Long-time student and supporter of Paint Creek Center for the Arts, Patricia McGraw enjoys taking her learning to the next level as she participates in programs offered throughout the year. She enjoys being present at exhibition Gallery Talks where she hears artists discuss the intent behind their works. She says that conversations with the artists here often help her to understand challenging art that she sees in other galleries and museums. She especially enjoys hearing artists talk about how they manage to get their work done and exhibited; how the organize their studios, how the prepare their work for exhibition, how they learn about and enter exhibitions. In her own words, she is “interested in a lot of the stuff that comes before their art gets to the walls of PCCA.”

You can come and find out for yourself what Patricia and other visitors enjoy at an upcoming Gallery Talk. These talks are an informal, friendly conversation with some or all of the exhibiting artists in the show. The Gallery Talks are free and open to the public.  View a complete schedule of Gallery Talks here.
