About the Artist
Patrick Anderson studied at Vesper George School of Art where he was taught by instructors, John Terelak, Robert Douglas Hunter, Robert Comier, Paul Rahilly. He went on to study studio and plien air with John Terelak, at his hometown in Rockport. Patrick's style is contemporary realism with strong painterly qualities. Many of his cityscapes may owe a nod to Edward Hopper.
Patrick has been an artists member with Copley Society since 2004. In 2007 he had a one-man show at the Gallery 800 in Weston, MA, and Curious Liquids Café Gallery in Boston in 2001.
Patrick was born in Norwood, MA and raised in Walpole. He took up painting at an early age and has continually persisted to develop his skills. In the lives of most artist, difficulties can take place at crucial times of their careers. As in Patrick's situation, in 1976 he had to meet family responsibilities and went into family business as an electrician and had to place his artwork to the side.
In 1993 he left the trade and reconnected himself again with his passion and moved to Gloucester where he painted feverishly and once again claimed his endeavor to painting, becoming the most important aspect in his life. In 2004 Patrick received the Sagendorph Award given by the Copley Society, Boston, MA.
Patrick is hard working, disciplined and strives to be a master of capturing an amazing light in his paintings. He has been mentioned in the beacon hill times and published in the International Artists Publishing Inc.
His painting "Neighbors", oil on canvas, was acquired by the Cahoon Museum of American Art, Cotuit, MA, in 2010 for an exhibition on "how American artists of the past and present have used the window". Patrick's artwork can be found in homes of locals in the Beacon Hill, Boston area. Collected nationally and internationally, purchased by tourist, attained by corporate and loyal patrons. Possessed by aficionados of his small works, whom say that his Boston's cityscapes and scenarios capture a "romantic nostalgic feeling" to them.
His latest painings can be viewed at the CoSo gallery, Copley Society of Art and the Bowdoin Street Studio by appointment only.
