On January 1, 2017, Patti Jacquemain, a Santa Barbara Artist, began a one-year project in which she walked over 325 miles throughout and around the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens. She documented her walks each day in her journal which has been the inspiration for the upcoming exhibition of her artwork Walking through the Seasons (at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden) at the Pritzlaff Conservation Center Gallery. The exhibit will portray her vision of the year, from the subtle changes in weather, the blooming of flowers and plants, wildlife and people encountered. It will feature watercolors and drawings from her journal, augmented with her unique mosaics and woodcut prints of the Garden.

Opening Reception on Saturday, April 7, 4-6pm

Patti Jacquemain, artistPatti Jacquemain was raised on a ranch in Santa Barbara, attended Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara. As a professional artist, Jacquemain had over 30 one-woman shows of her original woodblock prints across the country. Images of her artwork have been distributed nationally and internationally through the publication of greeting cards and calendars. She has written and illustrated four books including two children’s books.

Along with private mosaic commissions, she has created permanent installations in several public institutions including the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, Santa Barbara and Goleta Valley Cottage Hospitals, First Presbyterian Church, Wildling Museum of Art and Nature, and her own Creekspirit garden of art.

Jacquemain’s passion for wildlife and the environment in which they live is well known. In 1997, she founded the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature, presently located in Solvang, CA, and the Creekspirit Wildlife Foundation in Santa Barbara in 2003. Both non-profits are devoted to creating an awareness of our fragile environment and its vanishing wildlife through the development of educational programs and art.

Jacquemain is married to David Gledhill, a retired Colonel in the U.S. Army.
