Artist of the Month: Pat Orr

The Dunmore Senior painting group has been very fortunate to have Pat Orr join us from Greentown.  “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night,” like the letter carriers, she consistently traveled to paint with our class and entertain us with her stories.

An accomplished artist, Pat started painting in high school and continued studying art throughout her life. She joined the Painting Group at the Dunmore Hub in 2016 and has so enjoyed “the comradery and support” of the group. 

Pat feels that, “Jill Swersie, our instructor is a very talented artist and wonderful teacher…Jill is a good friend to all of us.”

She enjoys painting her family, especially her grandchildren. Her featured painting: “Ocean City,” is of two of her granddaughters, who are sisters, on a family vacation.  

“The Activity Hub provides us a warm and welcoming environment to grow artistically.  We even have an art show there each year.”

The art class is saddened that Pat will soon be leaving us to move to Connecticut, closer to her family, and wish her much happiness with her move.
