Exhibitions of Pat's work
A WITNESS OF HER TIME: Visitors Comments
Comments from visitors to the art exhibitions
'It is remarkable to see such a variety of work from one person's life. It is like walking into an autobiography. She captured characters of the people she saw.'
'All the work is good but this one (self-portrait, no 38) shows great self-knowledge.'
'A good example of a Deal lugger (no 81). My Gerard's mother had third-share in a Deal lugger.'
Mrs V White DSM, Norwich
At 67 Beach St. Deal
'A wonderful exhibition - exquisite detail yet capturing simplicity. Extraordinary talented lady.'
'I remember her working on it (Deal lugger, no 81) and how pleased she was with the final result.'
An excellent exhibition - invaluable for its wartime scenes and local colour. A fine representation, dynamic and realistic, of the Deal fishermen (no 75).'
'There is beauty in the woman's body (Woman Standing, no 2) and Pat Moody has captured just that.'
'Very interesting and fascinating exhibition.'
At Deal Library
'I see it (no 38) as the essence of Pat shining through. Independent, brave, enjoying life to the full, very much her own person.'
'The fascinating lady I met at drinks dos (where else?!) was as talented an artist as she was an interesting person. This exhibition does credit to an amazing gift.'
'Excellent visual record of a life. PS 1 bought my favourite.'
A powerful and compelling image (no 28). It drew me from the other side of the room. A most exciting visit.'
'Most exciting visit yet to Deal library. Wonderful lady and stories. Brought back memories of Pat. Never realised she painted.'
Roger Hobbs, Deal
At the Deal Maritime & Local History Museum
'How does one choose one (favourite work)? So varied and wonderful. A demonstration of love, of so many forms of art, of humour, of history. I am lost for words.'
'We are only sorry that we were not aware of such a wonderful artist - we are not local. Thank you!'
'A superb legacy from such an quiet, unassuming inhabitant of Deal.'
'Very moving (Christ, no 15, and Christ in God's hand, no 16) and thought provoking.'
'Very interesting exhibition and informative guide - thank you.'
'Wonderful show - thank you.'
At the Landmark Centre, Deal
'Very interesting exhibition. What a pity we did not know more about her during the lifetime.'
'Wonderful exhibition - does my Pat credit.'
'Varied and interesting and sense of humour.'
'A most wonderful lady - so highly talented.'
'Wonderful talent - a great loss to us all.'
'Brilliant and a rare talent, and versatile.'
'All of her work is excellent but Walmer Castle in watercolour is exquisite and shows the delicate brushwork needed.'
'First class exhibition. The Time Ball Tower - lovely atmosphere and all this memorabilia make it 'alive'. Well done.'
'Great sense of fun and great detail.'
'A remarkable exhibition and a pleasant change for the library exhibitions.'
'Very moving and well done.'
'Reminiscent of bygone Deal - the last is the best in my opinion.'
'I like the old man (no 46) in the centre and the mood it creates.'
'We are very lucky that Deal library has so many excellent exhibitions and this is one of the best.'
'Interesting collection and biography.'
'Excellent' 'The most interesting exhibition I have seen for a long time.'
'Nudes are always my favourite - I own a few.'
'For years I owned the Good Intent Cafe Bar and Pat was a dear friend from 1956 to the day she died.'
'A big thank you to those responsible for their efforts in letting us see all this wonderful work of this very talented lady.'
'Impressed with her versatility - it was difficult to choose a favourite - it could have been one of many. 'Head of a Man' was chosen because it kept drawing me back to it.'
'This is a beautifully done exhibition and a fitting tribute to a great lady.'
'Wonderful and varied works - all good in their own way.'
'Christ in God's Hands - of this world yet out of this world.'
