"A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires."
About the manheim Gallery
Patt Manheim came to Arizona in the early 1960s to study and work as an artist. As a graduate of ASU, she taught art in public schools in Phoenix and Scottsdale while studying Udinotti, developing her own work and showing in several galleries.
But then she changed direction.
Patt returned to New York where she owned a gallery and then moved on to complete a doctorate at Cornell University. She became a university professor and enjoyed a full career as an educator and as a national and international consultant. When she retired from academe in 2005, Patt returned to her beloved Arizona with some thought of renewing her artistic self. But this too has taken an unexpected direction... She saw the building and her studio space became the gallery.
"When I first saw the beautiful stone and brick building evocative of a Frank Lloyd Wright design, I knew I had found the location for THE MANHEIM".
