My Paintings to be in a New Show at Patris Gallery

I'm very pleased to say that four of my paintings have been accepted into a new show opening this weekend at the Patris Art Gallery 3460 2nd Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95817.

The show is entitled " STUDENT/INSTRUCTOR ARTISTIC EXCELLENCE SHOW" and will exhibit the work of some of the notable instructors who have conducted workshops at the Patris Studio as well as those students who have benefited from their teaching.  I'm in the latter group, having taken workshops from Fongwei Liu ( ) and Qaing Huang (pronounced Chong Wong )  These are only a few of the very high quality artists and teachers that Patris has brought to Sacramento.  I can say without reservation that the two workshops I took were absolutely integral to my growth as an artist.  

The show will begin with a Second Saturday reception from 6 pm to 10 pm on Saturday, August 8th.  I look forward to the possibility of seeing you there.  The paintings below have been accepted for the show and are framed and available for purchase at the Patris Art Gallery.

The Lights of Noyo Harbor    18 x 36 oil

  1. Congratulations on the show. I love the paintings chosen for exhibit. Good work!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement Ruth. I'm pleased with the paintings going into the show. They represent my most recent and my best work to date. It's exciting to put them out there. The show runs until nearly the end of September, so if you are in the Downtown or Oak Park area, try to stop by and say hello to Patris. She is inspirational!
