The Village Gallery welcomes Pat Holscher, national award winning watercolor artist as its guest artist for the months of September and October. Pat received a Gold Medal Award from the American Watercolor Society and has been juried into the Shenzhens Watercolor Biennial Show in China for the last two years. Her work can be found in many private, municipal, and corporate collections.
Pat will be attending an opening reception at the Village Gallery, 300 Hodges Street, Oriental from2:00 to 5:00 PM on Saturday, September 5, 2015.
Pat began drawing at an early age and has enjoyed a professional full time career as an artist since 1983. Although she works in pastels, acrylics, and oils she is primarily a watercolor artist. Her work stands out with bold and vibrant colors using drips and runs of the medium as a "surprise" in the integral parts of her paintings. She uses both color and texture to capture the sensual essence of animate subjects. She portrays the individual characteristics and personality of people, animals, and nature. She has studied art at Meredith College and East Carolina University and currently lives in Washington, North Carolina.
Pat's work can alsobe seen on her website at holscherstudio.com.
The Gallery is located at 300 Hodges Street in Oriental, NC . The gallery’s display changes frequently with different artists and works presented.
