In addition to her vivid images of local landscapes and urban images, her work focuses on the beauty and charm of Oak Park – as one of her greatest aspirations is to help her community overcome the negative influences embedded there. Patris celebrates the renaissance of Oak Park and invites others to discover the treasures of Sacramento’s earliest established suburb.
On July 14, 2012, Patris relocated her studio, gallery and art center from the corner of 12th and S in downtown Sacramento into the Oak Park Historic District to become a major player in the flourishing revitalization efforts underway there. Now the Patris Studio and Gallery- Northern California’s premier art venue for art classes, life drawing/painting sessions, art exhibits and much more– is a flourishing mecca for artists and art lovers from near and far, from beginner to professional, from young to old, to come together in the creative art spirit.

About Curtis Fest
Curtis Fest returns to William Curtis Park on Sunday, Aug. 27. More than 60 artisans are expected to show their work at the 11th annual event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the north end of the park under the beautiful tree canopy. Curtis Fest has become a Sacramento favorite, and many premier artists have joined the lineup this year.
This free, public event includes food from award winning chef Keith Breedlove of the Culinerdy Cruzer food truck along with delicious street tacos from the Turnt Up food truck. John Merriman, Dianna and the Cherry Kings and the Ranell Carpenter Band will perform.
An expanded petting zoo returns this year as well as the climbing station, and the children’s fairy. Curtis Fest will be followed by Music in the Park from 6-8 p.m.
