Virginia artist Moss coming to CACGA

Internationally recognized Virginia artist P. (Pat) Buckley Moss will visit The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen next week to speak at a luncheon and sign books and prints in the center’s Gumenick Family Gallery.

Moss, who has been able to overcome a life-long learning disability and achieve success as an artist, will speak at the Sept. 15 luncheon, which will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets to the luncheon are $50 apiece. The signing event, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., will be free and open to the public. Books, prints and other items will be available for purchase in the gift shop or patrons can bring their own items to be signed.

Moss grew up in New York City and suffered with dyslexia, though it was not diagnosed. Eventually, she landed at the Washington Irving High School for the Fine Arts in Manhattan, and her artist talents began to blossom. She moved to Waynesboro, Va. in 1964, with her husband, and began to incorporate the rural scenery of the region
into her works.

Moss has become a role model for the learning impaired and frequently speaks to special education classes. Donations of Moss’ original works and prints to related children’s charities have raised millions of dollars for their causes. In 1987, the P. Buckley Moss Society was established by several collectors to assist the artist and her husband in their charitable endeavors. It now has 38 chapters and 15,000 members.

The P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education, formed in 1995, helps children with learning disabilities succeed in school and in life. It hosts an annual teachers’ conference (a forum for sharing cutting edge methods of art-based education) and also grants regular teacher and student awards.
