Pat Zeitlin is inspired by the interplay of color, deep emotions, and feelings they invoke. She began studying 26 years ago with Farhana Hussein of the College of Art.
With Farhana, she learned drawing and the use of color pencils, water color, and gouache. She then learned oils with Marilyn Wanamaker. Shortly thereafter, she perfected oils, glazing and color theory with Nancy Cheairs.
Most recently, Pat did a workshop with David Kessler. This workshop covered the use of acrylics and abstract technique which brought out the freedom and spontaneity Pat now enjoys in her work.
Pat currently lives in Memphis with her husband, Irving, and their dog, Deuce! She paints in her studio – which was built in their back yard 10 years ago.

Funded through a B’nai Tzedek Grant, a program of the Jewish Foundation of Memphis, and in partnership with Jewish Family Service, this very special exhibition is sure to leave you in awe. It features the works of individuals with special needs ages 12-60 and their experiences in the 6 week art course they took over the summer.
During this 6 week course, they learned different painting techniques and about different famous artists. Each participant completed a number of canvases and learned about art history, technique, about themselves and one another.
Please join us in honoring these individuals and their extraordinary creative capabilities during this exhibition!
