CURRENT AND UPCOMING
My work can be viewed on ArtMobia.
So thrilled to have organized, with Alexandra Rutsch Brock and Beth Dary, another installment of Among Friends, the “zipper show” this spring at the Clemente Soto Velez Center, 107 Suffolk Street.. May 3–5, 8–12, 12 go 7 pm. The show consists of 238 original works by individual artists all zipped together into one continuous, exuberant whole. Each piece is for sale for $250, with 10% going to the LES Girls Club and 10% to the Clemente Center.
I am donating a piece to Somewhere We Landed, the inaugural benefit for DRAWING ROOMS in Jersey City. The Grand Opening Reception is Saturday May 4, 4 to 7pm and the show runs through 5/11. Each work is for sale for $200. 926 Newark Ave # T107, Jersey City, NJ.
My work on panel was featured in a wonderful three-person show, Chameleon, at 490 Atlantic Gallery in downtown Brooklyn. March 9 through April 14. Curated by Jim Edwards, the show also features Sean Grandits and Betty Kord.

Thrilled to announce that I curated my first show: Studio Mates, at Front Room Gallery, 48 Hester Street, LES. The show explored the creative dialogue between two artists sharing studio space. Other artists include Amy Hill, Mark Masyga and Christopher Lowry Johnson, Thomas Broadbent and Kelly Parr, Janice Caswell and Wendy Small, Alex Gingrow and Jessie Henson. December 5–January 6. There was a closing reception including “Studio Couples Therapy” with Dr. Lisa Levy SP, on January 6 from 3 to 6. Additional works by the artists can be seen in Studio Mates Online.
I’m honored to be featured in Etty Yaniv’s blog Art Spiel! “Patricia Fabricant — Weaving a Fluctuating Self”
One of my Icons was included in Civil Discourse which opened this November 10, at the Kibbee Gallery in Atlanta, GA, curated by Jaynie Crimmins. Civil Discourse creates a visual dialogue challenging us to move beyond the historical and current divisiveness of red state/blue state politics and the turmoil our country is presently experiencing. NYC and Atlanta artists, each pursuing a studio practice that connects in surprising ways, shift the present angry and finger-pointing discussions to one that finds common ground. Unbeknownst to these artists, the works they create are in conversation with each other. Many works are not mirror images and their relationship to one another might not be immediately evident. Civil Discourse connects these artists through imagery, treatment of subject matter, materials, technique or concept and celebrates the collective dialogue discovered in their art.
My Venn diagrams series was featured in Shelf Life: History, Biography and Fame, at the Institute Library in New Haven, CT, curated by Martha Willette Lewis. This show featured biographies from their historic collection of books, as well as art relating to specific people in history, portraits and self- portraits. Sept. 29 through December 30. We got some nice press in New Haven Arts, Daily Nutmeg and in the New Haven Independent!
I had a piece in a benefit for Planned Parenthood at M. David & Co, 56 Bogart St., in Bushwick, on December 21.
I discussed my work at Trans•cen•der on November 27 at 7 pm. Temporary Storage, 119 Ingraham, Bushwick. Hosted by Sharilyn Neidhardt, other presenters included Nancy Baker, Jacob Ouilette, Cibele Vieira, Lisa Levy, Mark Stockton and Cindy Stockton-Moore.
I had an abstract work in a group show at Arete Venue in Greenpoint. Opened Sept. 14 and continued through October 6. Curated by Fay Ku. 67 West Street.
One of my abstractions was included in RE: RE: Pattern, at La Bodega Gallery, 695 5th Avenue, in Park Slope. La Bodega Gallery is pleased to present "RE: RE: patterns", a group exhibition featuring artists who have aesthetically or conceptually incorporated patterns and/or repetition into their art practices. All artists in the exhibition work with patterns in a multitude ways, utilizing an array of techniques and mediums to create works that explore a myriad of subject matter. This exhibit focuses on stylistic varieties of repeating art elements that drive toward movement, harmony and unity. Opened September 7, 7 to 10, ran through Sept. 30.

Curated by Sirikul Pattachote and featuring artists Elena Chestnykh, Patricia Fabricantt, Anki King, Monique Mantell, Sirikul Pattachote, Kamonchanok Phon-ngam, Hazel Lee Santino, Prang Vejjajiva, Melanie Vote. The group exhibition puts forward ten female artists whose artwork express deeply personal thoughts, emotional energies, and societal commentary. Through a variety of works the show examines the role and representation of women in contemporary society. Viewed as a whole, the exhibition exemplifies how various forms of art making allow for nonverbal communication on a deeply personal level, communications that are often more powerful or truthful than the verbal or the written. The works create a dialogue between the viewer and the artwork that is filtered through uniquely female experiences and perspectives, inviting viewers to question modern social and political landscapes. May 23 through June 17, at 131 Chrystie Street, NY. Interview with me on my work in the show: https://sfaprojects.com/interview-patricia-fabricant/
Beyond thrilled with Among Friends, a group show I co-organized with Beth Dary and Alexandra Rutsch Brock. Inspired by the Robert Rauschenberg artwork "Hiccups", seen last summer in the "Among Friends" exhibition at the MoMA, AMONG FRIENDS reflects and responds to the strength and illumination we find through art, friendship and community. The show consisted of 132 pieces of 9 x 7" handmade paper, each worked on by a different artist, zipped together into one continuous, exuberant piece. Each individual work was for sale for $250 with 10% going to Planned Parenthood. We sold 95, raising over $3000 for PP! The installation was described as a group hug. It exceeded our wildest expectations.

I had a self-portrait in Fight or Flight, at The Painting Center, 547 w 27. Opens June 22. "This exhibition is about the practice of making art during tumultuous times. Some artists express their personal responses to world events, while others intentionally ignore what is going on and make art that becomes a refuge from the turbulence surrounding them. Looking back to specific artists’ reactions to unsettled times, there are Picasso’s Guernica and Gerhard Richter’s cycle of paintings October 18, 1977. On the other hand, Matisse created his joyful collaged paper cutouts for his Jazz series during World War II in France, and Jackson Pollock’s poured paintings were created in the nineteen fifties during the McCarthy era. Creativity can feed off the inspiration of current events and/or a personal vision." Curated by Barbara Marks, Patricia Spergel Berman and Alix Bailey.

In other words, it will consist of pieces by a broad array of Bushwick-familiar, if not exactly Bushwick-based, artists, as well as indications about where you can see more of their work.
