In the Meeting Room: Murals by Patty Ray Avalon
"How It's Made"

Patty Ray Avalon - Artist's Statement

This show is a collection of my first year of wallpaper murals done in January to December 2018. I have been creating art in many ways all of my life. I am a muralist, children's illustrator, painter of Deep Space paintings and printmaker. This year I decided to make the artwork more accessible to more people by having them printed on eco-friendly polyester fabric, made here in the USA.

This exhibit shows the three steps in creating the wallpaper. A black and white drawing, a small-scale color rendering/painting and the full-scale final mural.

They are designed to be in rooms with furniture and children. Designed to be interacted with and used! The colors are seleted to work well with kids' décor and industry fabrics. I hope you enjoy entering the enchanted world of children's murals.
