Pate Conaway: Mixed Media Artist


Pate Conaway
Not only is Pate one of the talented artists featured in my book, The Fine Art of Crochet ~ Innovative Works by 20 Contemporary Artists, but he is a friend. Pate's gentle and endearing personality ensures that he makes friends wherever he goes.

Chapter 4: Pate Conaway

His method, installation and performance, draws Pate's viewers in as they try to comprehend what he is doing and how he is doing it. Using commonly found materials, he plays upon those looks of recognition as he cleverly transforms his mateials into their final state of artistic wonder!

Not much time is left, but I invite you to attend his interactive exhibit September  27, 1PM-5PM or September 28 (closing reception) from 12 PM-4PM at the Roman Susan Art Space, 1224 W. Loyola, Chicago, Illinois. You'll be glad you went!

Recently my chapter of the Crochet Guild of America invited Pate as a guest artist and special gift to the members during our celebration of the 20th anniversary of our chapter. If you would like to have a unique presentation and amazing glimpse at the possibilities of crochet, invite Pate to your next event.

Having spent the month of September at the gallery with this evolving installation, Pate was able to document his experience with photos and words on his blog. Do keep in mind that his chapter in The Fine Art of Crochet tells the story of his artistic inspiration and would make a lovely holiday gift for any artist or crocheter!
