Main Street Arts in Martinez presents “Confluence” featuring the wonderful artwork created by Patsy Taylor’s students, past and present. The exhibition runs through April 2nd to 29th, with the reception April 4th from 4 to 7 p.m. at the gallery, 613 Main Street in Martinez.
Patsy Taylor is an artist living in the East Bay. She has a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and has been teaching since 2008 both privately and in community programs. She paints in the studio and outdoors.
As a teacher Ms. Taylor believes in establishing foundations and then, from there, allowing creativity to flow. With this in mind she teaches with a focus on individual development and exploration.
As an artist she has been mostly focused on landscape painting in oils. Expression of her love for the natural world and interest in connections with life has seen her work recently diverge into a different style with more intimate content. She intends to continue on this path with her painting.
Patsy has been teaching in the East Bay for many years and has been a great influence on a generation of painters. We look forward to this talented group.
Main Street Arts was founded in 2016 by several of the Martinez Gallery Co-op members, in partnership with other local artists. Our goal is to make Martinez an important part of the Bay Area art scene by showing and promoting the best in local contemporary art.
We offer a wide range of collectible fine art, from fused glass, to photography, and paintings. It’s also a great destination to find the perfect gift, with affordable prints and other small items.
Hours: Open 11 am – 5 pm, Wednesday through Saturday; 10 am – 2 pm on Sundays
Note, the Martinez Farmers Market is open year-round every Sunday from 10 am – 2 pm.
The Martinez art scene is undergoing an exciting revitalization! Every 3rd Saturday of the month, Artcelerator puts on Art Beat in downtown Martinez. Main Street Arts will be open until 9 p.m. on Art Beat nights.
