On location in Maine

Recent Events

Mr.Fitzpatrick recently completed a second fellowship at the prestigious Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. In it's brief history this highly selective artist's colony in Amherst,Va. has drawn an international group of participants from over 50 countries around the world and all 50 states (Acceptance is awarded through a juried process after submission of past works and proposals). Eric found this gathering of authors, poets, composers and film makers to be a very stimulating environment.
