Patrick Duegaw’s anxious art at Leedy-Voulkos Art Center

“The Innumerable Anxieties: Studies in Disorder,” Wichita-based Patrick Duegaw’s exhibit at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, is an allegorical, circus-like embodiment of the ambiguous and sometimes surreal tension that lies between primal emotions and codes of “proper” conduct. In large, richly executed paintings, he visualizes the innumerable anxieties from which the exhibit takes its title.
