Two Musick Works on Exhibit

Rutland Vermont has become the home of two of Pat Musick’s giant wall sculptures. The first to be installed is Ishtar at the Southside SteakHouse. This is a powerful mixed media work…canvas, stone, wood and steel. Large, sweeping curves describe the Mesopotamian Goddess of fertility, war, love and sex. Hmmm. Interesting combination. Did the Mesopotamians have it right?She is receiving enthusiastic acceptance from patrons of the new, delightful Grill as well as Wally Sabotka, the owner.

The other sculpture is at the Green Mountain Power Company. It is titled Ra. This is a depiction of the Egyptian God of the sun. It speaks of the function of GMP, to produce and provide power and energy. Made of wood, canvas and acrylic it rests on a huge earth-green wall in the company’s computer facility. It is a focus point for the activity area where workers can take an exercise break. Both pieces are from Musick’s Gods and Goddesses series.

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.
