Fifteen years ago, Pat Stark discovered a lifetime of artwork in her home. Most of the art she found had never been seen by anyone but the artist, who had made the decision to stop exhibiting in the 1960s. Pat was startled by how much was there – and by the beauty of the art – so she decided the world needed to see it too. Since then, she has made it her life’s project to catalogue, restore and show this artwork in galleries on the Cape and around the East Coast

This piece came to us from our production partners at Atlantic Public Media through their media training program, The Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole. Martine is a graduate of the workshop and you can find out more about that program at
