Patrick will be exhibiting in a group exhibition titled "THE SILENT WITNESS", curated by Stefania Carrozzini, at the Camden Image Gallery in London, England.

The exhibition project, inspired by the Icelandic documentary film "Innsaei", focuses on the idea of Nature in the contemporary. Nature, our mother earth, is conceived here in all its complexity, as a silent witness with its strength, immensity and beauty that observes us leaving us aware of our fragility with respect to it and reminding us that in the end all is one, everything belongs to the same substance of the cosmos.

It is nature today that dictates an ethics in an imperative way and it will be nature in the future that obliges us to return to our essence. How long will the earth be able to accommodate a selfish human being who thinks and acts on the basis of the laws of the market and of interest? From here depends our destiny of inhabitants of the planet. All the achievements of contemporary art cannot be separated from the comparison with nature because it represents the measure of conscience and sensitivity.

Nature, therefore, is the Silent Witness, it has a soul watching us and gives without wanting anything in return, like the sun that rises and sets every day following a cosmic harmony. Nature is sacred, and art, looking at it, can contribute to the awareness and the birth of a new planetary consciousness. "Human and Nature with the united soul will build a new world", Joseph Beuys often repeated, and this is what we hope for and this is also the spirit with which the artists worked.

The exhibition "The Silent Witness" is an international event that starts from Milan and then continues, in 2019, to New York from December 11 to December 22 and London from February 12 to February 23 2019.

RECAP: BEVERLY HILLS ARTSHOW

About

Exhibition: “Beverly Hills ArtSHOW”

Location: Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA across four linear blocks of historic Beverly Gardens between Rodeo Drive and Rexford Drive

Dates: May and October, annually
This free juried show features art by over 245 invited fine artists from around the nation who showcase their work in painting, sculpture, watercolor, photography, mixed media, ceramics, jewelry, drawing and printmaking.  The quality is always top notch and atmosphere lively, inviting and professional.
 
I have done this event in Spring and Fall since 2014.  The City of Beverly Hills provides an extraordinary experience for both artists and visitors.  In October, 2018 I had ten past and current clients stop by my booth to say hello and see the latest from my easel.

During the Spring 2018 show I was promoted as a “Featured Artist” in the program.  Southwest Art Magazine picked up the story and included my paintings in their April 2018 print issue.  As a result of this promotion I was contacted by a gallery in New York and London for future exhibitions and representation.

RECAP: MILL VALLEY FALL ARTS FESTIVAL

AAbout

Exhibition: “Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival at Old Mill Park”

Location: Old Mill Park, Mill Valley, CA

Dates: September annually

September, 2018

This juried show began in 1957. After 62 continuous years it is held annually in the heart of Marin  County.  This event features over 125 invited fine artists and makers from around the nation who showcase their work in a variety of disciplines.  The quality is eclectic, but the atmosphere among the redwoods creek is unbeatable!

This event encourages public art education and showcases emerging artists and students in separated areas.

I have done this event twice.  Both times my sales were extraordinary.  At the last event I actually had two customers in a “friendly fight” over a painting!  The set up is challenging due to the hilly topography but worth every step and groan.  Lanterns are hung in the redwood trees, a band plays on a stage overlooking the creek, and visitors wander around eager to purchase.  A marvelous combination.
 
Last year I sold a painting to a family that lost their home in the Santa Rosa fire.  They planned to rebuild and wanted the painting as their inspiration.
