Patricia Causey - Featured Artist - September 2012

Main Street Gallery, Weaverville CA

Artwork by Patricia Causey

This Saturday, September 1, at Art Cruise, the Main Street Gallery will feature Patricia Causey, a mixed-media artist, art teacher and businesswoman. She utilizes ceramics, wood, metal and fiber in her work. Her passion is assembling objects and helping them morph into new life: to shift perspective. She likes the elements of surprise and play that often occur. Causey’s training as a textile artist is evident in her work. She uses unique materials to interpret her surroundings. Her work is textural and three-dimensional. She comments that she is unable to keep her work flat and is always looking for ways to forge new layers.

As a child, Causey’s family merely tolerated her creativity. Her first tools were from a Cracker Jacks box that she used to dismantle the family phone. Consequently, she lost the chance to use those particular tools again.

Causey’s husband helped supply her with an arsenal of better tools and she credits him with helping her learn the value of building carefully. She has her own ceramic studio and wood shop with lots of storage. She and her husband have a small lavender farm in Siskiyou County, where they have lived for the past 25 years.
