Art First Gallery October Joint Exhibition: “I Am Woman” Reception

Patti Durbin and Patricia Giovannoni are presenting their first joint exhibit at Art First Gallery in Fredericksburg VA. The exhibition runs from October 5th through October 29th.  A reception will be held on Friday, October 6th from 6pm to 9pm.
The two artists are showcasing their collaborative and individual works. The copper artwork reflects their combined strengths and is an exploration of the possibilities that abound in the creative process and in their handling of the material. The results are women who convey emotions which can resonate with every woman’s life journey.
Patti creates with fabric, canvas and copper resulting in diverse and unique images. Her artwork expresses the joy and uniqueness found in embracing yourself as you are.  She approaches art from an organic perspective, creating many of her pieces using a mixed media format and much of the art emerges naturally when she begins to interact with the materials at hand.
In addition to the copper pieces, Patricia is an intuitive painter who creates art using acrylics, encaustics, gelatin plate prints, clay and paper to produce abstracts, portraits and landscapes. She is inspired not by one single thing, but by all that surrounds us: nature, its colors and textures, the shadows and light. They are all part of a story she wants to share with her art.
