Searching For Balance In Chaos

Explore the works of Teresina Pavel and Patty Roberts

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

Both artists’ work is inspired by nature and vivid with color, but then each takes a different direction: one toward abstraction, and the other toward surrealism.

Despite this difference, both artists feel that the purpose of art and creativity is to bring order and beauty into the uncertainties of life.
