you look at them, you’ll find the deeper layers of meaning and content—so they toy with your mind as well. " Museum is CLOSED Thursday, November 23 for Thanksgiving.
