Pat Hart is a local artist who has lived in the Hudson Valley for 15 years. As a child growing up in northern Michigan, her favorite ways to play involved drawing, painting, cutting things out, pasting them together, sticking toys, beads, and other found objects into clay, sand and snow, and otherwise creating images and structures for the sheer joy of it.
Pat put her art supplies away and earned her Master’s Degree in Speech/Language Pathology. Not to be denied, however, artistic pursuits continued to surface over the years in her work with children and adults with severe communication disorders, where art emerged as a tool to stimulate their self-expression.
See Pat's display in our Rhinebeck location now through the end of April. All pieces are for sale and would make wonderful gifts!
