WCA Peninsula Meeting Notes - featuring PAT KEEFE
Pat Keefe gave a dynamic artist presentation at the WCA Peninsula March meeting. She began her artistic endeavors in painting and bronze casting. Initially, Pat attended college to study nursing but later advanced to art therapy.
A highlight of Pat’s presentation was her story about a door and it’s frame that she towed around in her Jeep Wagoner to make photographs at many varied locations around the Bay. They included the DeYoung Museum and the Pacific Coast beaches. The door project became an integral part of her college art studies and a sculptural exhibit. This portfolio was an inspiration to those in attendance.
One of Pat’s other art projects were life-size paper dolls that she constructed from objects that tell her story. Luckily for our members, besides having wonderful pictures of the full size dolls, she had a set of the original small size paper dolls to pass around for each person to handle and to admire the feminine perspective. (See inset picture.)
As a fellow artist, I came away with a message from Pat’s presentation. Anything is possible. We want to let our artistic journeys flow from within ourselves.
