“Cup of Home”

Artwork and Poetry of Patricia Barnes

August 28 – September 25, 2021
Reception and Book Signing: Saturday, August 28 at 2–5 pm

Color | Ink Studio is presenting a solo exhibition of the artwork of Downriver artist and award-winning poet Patricia Barnes. Her mixed media paintings present a collage of visual elements in a variety of mediums. She is constantly on the lookout for the representation of an object that can be a symbol of something richer than itself when put in partnership or conflict with another.

The exhibition opens with a reception and book signing on Saturday, August 28 at 2–5 pm, which will feature live music and a reading of poetry from Patricia’s book “Cup of Home”. Copies of her book will be available for purchase. The exhibit runs through September 25.
