moose, there is an experience behind everything I create. That’s the kind of thing I think makes me different.” The fact that they’re living beings is why Griffin loves to capture animals. “They have souls, to me,” she explains. “And that’s part of what I want to communicate.”

artist’s opening reception Thursday, August 11th, 6-9 pm

artist’s workshop for children

Griffin has a strong affinity towards helping viewers connect with the outside world. “You are having a relationship when you paint. A lot of people do not feel connected to the natural world. They feel it’s something to dominate. With my work, I want to even the field. I want them to sense that connection and be able to take it with them. A lot of the stuff that I paint is stuff that I want people to appreciate so that it’s still there, so they might want to protect it too.”

Saturday, August 20th, 2-4 pm Patricia (and her chicken) will teach a drawing class for children. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. $10 per child. Reservations required. (570) 481-4333

The best part about art for Griffin is the enriching experience. She explains, “My favorite thing is the idea of sharing, or possibly enlightening or teaching somebody. It’s absolutely amazing when you hear from someone that they got something from your art. A lot of the things I paint are the norm; I just want people to see it a little differently.”
