overview

Patricia Peters is an accomplished artist. Throughout her work, there is a recurring concern for the power inherit in all women. She believes that all women are beautiful and should be celebrated. Consequently, her sculptures honor women of all sizes and shapes. In her “Joyous Women” collection, Patricia expresses the fantastic energy and movement of the various women caught in clay. “Joyous Women” clearly reflects her passion for women in the midst of transformation. Another theme apparent in her work is the need for friendship and family. In “Family Circle”, for example, one can see the curvilinear lines, which embrace and intertwine the figures, and gives rise to feelings of warmth, intimacy, and the playful nature of families.

about the artist

After growing up in New York, Patricia Peters lived in New Jersey, working as an art instructor for several years. She enjoyed encouraging her students to experiment with their projects. Students often commented that she was a competent and nurturing teacher. During her years as an instructor in Fine Arts, Patricia’s own paintings and sculptures were often selected for various prizes. For many years, she was both a painter and a sculptor, before she decided to pursue her sculpture full time. After staying on the East Coast for most of her life, Patricia moved to South Florida, where she immediately became an important member of the artistic community in the Palm Beach area.

Patricia loves both abstract as well as realistic interpretations of the human form. Much of her work is finished after using mixed media. For example, in her “Woman’s Torso” a hammer is used to add the texture and the finish used multiple glazes. Some of her pieces are high-fired, some are low-fired, and some are Raku. Each piece tells its own story.

Her clay and bronze sculptures can be viewed currently in several gallery exhibitions in the Palm Beach area. In addition, Patricia is a founding member of the Clay Glass Metal and Stone Cooperative. She actively works with organization to showcase various artists and make art available to the local community. Her sculptures have been purchased by several private buyers. Patricia Peters has been a member of the Palm Beach Cultural council as well, and is passionate about the awareness of the connection between art and community.
