Drawing Closer: Patricia Schnall Gutierrez

Patricia Schnall Gutierrez

The multidisciplinary work of Patricia Schnall Gutierrez draws its inspiration from a self-referential account of personal memories, situations, and emotions. Using distinct choices of mediums, household objects and materials, she creates an autobiographical account of the every-day, drawing the viewer into an intimate dialogue that often probes questions of gender and sexuality. Through her personal stories, she shares a unique perspective on controversial issues facing contemporary women and society.

Patricia Schnall Gutierrez was born in Buffalo, New York and received a BFA from SUNY Buffalo in1978. After a move to New York City in 1980, she continued her education at the New York Studio School.

In 2007, Schnall Gutierrez relocated to South Florida, where she currently lives and works. In 2011, RPM Projects was established and Schnall Gutierrez came together with filmmaker Rhonda Mitrani and photographer Marina Font to create, what has now become, a large and well respected body of large scale multimedia installations and short films. The independent work of Schnall Gutierrez, as well her work with RPM Projects, has been exhibited in numerous art institutions including MOCA Miami, Naples Museum of Art, Boca Raton Museum of Art, Museum of Florida Art, Appleton Museum, Lowe Art Museum, YAA Museum, Patterson Museum, Burchfield Penney Art Center, MADA New Media, as well as numerous University Exhibitions, Art Fairs, and Galleries in and outside of the United States. Schnall Gutierrez has received numerous artist achievement awards and fellowships over the years and has also been included in private and online auctions.

About Drawing Closer: Collecting at a Distance

In April Girls’ Club introduced a new initiative to sustain creative lives and introduce works by local artists to the public.

While the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19 has shuttered museums, arts organizations, galleries and derailed artists’ income opportunities around the globe, like many, Girls’ Club has decided to take action.

Artists create. We collect.

Girls’ Club is reaching out to our network of artists and seeking submissions of recent artwork for consideration. Works should be made this year, in 2020, and have a retail price of $500-$1000.

For the next 3 months, one work per week will be purchased by Girls’ Club founders, Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz.

Each week, Girls’ Club will highlight the selected artist on social media. Through video interviews, scenes from studio life, sharing the details of other available works, Girls’ Club will promote the careers of artists weathering this unprecedented moment.
