Galway artist Patricia Kay poses with some of the 40 gumoil prints and 135 sculptural pieces in her exhibit, “The Maya: An Artistic Homage,” in the Perrella Gallery at Fulton-Montgomery Community College.
For Patricia Kay, going to see Mayan ruins with her husband, Ken Rayna, was more than a travel experience. The ancient temples hidden in the tropical forests of Mexico and Central America sparked a 12-year art project and a deeply personal spiritual journey.
“This has changed me for sure. I never saw it coming,” says Kay, a 57-year-old artist who lives in Galway.
“The Maya: An Artistic Homage,” her solo show at Fulton-Montgomery Community College, is a collection of 175 artworks inspired by Mayan culture.
