Member Spotlight

Patricia Vivod

What inspired you to pursue a career in art?

The small rural high school I attended had no art program. Jackie Trainer, mother of one of my classmates, and a local artist arranged an after school oil painting workshop my junior year. To my surprise, I was invited to participate. I enjoyed some success with my work in the class; but more importantly I realized almost immediately and with a great deal of pleasure, not to mention relief (because I had been wrestling with what to do with my life), that a career could be made as a teacher of art. I was impressed with Trainer’s painting talent as well as her facility for teaching. I observed her closely regarding how she helped me and the rest of the students understand the process of painting. By the time the twelve week course ended I was determined I would pursue a degree in art education. I left teaching after 25 good years because I found the attraction of printmaking (which I’d studied over many years during summer workshops) too strong to resist. As I worked on my MFA at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, I took an elective in surface design from Luanne Rimel. An assignment in her class led to my experiment in organic printing on textiles and I’ve never looked back.

What motivated you to become a member of Art Saint Louis?
 
In my last year of grad school in 2003 I learned of the Fiber Focus competition held in conjunction with Innovations in Textiles. It was the first textile related juried show I’d ever entered. On the day of my thesis oral presentation to my faculty committee, I learned that one of my large composted and rusted silks had been accepted into the show—a real feather in my cap. To my surprise, I received an award of excellence and a cash prize for the work in the exhibit and on the day of the opening reception, I learned that someone had purchased the work.  I joined Art Saint Louis shortly after that and have been a member ever since.
