Drawing Kimono
drawings on paper—reconstructed
72 x 51 in.

“What do you get when you combine a compulsive spate of Asian-esque sewing with the necessity of making art? Old artwork reconstructed as kimonos.”

Patricia Otto has exhibited worldwide for over three decades and has artwork in the Collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts Archive in Washington, D.C. As an active member of ARC Gallery since 1996, Pat is currently president of ARC and helping to take the women’s co-op forward into its 35th year. With a master’s degree in fine arts and another in art therapy, Pat rounds out her artistic career by teaching painting and drawing courses at Truman College and providing clinical art therapy services that focus on women and their creative process.
