Originally from Iowa, Almont artist Pat Schermerhorn takes inspiration for her work from the people, places, and things of western North Dakota. Lately, her focus has been on creating past and present scenes of the Missouri River.
She has her own studio and gallery in Almont and a studio in Cody, Wyoming, where she lives part-time. She works in pen and ink, pastels, scratchboard, and oils. She has developed her own technique of stippling - or pointillism - using technical pens and colored inks to make whole images from overlapping layers of tiny dots.
Her work can be found in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, and Germany and has been exhibited in North Dakota, Wyoming, California, Texas, Florida, New York City, and Washington, D.C. She is a member of the Bismarck Art and Galleries Association and makes her work available through the Cody County Art League and Gallery in Cody, Wyoming; the Carbon County Art League and Gallery in Red Lodge, Montana; and the Rising Sun Gallery in Powell, Wyoming. Also, she is a member of Women Artists of the West, the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, and the National League of American Pen Women. During the months of April, May, and June 2003, she was one of the featured artists in the offices of North Dakota Governor John Hoeven and First Lady Mikey Hoeven.
