Patricia Kenny in Two Shows

posted in: Member News and Events

Patricia Kenny is part of a group exhibition, Twelve + One Women in Colour curated by Lucia De Marinis at Preston Square, 347 Preston Street, Ottawa.

Opening reception is January 29, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Curator’s note: “This show was inspired by “The Women of Abstract Expressionism”, held at the Denver Museum of Art in 2016 and the Palm Springs Art Museum in 2017. It motivated me to assemble the work of my painting mentorship students of the past decade, all of whom happen to be women. They are passionately devoted to the art of painting, each one manifesting a unique personal voice that reflects the visceral, tactile and colour-driven aspects of painting. All are graduates of the Ottawa School of Art Fine Arts Diploma Program.” – Lucia De Marinis


Patricia’s second current show is at the Blackburn Library, and is called Wilderness Within.

From the Media Release:

The Blackburn Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of acrylic mixed media paintings by Patricia Kenny. Patricia explores transformative experiences universal to the human condition, interwoven in our lives as life-altering events. Influenced by her experiences, with materiality and spontaneity in process, she expresses in vibrant, surrealistic and abstract works themes of vulnerability, resilience and rebirth.

This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage and support local artists in their community as well as engaging with the Blackburn Library.
