The artist P. Buckley Moss was asked how long it takes for her to paint a picture. "My whole life," she said. For Pat, it is this lifelong passion and belief that is expressed in her work, giving us a collection of art that is filled with a lifetime of experiences: from her Irish-Italian heritage to her urban art school education, the laughter of her children, and the simplicity of birds flying south for the winter.
As a young mother Pat moved her family south and increasingly found inspiration in the imagery of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, becoming captivated by the life and culture of the Amish and Mennonite people of the area. She embraced the local landscapes, lifestyles, and traditions and felt that the life and culture she was part of held an important message for modern society: live simply and enjoy every moment!
The artistic talent, passion, and vision of P. Buckley Moss is shared in our galleries through an extensive selection of her works and accompanying stories, and the artist enjoys every opportunity to invite visitors to more fully share the beauty and sources of her artistic inspiration. Moss has become a strong advocate for special education groups. Overcoming her own challenges with dyslexia, Pat has become a role model for the learning impaired and has shared her message with special education classes throughout the United States. Events and donations of Moss’ original works and prints to related children’s charities have raised millions of dollars for their causes. The P. Buckley Moss Society was established by a few dedicated collectors in 1987, with a mission to assist and join the artist in her charitable endeavors. The Society has grown to include twenty-three chapters and a membership of approximately 8,000 members. In 1995, Moss founded the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education to aid children with learning disabilities.
