Patricia Heal: Finding Peabrook
The Robin Rice Gallery presents the exhibition by Patricia Heal: Finding Peabrook.
In her ninth solo show at the Robin Rice Gallery, veteran artist Patricia Heal documents her visual narrative of their enchanted home in upstate New York. Hidden within untouched forests lies Peabrook, a babbling brook running through the property. The classic architecture of the house is offset by uniquely quirky interiors designed by the English-born Patricia and her husband, Anthony Cotsifas, which generate an otherworldly existence within the estate. “Peabrook is my Neverland,” Heal states, in reference to J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. “It is a fictional place often described as a metaphor for eternal childhood.” Heal hopes that, with just a visit to the gallery and a little imagination, you, too, can see Peabrook

Sail (Interviewed) works completely with ink to create stunning, surrealistic works of art that show off the exquisite idea of mystery in all it’s full, dark beauty. A brand new series of these pieces will be on display with Sail’s brand new solo show, “Canna Intrat,” which opens Thursday, October 2nd at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, Washington. Sail himself explains the works as asking, “Who are we?” while incorporating ideas such as personal rebirth. If you’re in or around Seattle, this show shouldn’t be missed.
