Pat Musick

3D sculpture artist, Pat Musick, (MA and PhD from Cornell) has been creating paintings, sculptures and drawings for more than four decades. Her works are in more than 50 museums.Her environmental sculpture is described by Dr. Don Bacigalupi, Director of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas where her site specific sculpture “The Place Where They Cried” is permanently installed:

“Within each of Pat Musick's refined constructions, the viewer finds the artist using all the tools at her disposal to create a sublime recipe—culture and nature; man and the earth, forever and inextricably linked—for extraordinary beauty.”

Musick’s work is in permanent collections across the United States and is represented by the Benini Galleries and Sculpture Ranch in Johnson City, Texas, the Edgewater Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont and MK Fine Art in Andover, New Hampshire

The inspiration for this bronze sculpture was a sycamore tree. Dr. Musick's work is bonded to and created with stone, wood and natural elements combined with steel and bronze.

For all of my life (since I was four), I have made art. Using my hands to create artwork is a privilege and a joy. If the art has a sense of peace...a zen feeling, then I have succeeded in my desire to make work that is harmonious and whole.

In order to achieve that goal, the art must be experienced. This website will provide that encounter and introduces you to my sculpture, paintings and drawings that span a forty year period. You will be able to see from whence I came, the changes over time and where I am going today. There has been much growth. I began as a painter and transitioned to wall sculpture, then free standing works. Over the years, I have retained my interest in two dimensions by making works on paper. The art moved from expressionistic to abstract to conceptual and has undergone a steady reduction to simpler elements and media.

The materials I use are stone, steel, wood, canvas and kozo paper and beeswax. Stone, wood, and beeswax reflect the natural world and steel, canvas and paper, the human. My artistic goal is to express the relationship between mankind and the environment and the tensions we exert upon each other. I search for resolution and reconciliation. I find it in the process of rebirth and renewal. From the natural world process of regeneration, I have learned that from adversity comes the chance for new beginnings.

I make both large and small, indoor and outdoor sculpture and works on paper. My work is represented in the permanent collections of over fifty museums and public spaces in the country. I have MA and PhD degrees from Cornell University and I am the author of four books...Musick.
