Patricia Richardson Logie: A Retrospective
September 5 – October 7, 2013
In the Eve Smart Gallery, a retrospective of paintings by Patricia Richardson Logie. Paintings with figures, landscapes and portraits from the Estate of this very accomplished Sunshine Coast Artist.
Between 1970 and 1983, Logie painted in London, England, where she attended Sir John Cass College and exhibited extensively during that time with The Cass Group, The Royal Society of Portrait Painters, The Society of Women Artists and The Pastel Society. During that time she also exhibited in Canada with the Federation of Canadian Artists and The Society of Women Artists in 1979. She also taught portraiture at the Federation and the University of British Columbia.
In 1983 Patricia turned her energies to Canada and started the series ‘Chronicles of Pride’, consisting of thirty-one paintings, a truly Canadian project concerning the contributions being made to society by contemporary Canadian Aboriginals. Through various circumstances, she came to the belief that it was her responsibility as an artist to show Aboriginal people in their true light. In 1990 her book Chronicles of Pride was published and in 1991 the Teacher’s Resource Guide was published to accompany the book into the schools along with the video directed by Loretta Todd.
This Gibsons BC non-profit art gallery was proud to show these very accomplished works from the estate of the artist.
