West Virginia Living features Pat Cross Art.

When Pat Cross received a call to be interviewed for a feature in West Virginia Living magazine, she promptly accepted. “I see West Virginia as a wonderful place to live and to operate my art business,” says Pat Cross. “Also, I want to be a part of the movement to update the public perception of this Appalachian Mountain State,” she adds.

A lot has changed in West Virginia since the birth and childhood of Pat Cross here, and especially since her decades away as she attended college and grew her fine art business across the country. “For one, I notice a rapidly growing population of artists,” she observes, “Many of my creative peers here rival the talent of some of the nation’s best I’ve known in Florida, Colorado, Utah, California, and the Pacific Northwest,” she adds. Pat Cross tells of the compelling landscape, moderate climate, ample breathing room, and strong family ties that make West Virginia so, well, liveable.

In this feature article, West Virginia Living shows a couple of oil paintings by Pat Cross inspired by the West Virginia landscape, Amazing Graze (now at Tamarack Marketplace), and Bearded Beauty (shown at the annual juried exhibit at The Culture Center in the Capitol Complex).

The West Virginia Living magazine readership reaches over one million with many of those living in other parts of the world and who either travel here, have family here, have lived here or see West Virginia as a candidate for their next home.
