Micro-Macro at Bethlem Gallery – 30 March-30 April 2016

An exhibition of artworks by Pat Mear exploring the grandeur and the minutiae of the natural world.

Pat’s work ranges from large-scale canvases to intimate ink drawings, and intuitively explores her interests in both the grandeur and the minutia of the natural world. Her canvases express her love of nature and are frequently balanced with undertones of environmental concerns that hang over our planet and natural resources. “All the world’s a pattern, break it and be crowned or crucified” – Pat Mear.

Opening 26 March, 3 - 5pm
