Born in Refugio, Texas, raised in Goliad, Texas Patricia Compton has been painting since receiving her first art award from the Texas Department of Culture, Austin, at the age of 12.

Compton graduated from the University of North Texas with a BFA in Design.  Upon graduation she won an international design competition which awarded her the funding to move to NYC.  

Her art career began with numerous group shows in Manhattan and Washington D.C including The Pace Collection, Washington.  She also has had solo shows in East Hampton, NY as well as various galleries in Austin, San Antonio, and Alamo Heights, Texas.   The Nave Museum Victoria, Texas will be her first Museum show.

Upon publication in David Carson's "Speak" she decided to make the move out of NYC and "hole up" somewhere to paint a large new body of work.  Goliad seemed like a good choice so Patricia came back home.  

Her painting career literally went to the dogs upon picking up her first stray, mangy dog off the steps of the Presidio La Bahia in Goliad and turned into 20 years of rescue, rehabilitation and the adopting out of hundreds upon hundreds of puppies and dogs to loving and deserving homes.   

She believes her gift for rescue is as much a God given gift as the ability to paint.

She is now beginning a new body of commissioned work and  is determined, with the help of her visionary friends and supporters in rescue to get something built in Goliad reflective of art, dogs, rescue, and education on both subjects. 

The exhibit opens to the public on July 26, and runs through September 8.  Museum hours are Tuesday - Friday from noon to 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 pm, and closed on Mondays.  Admission is always free, but freewill donations are accepted to help us continue to bring fine art to the Crossroads.  Memberships are always available and allow you to attend preview openings and Patron Parties where you get to meet the artist and hear their presentation, and mingle with other members of the Victoria Regional Museum Association.  Visit our website at or www.navemuseum.com  or call us at 361-575-8228 for more information.
