Event Description

Detroit based Patricia Lay-Dorsey, age 71, will give both an artist talk in Beacon at 6:30pm on Saturday and a school visit to Beacon High on Monday to present 20 color photographs in her solo exhibition “Falling Into Place: self portraits”.

Also known as ‘Grandma Techno’ (as an annual participant in Detroit’s electronic music festival) and a former marathon runner she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 25 years ago.

She writes: “During those years I moved from walking unaided to walking with a cane, from a cane to a walker, and in 2000 from a walker to a 3-wheeled motorized scooter. There can come a time when the only person who can tell your story is yourself. In some strange way, I feel this IS my place, to see the world waist-high rather than face-to-face. Being disabled can really suck. And it can teach too. Patience, humility, determination, even gratitude."

Patricia Lay-Dorsey's work has been exhibited at The Annenberg Space for Photography and the Griffin Museum in Boston. The Ffotogallery of Wales is publishing her first book in 2013.
