Pacifica artist colors ‘Life’s Rhythm and Blues’

Patty Jones, a Pacifica artist and art instructor , is showing her work in a show called “Life’s Rhythms and Blues” at ARTshare 25 Gallery in San Mateo through the end of the month.

Here’s her reasoning for the exhibit’s title. She says that unconscious and routine acts such as “the heartbeat that pumps our life’s blood but gets little thought” are constantly being interrupted with overpowering rhythms that preoccupy our minds — these “blues” are both visual hues, tints and shades as well as symbolic connotations of hard times, and “moods of longing and of disappointment in goals that seem unattainable.” Despite the difficulties, Jones examines the positive, too. She says, “As blues are woven into the fabric of our lives, we must acknowledge and express these feelings so that we can regain the rhythms that sustain us.”

“Life’s Rhythms and Blues” is on display at 32 West 25th Ave., second floor. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
