Powerful brush strokes, layers of texture and spontaneous movement all capture the California Contemporary work of artist Patricia Qualls. She believes strongly in the freedom of expression, and understands that by unblocking our internal restraints, we can begin to relinquish the creative comparisons and competition that's limiting our own expressions.
Patricia Qualls Contemporary Art is a hidden gem in Carmel Valley, a beautiful 1200 sq. ft gallery with 15-foot ceilings and a half dozen skylights that bring sunshine to each high-impact painting. The high ceilings are put to use, as much of her work is large-scale, with pieces upward of 6-8 feet. The building also serves double-duty as Patricia's studio space where she can be found most days, as well as a gathering place for old and new friends alike.
Patricia's art is represented by an international collection in Switzerland, and national collections in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Phoenix, Dallas, Vail and many other cities across the country. Her work is also part of the George Blair permanent collection at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento.
