Solo exhibit at Center of the Arts

Trees by Patricia Eckstrom

Leaves by Patricia Eckstrom

Patricia Eckstrom’s solo exhibit, Under the Surface, opened on Saturday, Sept. 9 at Springville Center for the Arts. A trained printmaker inspired by the intricate patterns outside her door, she creates multi-media pieces that reflect the feeling that exists “under the surface of everyday life.” The exhibit displays layered pieces of trees, fish and leaves, constructed primarily of paper.

Two “Under the Surface” events will occur at the Arts Center on Saturday, Sept.

23. Pat Eckstrom will lead a workshop where participants will create their own multi-media leaf piece. After collecting leaves outside, the class will follow Eckstrom’s process to manipulate paper with color, shape, and texture into similar leaves, using traditional art supplies to achieve very nontraditional results. This workshop will take place 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

in the Vacanti Classroom at Springville Center for the Arts. Register by calling 5929038. Cost is $25 or $22 if you are an Arts Center member.

Later that Saturday, the center will host a free artist’s reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Olmsted Gallery.

Refreshments will be served and you will have the opportunity to look at Eckstrom’s work and speak to the artist about her process. Her work includes pieces ranging from 3-feet wide to smaller giftsized pieces.
