Charles Patrick Studio Opening

May 11, 2017 - Fairfield County Look

Artist Charles Patrick (aka Lee Milazzo) and wife, Cindy Milazzo welcomed intimate friends to a housewarming party of sorts at the new Charles Patrick Studio in Stamford, CT. 

After weeks of developing his latest body of work, along with extensive studio renovations, Charles Patrick unveiled a space that is nothing short of mesmerizing.  The artist takes entertaining and the enjoyment of his art to an unprecedented level, working tirelessly the week before the party to build a bar of reclaimed wood within the studio walls.  Thus the hint has been given that this will certainly be one of only many memorable events to be held at the Charles Patrick Studio.  Artwork is currently on display at the Samuel Owen Gallery, both in Nantucket, MA and Greenwich, CT.

Scope Miami Beach 2016

December 5, 2016 - Mapanare.us

Samuel Owen Gallery (Greenwich, CT) showed wall sculpture pieces by Todd Sanders and Charles Patrick at Scope Miami Beach 2016.

Sanders neon piece asks a question many have been asking for the past month or so. It is to be hoped he is now working on a piece that answers the question.

Patrick's piece is made up of torn up money. There have been a number of artists using money in their work in various ways (some to great effect) and others with less success. This piece, above all else, has a sort of aesthetic beauty to go with an implication; money's value is an illusion.

The Making of Charles Patrick Art

September 21, 2016 - Rebecca Nimerfroh

In the historic Seven Seas building that now houses the Samuel Owen Gallery, there is a small room just off the showroom floor where owner Lee Milazzo painstakingly pins paper butterflies into a canvas. Well, it would seempainstaking. "I can't really do anything for more than thirty minutes without getting really restless, but I can do this for some reason," Lee says with a smile as he carefully places a butterfly into an outline of Nantucket. "I scored really high in spatial relationships on my IQ test, so that means I'm really good at packing a car for a trip, packing a grocery bag and doing this." And if sales are any indication, Lee is very good at creating this very unique art, with commissioned pieces that have included a Batman logo made entirely out of butterflies cut from the covers of Batman comics, a Playboy Bunny made from 1970s Playboy Centerfolds, and the island of Nantucket, made from maps of Nantucket. But Lee is just getting started.
