Patricia Chandler a Solo Exhibition of Paintings
Richard Boyd Art Gallery is honored to install another great solo exhibition of paintings by noted artist and educator Patricia Chandler on July 2nd at 10:00 a.m. This is Pat's fourth solo and each year her show is amazing.
After several years of working in the commercial field creating illustrations Pat moved to Minnesota, where she renewed her interest in printmaking and painting at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, moving back to Maine in 1971, later becoming an Adjunct Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Maine from 2005 to 2014.
When asked about her creative process and style Pat said, "My creative process and production inevitably refer to my geographic roots. Maine's more remote regions inspired much of my artwork to the same degree that its landscapes informed my early life. Ever since I can remember, the trees and woods, mountains, lakes and fields of Maine have been where my mental, physical, and emotional balance could be restored.
The influence of those sensual memories emerges strongly when I work in the studio. My work includes realistic paintings that seek to record places and certain senses of space and color in sites more visited in the summer by people from other places. Those are more meditative in practice–exercises. The expressionistic, semi-abstract images touch the feeling associated with those wilderness regions of forest and ocean. The variety of Maine's natural environment is sufficient for many lifetimes of an artist."
Pat recently moved to South Portland, Maine where she continues to create paintings in a range of mediums and styles. Her work is widely collected and held in numerous private and corporate collections across the US.
The exhibit is open free of charge between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily through July 30, 2020. Images of paintings hanging in the gallery will be available for viewing on the gallery's Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/
