Patricia Erickson

Patricia Erickson

Born in Philadelphia, PA, Patricia is a self-taught artist. Her paintings are characterized by faceless people, rich colors and interesting shapes. When asked about the faceless images Erickson replied, “Whose face would I put? The paintings are deeply and profoundly about us all. The people in my paintings make lives, truly graceful lives, out of the very simple things. Out of watching, observing, and protecting each other. That is all we know about the rather private personalities that I paint. People going about the small business of life.”

John Mominee

John Mominee

Born in Evansville, IN and earned his BA from the University of Evansville as well as his MFA from Southern Illinois University.
