Patz Fowle of Hartsville, SC, Is Having A Busy Spring

April 17, 2012

On Apr. 28, from 10am-4pm, Fowle will participate in the Congaree Arts Festival at the SC State Museum in Columbia, SC, held on the grounds of the SC State Museum. She’ll have lots of her clay friends available to be purchased.


Whimsical Mystery Tour

Two of Fowle’s sculptures were chosen for the 2012 South Carolina Palmetto Hands Juried Exhibition presented during the 2012 North Charleston Arts Festival, hosted by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department. The Palmetto Hands Exhibition will be at the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston, SC, from May 5-12, 2012.


Palmetto Sprout

The book Patz Fowle in Progress was just published by Black Creek Arts Council in Hartsville, SC. Here’s what was written about it.

South Carolina artist Patz Fowle is no stranger to having images of her work published in text books or having her drawings used as illustrations for children’s books. She has even written her own children’s book, Remember When available on (www.Amazon.com).

Fowle can now add having a book about her unique clay handbuilding technique, the Patz Process, and the evolution of her artistic inspiration to her long list of accomplishments. Patz Fowle in Progress just arrived at the Black Creek Arts Center and copies of the book are headed to each public school library in Darlington County, SC.

Patz Fowle in Progress came about after Fowle completed an artist residency at each school in Darlington County during the 2010-11 school year. “One of the aims of the book is to show local young people that successful, practicing artists live and work in their communities,” said Fowle. “What better way than to show them than a book about an artist that they know and have worked with.”

Patz Fowle in Progress contains images of Fowle’s works from the 1980s up to some of her most recent, including her sculpture of famed topiary artist Pearl Fryar and painting of the multi-talented painter and performer Ilona Smithkin. Additionally, the book tells the story of Fowle’s inspiration for her clever clay creations and shows the artist at work on many of her whimsical sculptures.

The book was published by Black Creek Arts Council, which, along with the Darlington County School District through grants from the South Carolina Arts Commission, funded the artist residencies Fowle completed in 2010-11. Black Creek Arts Council’s Sub granting Program, which provided assistance for this project, is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission, the John & Susan Bennett memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

To get your copy of Patz Fowle in Progress, contact the Black Creek Arts Center by e-mail at (bartscounc@aol.com) or call 843/332-6234 or Patz Fowle at (patzfowle@yahoo.com).
