Watercolors by Patricia Mroczka
Sinsinawa Art Gallery Features Nature,
Sinsinawa Art Gallery presents “With Every Leaf a Miracle” from Sept. 1 through Oct. 11. The gallery is available for viewing 8 a.m.-7 p.m. daily. Please check our website (sinsinawa.org/moundcenter/) for current COVID protocols. Artist Patricia Mroczka will display her watercolor and pen and ink art created on 100-percent rag paper—hot and cold press—and Daniel Smith watercolors. She begins wet-on-wet, then layers watercolor for depth and richness of color, then completes her painting by using her form of doodling. Mroczka began her love of art at St. Clara Academy, Sinsinawa, Wis., while taking four years of art classes from Sister Dolora Salter, OP (1892–1977). She has since studied art education at the Art Institute of Chicago and taken art classes from prominent artists in the Midwest. Her fondness for architecture also began at St. Clara and led her to an associate degree in architecture. Mroczka has incorporated this into her artwork for the past 30-plus years, inspired by the quaint homes and downtown area of her home in Downers Grove, Ill. She also draws inspiration from gardening.
