Main Street Gallery, Weaverville, CA - June 2013 - Pat Carlson           

Patricia A. Carlson, the Main Street Gallery’s featured artist for June, is a multi-media artist, born and raised in Ontario, Canada, now living and working in the mountain community of Burney in Northern California. Much of her work reflects the inspiration she derives from our vast, beautiful wilderness area and the tough people who call it home, all blended together with past experiences to make her work totally innovative and uniquely original. The interpretive realism of her painting celebrates the simpler aspects of everyday life as well as the grandeur of the North American landscape. Her work invites the viewer to see the imagery around them and beauty in the commonplace.

Carlson prefers to let the subject dictate the medium rather than accept the limitations of any particular one. Because of her wide-ranging interests and technical mastery, she works in oils, acrylic, pencil, collage and watercolor. Her most recent work has been in “experimental mixed-media”. Carlson is a college art instructor, judge, gallery owner, arts lecturer and published author. She conducts workshops in the U.S., Canada and Mexico in both experimental and traditional painting techniques.
