Patricia Waring Sherwood received an MFA from Mills College in Oakland in 1974. She has painted in California since 1955 and has taught in the California College system for thirty years. She has been on the boards of the California Print Society and San Francisco Women Artists.
Sherwood’s work has been widely collected and included in private and corporate collections, including those of the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, Bank of America in San Francisco, Stanford University, and the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts at Stanford University. They have also been displayed at the San Jose Museum, the Euphrat Museum, the Triton Museum, Institute of Contemporary Art in San Jose, the Pratt Institute, the Boston Museum of Fine Art, and the Columbia Museum of South Carolina. Her works were featured in a solo artist show in 2002 at the Triton Museum in Santa Clara.
I see art as a vital symbolic language,” the artist says of her work. “I hope to reach people, to have someone say ‘Yes, I have felt that; I recognize that.’ We share common experiences of the human condition and I hope to trigger these remembrances with my work.
