Imagined and Discovered

The Art of Patty Flauto

Local artist Patty Flauto will host an exhibition of her work at the River Gallery in Rocky River, with an opening reception on August 13th from 3:00-7:00 p.m. Artists proceeds will go directly to Breakthrough Public Schools, one of the highest- performing networks of free, public charter schools in Ohio.

A singular intention is behind this exhibit. It is my belief that a strong society starts with a strong beginning. How can I help our community of young people? This show is my answer.


There is alchemy in abstract art. To provoke thoughts about art that is visible yet incomprehensible has magic unto itself. Inspiration for my work is derived from a perceptual landscape. Color, shape and line create depth and movement. Textures and layered surfaces are influenced by extensive study of textiles and patterns.


Children have tremendous imaginations and can discover, through education, their own alchemy.
