Two New Exhibits

There is alot going on in our creative lives. The New England traveling exhibit “Our Fragile Home” opened at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery at College of the Holy Cross on June 6th. It is a beautiful installation, there was a well attended reception and Jerry and Pat did a gallery talk to an attentive audience. Jerry showed slides of the earth from space pointing out the ways nature and mankind contribute to pollution and destruction of our planet. Pat showed the artwork in progress and discussed how it also “spoke” about the condition of our earthly home and the need to protect it. Our Fragile Home  will be at the Cantor until July 25 and then it will begin its middle America tour from 2014-2016 to Alabama, Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana.

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.
