MAGIC: Paintings by Alan Patrick

MUNCIE INDIANA – Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company to present Magic, an exhibition of paintings by artist Alan Patrick, Thursday September 6, 5 – 8 pm.   

Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company will present the exhibition Magic with paintings by artist Alan Patrick throughout the month of September.    The exhibit will feature new paintings by Mr. Patrick who is beloved in Indiana’s art community and is always considered among the most committed and consistent talents of our time.  Throughout the evening, he will be on hand to engage with viewers and answer questions. At 6:15 he will speak briefly about his work.  Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

Patrick is known for his uncanny ability to capture the mist of early morning in the woods as well as the sunlight and haze of a summer afternoon settling on water and on distant landscapes.  “I can pass by a place a hundred times and that place is just ordinary.  There is nothing of visual interest there.  Then, one day, it’s magic. It has color, form, light, and drama.  It has suddenly become a wonderful place to look at.  I know there is a painting there.”

Patrick has strong roots in East Central Indiana having grown up in Centerville and received his training in painting and ceramics at Ball State University in the early 1960’s.  Soon afterward, he established the well-known Bethel Pike Pottery with John Peterson and David Cayton in Albany, Indiana.  When the pottery closed in 2006, he began to paint full time and has been included in many exhibitions throughout Indiana and beyond.  Several weeks ago he was given the “Award for Traditional Landscape” at the 2018 Hoosier Art Salon which is currently open at the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis.

Business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 9 am – 3 pm.
