His work has been shown at The Luggage Store Gallery (SF), New Image Art (LA), SPACE Gallery (Portland ME), Parklife (SF), New Bedford Art Museum and the deCordova Sculpture Park & Museum.

He has organized shows at the Distillery Gallery in South Boston since 2012 and is the recent recipient of the Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship (Sculpture/Installation/New Genres) and a participant in the Now & There Public Art Accelerator program.
Pat is working with the Housing Innovation Lab, which partners with different stakeholders to explore and test different ideas that increase housing affordability and opportunity.
