Patricia Thornton

Adult Education Program Director & Printshop Manager

Over the last eight years Patricia worked as an artist, art instructor and curator for local art venues. As a local working artist Patricia has shown in numerous venues throughout Montana, Washington state and the San Francisco bay area. Primarily working in mixed media, Patricia's artwork shows her experience in traditional art forms, as well as experimental techniques in painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. Patricia's love for a vast array of materials and techniques is born from her interested in the diversity of expression and ideologies. Patricia creates ZACC programs that serve our rich, diverse, and vital artist community.

Patricia's Passion Outside the ZACC
Patricia's artwork is as inquisitive and playful as her personality. Her artwork features kind, recurring characters like "Manny" who beckon with a smile for you to journey through her patterned, colorful, and symbolic work.
