From her birthplace of Chicago, through 20 years in Atlanta, GA, and now in Goodyear, AZ, Patricia Bohannon has left an indelible mark on the various art communities she’s been a part of. Having first been introduced to the world of art in elementary school by a neighbor, and honing that interest later in High School, she knew one day she’d be a painter and sculptor, and has been successful creating with paints, glass, fiber clay, ceramic, metal and mixed media over the years. She graduated with high honors from Chicago State University in 1987. Over her astonishing 60-year career, she’s participated in countless individual and group exhibitions, taught Art in the Chicago Public School system and the Fulton County Board of Education, and received innumerable
honors and awards. Most recently celebrated as 2022’s Extraordinary Woman of Color this year during Black History Month, and featured on ABC15’s Sonoran Living, this mother of two, married for 39 years, widowed since 2000, at 83 years young, is not slowing down. Her work is currently on display at The Sedona Art Center. Patricia Bohannon uses her gift to inspire and lift the social consciousness of her viewers, and says: “What sustains me as I create, is my passion and desire to connect with people and share through visual expression, historical information on the unfamiliar.”
