    Back in April, Patagonia T-shirt artists were featured in a “Meet the Artist” reception at Great Pacific Iron Works, the original Patagonia retail store in Ventura, California. As a participant of Ventura City Council’s Spring Artwalk, the event served as an open house and opportunity to showcase the work of Patagonia’s amazing T-shirt artists.

    Approximately 200-250 people attended the open house throughout the evening. We featured great music by Sus Corez and her band and four of the artists were able to attend the event: Geoff McFetridge, AD Maddox, Jason Stowell and Chris Del Moro.

    Big thanks to Sunday, Hillary and Michele for coordinating the installation of the artwork, and to all of the artists who shared pieces for this event. Hit the jump to take a virtual Artwalk of the displays.
