Pat Musick Lecture at Edgewater Gallery


About Pat Musick

For all of my life (since I was four), I have made art. Using my hands to create artwork is a privilege and a joy. If the art has a sense of peace...a zen feeling, then I have succeeded in my desire to make work that is harmonious and whole. In order to achieve that goal, the art must be experienced. This website will provide that encounter and introduces you to my sculpture, paintings and drawings that span a forty year period. You will be able to see from whence I came, the changes over time and where I am going today. There has been much growth. I began as a painter and transitioned to wall sculpture, then free standing works. Over the years, I have retained my interest in two dimensions by making works on paper. The art moved from expressionistic to abstract to conceptual and has undergone a steady reduction to simpler elements and media. The materials I use are stone, steel, wood, canvas and kozo paper and beeswax. Stone, wood, and beeswax reflect the natural world and steel, canvas and paper, the human. My artistic goal is to express the relationship between mankind and the environment and the tensions we exert upon each other. I search for resolution and reconciliation. I find it in the process of rebirth and renewal. From the natural world process of regeneration, I have learned that from adversity comes the chance for new beginnings. I make both large and small, indoor and outdoor sculpture and works on paper. My work is represented in the permanent collections of over fifty museums and public spaces in the country. I have MA and PhD degrees from Cornell University and I am the author of four books. I am represented by MK Fine Arts, Andover, New Hampshire, West Branch Gallery, Stowe, Vermont, Edgewater Gallery, Middlebury, Vermont and in the Fall, 2011 The Clark Gallery, Lincoln, Massachusetts.
