About the event

Given the explosion of violence we are currently seeing across our Planet, Reversing Falls Sanctuary has chosen the following theme for its Winter-into-Spring Series for 2024:  The Art of Protest: Politics and War. The series will highlight the work of three Maine artists who have devoted much of their lives to working for peace through the arts.

The second gathering on Sunday, April 7th, at 4 pm, will feature the work of Deer Isle artist, Patricia Wheeler. Pat is a mixed media painter. Using a form of imbrication – image and text arranged so that they overlap – she explores concepts of human interaction with the Earth. Her search is spiritual. By conjoining the visual and the verbal, the interrelated symbols encode and transmit meaning. She exhibits widely in the United States and teaches painting intensives throughout the United States and Canada to include Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, CMCA, Oregon College of Art & Craft, Sitka Center for Art & Ecology in Oregon, Penland School of Craft in North Carolina, and Vancouver Island Art Workshops in British Columbia. Patricia has been selected for numerous artist residencies. She graduated from Rutgers University with high honors in studio art. Pat will be showing two videos that she made during her art activism period during the Iraq War.  

She will also be sharing stories about the art exhibit that is currently hung in the gallery within, featuring her war cloth paintings which she made as part of an activist group dedicated to ending the carnage of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The event will be held at Reversing Falls Sanctuary, 818 Bagaduce Road, Brooksville.
