African American Art

Pat Kabore

My art is my inner voice. It is the visual expression of all my extraordinary experiences as an African-American woman and artist. I was greatly impacted by the art I saw when I lived in West Africa. My artist signature is PagA, a Mossi word meaning “women.” I want my art to build bridges and connections between cultures and people. Much of my art is woman-focused, telling and sharing their stories.

 I am an award-winning printmaker and mixed media artist. My work has been exhibited nationally in fine art museums and galleries. My work has been included in the Washington Printmakers Fine Art Print Calendars and in the following collections: Georgetown University, Longwood University, the Detroit Branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, the Federal Reserve, the Library of Congress, the National Museum of Fine Art, the Women's Museum, the Pehl Collection, the Smithsonian, and the University of Miami.

 As much as I love making and creating new artworks, I also have a great love for sharing my talents in the art of printmaking with others, particularly young people, seniors, and disabled persons. I have participated in art events all over the country, including the Paducah Arts Alliance in Kentucky, a one-month artist residency where I worked on a community interactive printmaking program and had a showcase exhibition at the end of the residency. For three years I was artist in residence for the Boys & Girls Clubs in Spartanburg. I did printmaking demonstrations for ten years at the Jubilee Historic Celebration in Columbia, South Carolina. I was also a visiting artist at Yorktown High School in Yorktown, Virginia for a year.

As an artist I want to connect both visually and spiritually with the viewer. If this connection happens I have done my job.
