SITE Santa Fe invites you to celebrate Patrick McFarlin with a pop-up exhibition & revival of Pat’s Downtown Club where you can sign up to sit for a portrait painting June 5 - June 8!
Over twenty years ago, SITE presented a portrait exhibition by Patrick McFarlin. Over the course of several months, the Santa Fe community dropped in to the galleries at SITE where Patrick held open studio hours, during which he painted portraits of all who wished to sit for him. John Marion, Juliet Meyers, Rob Coffland, and Bunny Conlon were just some of the Santa Fe art world figures that stopped by and sat for Patrick.
This June, on the eve of Patrick’s 80th birthday, we honor him and reprise his beloved portrait studio and Pat’s Downtown Club!
Tuesday, June 4, 5-6:30 pm
