Patrick Cosgrove: Farms of Yolo County

Viewpoint Photographic Art Center
2015 J Street
Sacramento, CA 95811

Patrick Cosgrove’s art is born of an emotional engagement with the beauty of California. His aim is to interpret and make tangible, meditations upon the visual richness of where he has come to live after growing up as a rootless Midwesterner, a corporate brat shuttled from town to town, rooted nowhere. He has now traversed the Bay Area, Southern, and Northern California, and the Central Valley countless times and has been in love with this abounding topography for over 40 years. The undulating farmland, the incessant movement along the shoreline, and the mountainsides both rocky and verdant all yield a serenity from having arrived at a place he was always intended to be.
