PAINTING WITH THE MAHONY GROUP

Painting with the Mahony Group: 2012-2015

There's a quote on Pat Mahony's studio wall that reads "Ever tried? Ever failed? No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better." This bit of advice from Samuel Beckett perfectly encapsulates the Mahony Group experience for me. What started as an informal group of artists wanting to paint from a live model turned into six years of a weekly artists' "salon" and a major group show at the Sacramento Temporary Contemporary Gallery. In 2011 Pat Mahony opened her art studio to gather some of Sacramento's most accomplished artists: Boyd Gavin, Marcy Friedman, Fred Dalkey, Meech Miyagi, Jian Wang and as many guest artists as room permitted. Each artist's unique aesthetic, arts education, and experience fueled a supportive group dynamic that made for lively conversation on contemporary and historical art. I had the incredible privilege of working with the Mahony Group from its conception until I moved to Portland, Oregon in 2016.
