Meet the Artist: Pat Horner, abstract painter

Pat Horner’s work is in numerous private and public collections including the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Center of Photography at Woodstock.  She has exhibited in galleries in New York, Paris, Seattle, Houston and Minneapolis and recently has shown her work at the Guggenheim Museum, and the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in New York.  Her work has been published in magazines, newspapers and books worldwide.  With a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design and a year of Graduate School for fine art at the University of Minnesota, Horner has worked in photography, film and video before becoming a collage artist and painter who is now combining several media together.  She has lived in Woodstock since 1994 and serves on the board of directors at the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum as President.  Her work can be seen at  Horner often references calligraphy and mark making in an attempt to organize the dabs of paint, lines, drips and flow to make visual memories, retaining traces of familiar aspects, explaining nature and exploring the truth that is beyond the visible.
