Patricia Palermino Studio, LLC

As an avid enthusiast of all aspects of the Del Ray culture, I hope to share with and to contribute to the healthy and thriving Del Ray life-style. As an Alexandria folk-artist, I have enjoyed being apart of Art-On-The-Avenue over the years and wish to the continued success to all members of this established, safe community, especially those engaged with Del Ray Business Association, for which I am honored to be a part, through my annual membership commitment.

Folk art has been a tradition throughout the world; it is referred to as naïve art in Europe and peasant painting in England and Asia. After the War of 1812, American folk art became strongly focused on pride and patriotism in the United States and has blossomed ever since. Folk art is portrayed as the art of the people, for the people and by the people because it’s the art that is quintessentially America. I am an American folk artist like the folk artists of earlier centuries. I am self-taught and my paintings are based on narrative using symbolism and humor to tell the story of the painting. The majority of my American folk art paintings and prints portray the American landscape with a strong sense of color, patriotism and locale.
