Art in our Showroom
BVW Jewelers would like to welcome you to come to our showroom and explore the works of Patti Christensen Woodard.
Patti Christensen Woodard’s paintings take us on a visual journey of floral impressions and semi-abstracted interpretations of organic forms in an expressive, decorative style. Veiled layers of color, visual strokes, and texture are distinctive hallmarks of her work. Ms. Christensen Woodard is a life long artist, Nevadan, and graduate from the University of Nevada, Reno who worked in the 9 to 5 world until 2000. Patti is a part time instructor for the Continuing Education Department of Truckee Meadows Community College happily teaching classes in drawing, beginning pastel techniques, and introductory experimental pen and ink. She also teaches privately in her home and studio located in Reno, Nevada.
BVW Gallery features ninety-day exhibitions of established and emerging artists in our Reno, Nevada showroom. We focus on showing dynamic visual art with a strong focus on local artists whenever possible. We believe that art is integral to cultural values, and continued growth of social awareness. Therefore, a percentage of the commission the gallery collects when an artist’s work sells goes to a Greater Northern Nevada community charity.
